As a black latinx multi-racial person who identifies as non-binary and trans -masculine, I have experience working with all types of people from many different backgrounds.
Our lives here on earth are a creative experience! At times, we need a place to rest and tend to our inner world. I view the therapeutic process as a brave space to access parts of ourselves that we want to grow and transform. My goal in working with you is to provide a supportive environment that will cultivate an increased awareness of your needs, self-compassion and understanding of who you are becoming.

Through EMERGE Center for Social and Emotional Learning I am working to expand the quality, range and accessibility of services for young people and other marginalized populations, such as people of color and LGBTQ individuals.
Life is full of challenges, but challenges give us the opportunity to look at things in new ways, connect with others and find our inner strengths. My goal as a therapist is to help you in this process. We will work on identifying what you are experiencing, how you got there, where you want to go and what you need to achieve your goals. I strive to be both a focused listener and active participant in sessions, and to create a safe space where clients feel understood and respected. Through the therapy process, we develop a relationship that has the potential to be transformative and healing.

Have anxious thoughts become overwhelming and led you to doubt yourself and your decisions? Maybe it’s tough to just get out of a bed in the morning, or you just keep pushing and striving, but have a hard time accessing a sense of fulfillment and peace? Maybe you feel like you’re always giving to and pleasing others, but don’t ever feel nourished and “filled up” yourself?

Over the last two decades my clientele has changed along with my experience, skill acquisition and personal life. First as a clinician, then business owner, family man and student of life and living, I have been fortunate to have a career that reflects my own life. Peek moments, so many blessings, long trials and struggles and big losses have rounded the edges of once sharp ideals and brought a humble gratitude for the souls I've met in my office. While I have a solid grasp of several powerful treatment modalities, my goal first is to be a good human to those who seek me out.

In this hour you are wanting to feel more joy, perhaps feeling alone or overwhelmed by your needs and the needs of your family and friends. You question how to find feelings of self love, while everything is changing and feelings of intense grief wash over you. You feel ready to confront past hurts. People in your life have required care-taking and could not be there for you, or maybe your thoughts and feelings have been shamed and you have a hard time trusting yourself. You're shy and timid when it comes to opening up. You know that you are ready to learn how to be vulnerable around others, learning how to set boundaries.

Life can be challenging at times. However, I believe that people have an amazing ability to heal and transform negative patterns that are no longer serving them, as well as develop more meaningful ways to approach life's hurdles. We can often get stuck during difficult moments, and outside support can be helpful during these times. As my client, I will support and encourage you to identify the solutions that are best for your life. I understand that deciding to reach out for help can be intimidating. My treatment approach will respect and honor your individual process.

I enjoy working with clients who are experiencing roadblocks on their path to a more fulfilled life. Barriers to wellness are not limited to the mental realm and may include physical issues, sexual issues, relationship issues and spiritual issues. These issues interrelate and thus must all be addressed holistically. The symptom is not the cause and is often key in figuring out where the problem resides. I believe in the power of the human beings to heal themselves. I see my role as helping identify solutions and offering tools for personal growth and healing. I seek to empower my clients as they heal, grow and develop resilience.

Life is inherently full of challenges. Work and/or school, family, relationships all have their own difficulties and you end up feeling depleted and unhappy. At times, you may feel you can manage your challenges, and other times you may feel overwhelmed, stuck, hopeless, unsafe, vulnerable, or even lost. You may feel hurt and like you are carrying too much stress and worry. You are searching for a way to cope with your stressors and are seeking more fulfillment in your life. You’ve tried different ways to help yourself, but your challenges persist. Navigating life is hard, but you are worthy of support as you go through it.
