Esoterics Counseling was founded by a Black male therapist to provide quality mental health care by credentialed practitioners who recognize the unique challenges, transitions, and actualities of navigating life as a marginalized individual. We provide mental health support through a decidedly anti-racist and queer -friendly perspective while embedding cultural humility, awareness, and responsiveness into our practice. We strive to build a therapeutic alliance based less on diagnosis and more on uncovering effective strategies to assist with clarity, agency, and purpose.

My experience addressing issues around masculinity and the socialization of men in our culture also aid in the self-discovery and healing process.
I have a substantial capacity for being present with people working with extreme emotions and painful conflict and providing them with insight and compassion. Blending therapeutic approaches with mindfulness and grounding techniques, I focus on the here and now to help clients recognize and work on their patterns as they arise at the moment. My clients include adults, adolescents, and children struggling with mental health disorders, as well as individuals and families with profound histories of abuse, addiction, and trauma. I am a strong proponent of including children impacted by adult behaviors in the conversation and healing process.

From individuals, couples, refugees, survivors of sexual assault, single parents, men , and women.
Weekend Availability. Anxiety is like an unwelcome house-guest. Depression is like a toxic roommate. Both need to be shown the door. We can work on both, or many other life adjustment issues in a comfortable setting. Whether sessions are held individually or with your partner, we can work to set attainable goals to improve lives. I believe strongly that inside most everyone is not only a good person, but a person who has the answers and strength to overcome whatever problems they are facing.

On any given day, I might see a woman with career issues, a man with emotional intimacy concerns, a couple with communication difficulties and a child with angry outbursts.
My therapeutic style is based on the belief that good rapport is essential to accomplish our therapeutic goals. While I think in terms of family of origin issues, I intervene through many diverse approaches depending on the needs of the person.These approaches include thoughts, bodily sensations, feelings, and the experiences of childhood. I follow the lead of whom I am working with and tailor my psychotherapeutic work to fit where they are at in their psychological development. A primary focus is to help one become at ease with oneself.

I've worked in the mental health field since 2000 with various populations (individuals, couples and families), however, my specialties include men 's studies, pornography/sexual addiction, relationship health for married couples & EMDR. I especially find men experience challenges in life and lack the means or opportunities to be supported, validated heard. I strive to be practical and direct, yet effective in fostering change. Whether guiding couples in marriage prep or in marital strain, I develop understanding of relationships, creating an open, honest and safe communication style which fosters intimacy through challenges.

Feeling stuck and can't figure out why? Maybe you have noticed patterns that are getting in the way. You might react too quickly, getting angry and loud, and then feeling guilt or shame afterwards. Perhaps, you find yourself going blank in different situations where you don't know what to say and feel like shutting down. Maybe you might want connection with people, but it might be hard to trust and put yourself out there. Even knowing these patterns doesn't make it easy to figure out what to do. Our body is wired to keep us safe and sometimes these patterns develop after trauma as ways of trying to help us.

*CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS IN-PERSON; TELEHEALTH LIMITED AND BASED ON INDIVIDUAL NEED* Right now, you're looking at this because something in your life isn't working. You're anxious, sad, withdrawn, frustrated...not the person you want to be. Chances are, this isn't the first therapist's profile you've read and you're overwhelmed with choices. Part of you may even feel like giving up, but you know you can't. People in your life need you; most importantly, YOU need you, and you need to start feeling better now. You're not alone in your struggle, you don't have to be alone in your progress, and there is hope for change.

I hold the opinion that most challenges to our health come from things that have happened to us in the past. Sometimes people need help processing what has happened to them and understanding how it impacts their life today. I believe that people are generally good and are always striving to live their best life. I like to come alongside someone, in an accepting and curious manner, to help them figure out how to move forward in the most healthful way possible.

Psychotherapy is a process of slowing down and working together to understand what has been troubling you. The type of therapy I practice is grounded in making sense of how past relationships, experiences, and identities are impacting you in the here and now. The patient-therapist relationship becomes our primary source for understanding your patterns in other relationships and I strive to create a therapy relationship that fosters curiosity, vulnerability, and growth.

For a quicker response please email. I provide a warm, safe, nonjudgmental space for clients to feel at ease talking about their distress. As a result, they gain more insights into their thoughts, feelings and behaviors allowing them to see their situation from a different perspective and make necessary changes. While I do not interfere with the process of self-discovery, I believe in challenging problematic thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that contribute to distress and help find healthier more productive ones.

My approach is to make each person I work with feel comfortable and safe. Engagement and the working relationship is everything. I hope to help the people I work with identify their goals and develop a plan to make them happen. Often this means facing shame, vulnerability, and fear. However, with my support and some courage we can help you take the necessary first steps to recovery.

I specialize in treating depression, anxiety/panic attacks, adjustment to life issues and men 's health issues.
At some point in life most of us experience feeling lost, frustrated, sad, or anxious. When it gets to the point where you feel immobile or stuck, that's when counseling can be helpful. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to explore feelings and thoughts that keep you bogged down. I can help you develop new coping strategies so when you're faced with difficult challenges, you have the tools to overcome them. Whether your needs are short or long term, I firmly believe that counseling can improve the quality of your life.

As a practitioner of nearly 20yrs I have served a broad population and addressed numerous issues in my practice. Few of us manage to navigate life without some need of assistance at some point. I appreciate the vulnerability therapy demands and am always aware of the importance of a safe, non-judgmental or shaming environment. It takes courage to come face to face with ourselves and I recognize the struggles of each individual. I believe in a holistic approach when listening and offering insight.

In the heart of every problem lies its solution. We spend enormous amounts of time and energy searching for answers outside ourselves, when the answers lie within. Heartwork is a creative process, which teaches one to find fundamental solutions to both everyday problems and the more difficult life questions, transforming "problems" into doorways to compassion, insight and joy. My award-winning book, "Heartwork: How To Get What You Really, REALLY Want" gives one my orientation and the primary tools for working through one's issues. The e-book version can be downloaded at my website: www.awakentheheart.org.

I am particularly passionate about working with those going through challenging life transitions, LGBTQ concerns, and men 's issues.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in the treatment of young adults and young professionals. I love working with others to find or create their own meaning and identity. Often this requires working on the issues that get in the way, like anxiety, depression, grief, or stress. Whether through a desire to change circumstances, improve self-compassion, or develop better relationships with important people, forming or changing your sense of self will be one of the most important experiences of your life.

You want to live more freely, more wholly, more in touch with who you really are. You want to find your way to wholeness and freedom. You may be looking to share and explore things that have never felt safe to open up before. You may have tried and benefited from other kinds of therapy, and are interested now in treatment that is focused on real, embodied experience now, in the present, rather than endlessly re-telling the same stories. You may have realized how the past has affected you, and you would rather define yourself than being bound by it. You are ready above all to reclaim your own innate goodness, wholeness, and strength.
