Essential Touchstones is a comprehensive organization offering Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) tailored to adolescents (ages 13 to 18) and adults. Our team of doctorate-level, licensed, or provisionally licensed clinicians work with clients to address the unique needs of each individual, fostering a comprehensive and integrated treatment approach.

In addition to our specialized therapeutic programs, we provide essential Psychiatric Medication Management services overseen by a qualified Psychiatrist and a dedicated Mental Health Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. This aspect of our care is particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with co-occurring mental illnesses, such as addiction and mood disorders. Our team works collaboratively with clients to optimize the effectiveness of psychiatric medications.

Trusted and Certified

I believe in the benefits of early intervention for mental health conditions through introduction to recovery combined with empirically validated clinical modalities and experiential skills training. Medicine may be necessary for chemical imbalances. This combination can provide the balance necessary to prevent lifelong addiction and mental health conditions.

I was reared by two very creative, generous, and public servant oriented parents who taught me to use the skills I have to help others be the best that they can be. After studying Business Administration at the University of Mississippi for three years, my interest broadened to encompass the study of human behavior and psychology. Determined to help others find meaning and passion in life, I studied psychology and counseling for 10 years. While at Jackson State University I became fascinated with anthropology and culture. I completed an internship in Salt Lake City, Utah, where there were endless opportunities to experience culture and explore new topographical regions.
