Jenifer’s clinical practice has involved treating, both, chronic mental illness as well as substance use disorders. She holds a keen interest in each of these practice areas, especially where they tend to intersect, and have been able to practice in a myriad of settings, including intensive outpatient clinics, local shelters for children and young mothers, and the 15th JDC Drug Court. Jenifer feels fortunate to be able to serve a community so close to her heart and look forward to continuing her efforts to ensure Acadiana area residents’ mental health needs are acknowledged and treated through collaboration and early intervention.
