As a Black man raised by a single mother, I have a special affinity to preserving the health, stability, and wellness of the Black family.
**NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Welcome to your first step and a vital decision to choose you! Being seen and heard are undervalued in our society. Do you allow the space and care that you need to be whole? Pouring from an empty cup is difficult. I welcome individuals, couples, and families, whether seeking self-enlightenment, coping, better communication, or unity. Though implied in the text, I extend a special invitation to the men. We feel we always HAVE to be "ok," but we know better, fellas! Seeking help is a show of strength.

Are you a Black male who is struggling with society's expectations and standards of being strong and withhold your thoughts and feelings from others? Has this led to anger, rage, sadness, hopelessness, and dedicating an extra effort to everything that you do? You may have been inundated with images in film, television, and social media that depict Black males as overly masculine, and in some cases, aggressive, violent, and hyper-sexual. Being vulnerable as a young Black man is socially unacceptable. It sends a message that to be accepted as a Black man, you must fit this specific role in which strength and stoicism are mandatory.

I collaborate with people who want to uproot stigma, stuckness, and what no longer serves in their lives. I support people who want to plant reparative seeds, and who want to grow a life-story that centers healing, radical self-care, improved quality of life, and deliberate joy. I hold specialized awareness to the unique issues of mental health and intersectionality, focusing primarily on racial identity/issues impacting black women, LGBTQIA+ communities, BIPOC, *all women, and allies.

Our mission is heal and eradicate the reverberating effects trauma in the African American community.
In person sessions available! Have you found yourself in the same relationships over and over? Are you STUCK in unhealthy relationships with your family and friends? Have you ever said to yourself “How did I get here again?” Do you have difficulty saying “no?” Unhealthy relationships can leave us heartbroken and unfulfilled. We spend countless amounts of energy trying to figure out where we went wrong all to no avail. We become sad, angry, jaded and defeated. Sometimes we give up on relationships all together. It hurts to much to stay and we are too afraid to change. We get STUCK between a rock and a hard place.

As a sex therapist focusing on the experiences of people within historical and current-day contexts, I seek to support the exploration, healing, and restorative practices concerning our bodies, sexuality, and pleasure. We will explore how you see yourself within your own body by creating a space that feels safe for you within our sessions. I am a sex therapist in training. I am an active member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). AASECT does not find sufficient empirical evidence to support the classification of sex addiction or porn addiction as a mental health issue.

Hello! After working 30+ years as a business leader with a highly successful career history of leading business and personal transformation, coaching, mentoring and training, I responded to the “call” from the Holy Spirit and pursued my passion of helping others with life's struggles and began to exercise my spiritual gifts of exhortation and mercy. My foundational scripture which anchors me is Proverbs 11:14 which says, "Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety."

You’ve had issues with anxiety or depression for as long as you can remember. You’ve worked so hard at overcoming your issues in the past and you fear that if you let yourself fully feel your sadness and anxiety, you won't be able to recover. Your family has told you that you are too dramatic, and this has caused you to not want to share your negative feelings with others. You worry that they may grow tired of your negativity. You need an outlet to talk through your feelings, but you can’t bring yourself to go to yourself to your friends and family again. Things could be worse, but you know life could also be so much better!
