Past experiences can heavily influence how we see and operate in the world. Such experiences can cause us to become emotionally stuck in thoughts and behaviors that prevent us from engaging in healthy relationships, stunt our mental development, and block progression. Congratulations! Understanding that you are in need of therapeutic support and actively seeking it out is a strength. It could lead to self-fulfillment. I can assist in this transition by working closely with you to help process issues, understand what is needed and set realistic goals.

My practice is rooted in the belief that there is power in knowing and telling your own story. Who are you? Where did you come from? What's important to you? Let's work together to untangle your story, identify your strengths, goals, passions, and barriers; and make you the author of what comes next. I work with people who want to make positive changes, but feel paralyzed by stress, fear, indecision, or old habits. I can also help you learn concrete strategies for managing uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, transitions, health conditions or problematic relationships.

My clinical interests include working with depression, mood/anxiety disorders, relationship difficulties, life transitions, family issues, grief, loss and more. I use several psychotherapeutic modalities in order to best help the client, rather than trying to force the client to conform to a certain style of therapy. I personally know how difficult it is to seek help when you feel overwhelmed. I offer an initial free 20-minute phone consultation to determine if we would be a good therapeutic fit.

Does it seem like you are often on edge, irritable, angry, or anxious? Do people complain that you are isolated, a workaholic, drink too much, are shut down emotionally? Is it difficult to get motivated to do anything? Maybe you are haunted by a horrific incident that happened to you. Perhaps you are struggling with a significant loss. Often the people we care about the most take the brunt of our anger, irritability and anxiety. This can lead to strained or conflicted relationships with a spouse, other family members, co-workers or friends and may result in significant negative consequences to a marriage and career.

Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance.

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 and Latin Americans specifically but people of color in general, share the same mental health issues as the rest of society, with arguably even greater stressors due to racism, prejudice, oppression and economic disparities. Work, family responsibilities, and other commitments often take priority over the need for therapy/counseling, which can be viewed as a luxury item instead of necessary self-care.
