My Experience:

Catherine Vicknair bio photo | Providers | Health & Counseling Center | Covington, LA | Baton Rouge, LACatherine Vicknair, M.S., PLPC, NCC (she/her/hers)

I primarily work with adults and adolescents in dealing with the struggles life throws at them. With all of my clients, my goal is to work with them mutually on developing solutions and providing them with the tools they need to live confident, independent, and successful lives (#liveyourbestlife). I’m most passionate about working with clients in the LGBTQ+ community and related issues, but I also enjoy working with clients that have other struggles such as anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, anger, coping skills, life transitions, self-esteem, stress, emotional control, etc.I usually practice from a cognitive-behavioral perspective as well as reality therapy and solution-focused approaches. However, I believe that all of my clients are unique and sometimes other modalities may work better for some in which case, I will adjust my techniques according to my client’s needs.In addition to psychotherapy, I also provide Evox services.

The Evox is a brain mapping device that uses perception reframing to improve client issues. This service can be used independently or in conjunction with therapy. To learn more about the Evox and how it works, I’ve provided a video for you to view: am certified in Telehealth counseling and starting March 23, 2020, I will conduct sessions online until further notice.

I am available for appointments Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm. I do not accept insurance but a sliding scale available. I accept payments in the form of cash, check, card, or PayPal.

Tara White

Currently Tara White resides in Covington, Louisiana with her husband and two children. She has been prayerfully meditating and attending retreats for over 14 years in the Catholic tradition. She has served to educate women about the dignity of their bodies as a medical missionary in Guatemala as well as in her local medical community. Her body, mind and soul journey to health started 17 years ago when she was struggling with a health issue that placed her on a pilgrimage to deepen her relationship with God. Her practice of soulfully retreating daily is part of her daily ritual and is what healed her and made her whole. She believes in four pillars that keep her balanced and whole; it is nutrition, hormonal optimization, Christian meditation, and an exercise plan. Upon discovering Pietra she realized that this flow style movement exercised not only mind and body but enhances the most important aspect the SOUL. Most exercise experiences strictly work on mind and body leaving the soul untouched. C.S. Lewis said it best – Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done. Over the years with her love of exercise, foods that empower the body and the development of her interior life it seems organically fit that she has become a Pietra Fitness instructor. She is enthusiastic to partake and offer this mind, body, and soul experience to others so they can turn an everyday routine into a ritual and retreat for the soul.

Cheryl Fahr

SoulCore Instructor

Cheryl Fahr is a native of Mandeville where she resides with her husband Michael and three children, Hunter, Travis, and Michael. Cheryl has a BSN in nursing that she obtained through the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and practiced as a nurse in Pediatric Intensive care as well as Children’s Oncology for 10 years. Currently, she is a stay at home Mom who keeps very busy by volunteering at her church Mary Queen of Peace, as well as her children’s school and various Catholic women’s organizations. Cheryl has been exercising all of her life and has enjoyed all types of exercise, however she was introduced to SoulCore through a moms rosary group, and immediately was drawn to the stillness of the practice through meditation. Exercise has always been a passion for her and a way to relieve stress. She always felt drawn to teach exercise classes, but nothing ever seemed like the right fit or the right time. Cheryl feels like God led her to this practice and she wound up going to Indiana to obtain her certification to teach SoulCore. She has now been teaching once a week for 2 years at her church and has recently added teaching a class at the Health and Counseling Center on Tuesdays at noon. She has thoroughly enjoyed diving deeper into scripture as she prepares for the meditations and feels that the practice strengthens her body, mind, and soul.
