Are You Ready To Be Challenged? I use your supportive spiritual tools (including soul healing), introspection, and redirection in relationships. Individual, couples, and family therapy can be billed to insurance. Couples include straight, married, partnered, bf/gf, LGBTQ. Family communication for those who are having difficulty communicating within the family. You can schedule immediately by going to motorcityhope.org, selecting schedule appointment, finding my name in the drop-down, and seeing my open spots. FYI: there is a waiting list for insurance paying clients. Cash clients have open spaces
Couple (straight, married, engaged, bf/gf, LGBTQ+), and family therapy. Focusing on communication and personal responsibility. If you know who Dr. Phil is and Iyanla VanZant, I am the spirit child of them combined lol. I can also do Therapy IN your home (individual, family and couples)
Individual therapy is one thing, and we can do that. Family and Marriage is another and is more intense. I focus on individual responsibility as well as rebuilding trust in the relationship and the family. Let's work together to do it.

I usually use CBT or ACT in my therapy practice. I have worked with several different communities and individuals that I have found it best to find out what you want and we will work from there. If you're looking for that therapist that nods and just ask how you feel...I'm not that one. I'm looking for solutions, support and answers for you, your family or relationship.
