Do you struggle with feeling disconnected from yourself and others? Do you put your needs at the bottom of the to-do list? Do you wonder if life should feel somehow better? Happier? Now more than ever, people are feeling anxious, overwhelmed and uncertain about how they are supposed to manage their relationships, careers and their lives. Pushing away your needs and not taking time for yourself can lead to long-term issues for your mind and body. I believe it shouldnʼt be so hard to live a better life.

I connect best with individuals and couples who have a lot of emotions, but have trouble communicating their emotional experiences to people in their lives. These individuals may feel misunderstood, unaccepted, different, or alone, but want desperately to feel understood and accepted.

As a Registered Nurse for the past 27 years, I have had the unique opportunity to care for patients in various stages of their physical, emotional, and mental health. It has been my calling to walk with patients as they navigate through difficult times. Unfortunately, people of color have been subjected to systemic disenfranchisement and social injustice, which has often resulted in trauma. As a therapist, I understand how this trauma can affect you mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. My goal is to accompany you on your journey, to help you unravel life's complexities, and to empower you to fulfill your destiny.

Counseling is a partnership between the client (that's you) and the provider (that's me). My role as counselor is to meet you where you are, provide support and clarification when needed, and help you develop the tools/skills you need to accomplish your goals. I specialize in men's mental health. Although I also work with couples and families. My approach is direct but not directive. We will spend part of our time in the first session establishing how we will work together and what we will do. My practice is self-pay, meaning payment is due at time of service. We do not process insurance.

I am currently unable to accept new clients. Clients with more immediate needs are welcome to contact my office to see if another provider is available. In my experience, clients who have experienced trauma often don’t feel heard and find the world extremely overwhelming. It can often feel like life will never get better but healing is possible. Our life experiences don’t have to define us and we don’t have to remain stuck in symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety or use substances to cover up the pain from all of these issues. Again, healing is possible.
