I believe life is directed and driven from our innermost being. I believe our hopes, desires, and our actions are motivated from within. Many times those motivations are difficult to see, explain, or to understand. This can leave us with questions as to why life doesn't seem to work for us. Why do we carryout unproductive behaviors and maintain unproductive relationships. Lets explore together the why, and consider alternative ways to approach life.

Life can be difficult and recent events have made it much harder. As the Covid-19 crisis begins to end and we return to "normal" life there are still hurdles for us to navigate. Having worked as a crisis counselor at FEMA disaster centers, I helped many people work through emotional difficulties in the aftermath of a crisis. During the pandemic I offer telehealth sessions. Outside of the residual COVID-19 issues, you might just need a caring person to listen and help you navigate the hills and find refuge in the valleys of everyday life. I welcome the opportunity to help you obtain your goals.

As an African American male, a retired law enforcement official and now as a licensed associate counselor, I possess a unique set of clinical and interpersonal skills designed to hold the room long enough for men and young teens to drop their shields of armor and speak their truths without fear of judgement or criticism using evidence based theories.
Even strong men struggle. And most times we struggle in silence and suffer alone because we have not been taught the language of emotions. So we retreat into a cave of isolation to process the complexities of life and get lost in that darkness because we do not know how to ask for help. And the whole family suffers because he is present but not engaged. And when a man cannot find the answers to life's dilemnas, he loses his sense of worth and falls into addictions to medicate the pain of depression. And that pathology becomes the only legacy we leave for our sons and daughters.

My specialty is working with African American single mothers suffering from Depression and Anxiety.
Do you worry about what your life will be like in the future? Have you found yourself in one failed relationship after the other and wonder when you will meet the right person? Do you have the desire to move upward in your career, but question your capabilities? Do you find yourself putting everyone before YOU and not making enough time for yourself, your interests, and your dreams? More often than we realize, we lose ourselves in the process of battling the struggles of parenthood, relationships, careers, and other life situations. We become depressed about our current situation and anxious about what will happen next.

I strongly value inclusivity, liberation, and respect--values I incorporate into my work by staying centered in a Black feminist and HAES perspective. My clients arrive in therapy coping with trauma, depression, anxiety, and grief. Together, we work not only toward developing healthy coping skills, but toward healing for a sense of purpose, contentment, and peace. Therapy is an excellent place to affirm and internalize a greater sense of self worth and to practice a compassionate attitude toward yourself.

You don't want to feel beat down, let down, depressed, overwhelmed, out of control, broken or ashamed. But the daily experience of your life being undervalued by society on top of the difficulties of work, relationships, and personal struggles just seems like too much. You feel like relationships won't work, it's impossible to stop circumstances from getting you down, and you can't win for losing. You doubt who you really are. You question the strength within you, the courage you were born with, and the wisdom from those before you.
