"You are finding yourself unsatisfied with your life. There are emotions, behaviors, and patterns in your life that you are looking to move past and change, and maybe your entire life feels very off from where you would like it to be. Perhaps you know what specifically needs to change, or you need help looking for where to start on the journey of self inquiry and growth. You need a space where you can speak your mind to a neutral third party, a compassionate ear to hear your story, and a plan to move towards your goals in life. The healing process begins right now once you have decided to start looking for help. "

"As an African American male, I am well aware of the reluctance in our community to express personal feelings of pain, distress and overall discomfort around the things troubling us. African Americans specifically and people of color in general, share the same mental health issues as the rest of the world, with arguably even greater stressors due to racism, prejudice, and economic disparities. Work, family responsibilities and other commitments too often take priority over the need for therapy/counseling, which can be viewed as a luxury item instead of necessary self-care. "

I've witnessed profound impacts in my work with people, where shame becomes self acceptance and overwhelm becomes relief and ease. I welcome everyone who wants to work with me, and especially welcome those who may not have felt comfortable in therapy before, possibly due to experiencing marginality, societal oppression, or being shy.
