Announcement icon Hi. At this time, I am only seeing patients virtually. I plan on revisiting this issue during the New Year.
Dr. Gadsden is a licensed psychology associate and a culturally competent insight-oriented psychotherapist with over 17 years of experience in providing therapy to individuals, couples, and families. He earned his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology in 2012 from Howard University. He previously earned his master’s degree in 2005 from Teachers College, Columbia University. His diverse career and training include over 17 years in academia, teaching and training both master’s level and doctoral level students, and conducting research and producing scholarship focused on masculinity and emotional intimacy.
My practice focuses on males, adults, families, and couples. My work with clients is centered on understanding how unresolved life experiences and traumas impede a deep knowing of the self, creativity, mutually satisfying and healthy relationships, and authentic living. I create a judgement free zone that allows clients to deeply dig at their own pace.
My approach is highly relational in nature. During our work together, we will build an open and safe space for you to awaken the sleeping phoenix within you! This is your time to tap into and step into the real YOU!
