A trusting and confidential client/counselor relationship is the foundation for therapy, reducing emotional pain, increased motivation and developing your strengths. Through individual counseling we identify values, become aligned with those values and help move from isolation to connection. My style of counseling is humanistic and responsive to creating a safe space, providing evidence-based practices. My hope is for healing, and to eliminate the stigma of receiving counseling services in the African American community, with a particularly emphasis on African American Men becoming better for themselves and their families.

There is probably a lot going on in life right now, and you feel overwhelmed or at the end of your rope. Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety or depression, and you find yourself "pushing through" because that is what you have always done. Or you have suffered so long, you cannot remember what it feels like to enjoy life. Perhaps you have even tried therapy in the past but it “just didn't work for me” or “my therapist didn't understand me or how to help me.” If so, it is important to receive counseling from someone qualified and willing to work to understand your specific struggles and develop a plan to accomplish your goals.

I believe that although many clients have similarities, each client is different and deserves individualized intervention strategies. I can assist each client in developing their specific box of tools to address their personal issues and to meet their counseling goals. I believe that the best view of therapy is a holistic view. A hammer is an effective tool until a wrench is needed. A toolbox with many diverse tools has the best chance at repairing a multitude of concerns. I will offer evidenced based strategies as well as experimental strategies that are tied to Art & Science.

“Let not your circumstances define your possibilities.” There may be those occasions you are feeling as if there is always something holding you back. You may feel as if life stressors at home and work are becoming too much for you to bare. You are in survivor mode experiencing one trying situation after another. Because of this you may find yourself feeling as if you are working four times harder than others to achieve only half as much. Chaos appears to have taken center stage in your life and self-medicating has become a means to cope.

I believe in the healing power of processing through our experiences and emotions without judgment in a safe environment. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), with the help of other techniques such as grounding and mindfulness, we’ll work through your experiences and challenge those negative thoughts, honor your emotions and rework behaviors. Trauma — rather, the healing of trauma — is my calling and passion. I’m grateful to have had opportunities to travel around the world to provide trauma education and counseling following disasters or other traumatic experiences.
