My identity as a Gay Black Man gives me a unique passion as therapist and a deep love in supporting this population with coming out, managing relationships and growing in self-acceptance. I work with a variety of presenting concerns and populations; however, my specialization is working with gay men and the LGBTQ+ population. I provide support and a nonjudgmental environment for you to process, explore and evaluate your concerns.

I also have a special interest in working with Veterans, LGBTQIA+, and non-monogamous communities at any point in their journey.
I conceptualize and work from evidence-based treatments which allows me to develop a strength-based approach unique to each individual. Additionally, I believe that psychotherapy can also address the relationship between mental health and physical reactions or symptoms in the body. I view therapy like an exercise program; each person has their own goals and areas of desired growth. Sometimes, just like in exercise, therapy can feel overwhelming to start, but through a collaborative and client-centered treatment approach, we can take the first step towards your goals together.

There is no manual for the LGBTQ experience. People in our community often find themselves having spent their childhood trying to stay safe, only to reach adulthood without the skills and relationships to have the fulfilling life they deserve. We often feel like we are spending our lives playing catch up, trying to reclaim our past while living out our present and future all at the same time.

My specialty training includes LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy (SMU), Sex Therapist certification in progress (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors & Therapists / AASECT), Indigenous Circle of Wellness certification in progress (The So'oh-Shináli Sister Project).
To honestly know yourself is to pursue a lifelong journey of self-exploration, to gain a deeper understanding of oneself in the wake of life events, and, especially, to be willing to share with others who may be navigating a similar quest-- or even with those who are able to extend a great deal of empathy. This may be tough, scary work, but the rewards are invaluable, to put it lightly. You gain a deeper sense of freedom and autonomy to decide how you want to live, and truly become the author of your own story.

I work in the LGBTQ+ community; with recovering people; with families impacted by addiction; with those trying to break free of exploitation and and traumatic bonding.
Based in Phoenix, I work with clients around the country and the world as licensing allows, including via Telehealth. I'm so glad you're here. The world can feel like an inhospitable home at times. Relationships can be unsettled, self-medicating can dominate, and the past can haunt like a persistent familiar ghost. Healing is necessary, because you are necessary. No matter how you may struggle - there is no one else quite like you, you are the very best at being you, you possess gifts and magic that only you can bring to the world. Therapy is about coming home to yourself - your physical body, emotional body or heart, and mind.
