I help Black women in their late 20s to early 30s get out of unfulfilling relationships and recreate self-love & happiness - single or partnered.
You pretend like you’re okay with this “sorta-in-a-relationship-but-not”. He sends “good morning” texts & when you’re together, there’s an intense chemistry like you two were made for each other. Despite that, you’re constantly overthinking his every word and action. You crave planned dates but get “You up?” texts and last minute “hangouts”. You either feel like you’re too much or not enough. You tell yourself to be patient & hope it will pan into an official title. But you’re exhausted being on the rollercoaster of anxiety, hope and disappointment. You’ve tried to end it but you always get reeled back in.

I center my work with Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) persons at their intersections, most often LGBTQA+, artists, activists, deep seekers, and other healers. Many have a strong spiritual connection to their current obstacles and are willing to integrate that into their treatment. Presenting concerns range from racial trauma to life transitions, grief to identity. There is an understanding that what is presenting is not a problem, where the goal is creating more space around struggles, creating more options, finding a different perspective, and Being more fully.

NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME Having difficulty finding a therapist of color who understands your experience? I understand your struggle. As an African American male, I too had trouble finding a therapist of my own. Being a person of color in our society comes with its own unique experience, along with the everyday struggles and challenges we all face. It’s difficult and frustrating to have to explain this unique experience to someone before you can even address your reason for being there. But you continue searching because you know you need someone who understands your experience and can help you with life’s struggles.

Emotional pain distorts our view of the world. The longer our pain lasts, the more unhappy we become. Unlike a well meaning friend or relative, a therapist can consider your concerns from a fresh, objective, perspective. But a therapist will not solve your problems for you; he will guide you by listening, questioning and observing—- so that you can find your own answers when extreme unhappiness, overwhelming anxiety or fear, feelings of inadequacy and low self esteem, sexual problems, and traumatic events interfere with your life or relationships with others.
