The most important parts of mental wellness are the ability to increase one’s self-awareness and broaden one’s perspective. As your counselor, I will provide a safe and judgment free environment for you to gain a better understanding of whatever issues you are dealing with as an individual, couple, or family including marital/relationship, mental health issues. The main goal of most clients is "to feel better," and I am here to help you make that goal more specific so that you can grow in the areas most important to you. I also strive to destigmatize counseling for men, Black / African-Americans, and other minority groups.

As a Black , Queer, and Non-binary therapist, I know how difficult it can be to find places that feel secure and affirming.
Finding a therapist who validates and reflects core aspects of your identity can be difficult. My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for you to feel accepted, respected, and understood. I appreciate working with a diverse group of clients, especially individuals from marginalized and underserved communities (BIPOC, Trans, Queer, & GNC). My practice is sex positive and ENM-affirming. My approach is intersectional, collaborative, and based in a social justice framework.

The power of your problems will not last forever. Don’t allow unwanted feelings to go untreated. You do not have to continue suppressing hurt, shame, guilt, depression, anxiety, etc. Life can be challenging. It is okay to retreat & gather yourself. In boxing, a fighter utilizes the corner-man to gain insight for the next round. Allow me to be your corner-man, helping you prepare for your next round in life, marriage, your relationship, career, and/or realizing your own happiness. Some rounds may be more trying than others, leading us to make adjustments; however, we will not lose the fight for your improved well-being!

Are you tired of feeling stuck and stagnant? Have you emotionally tapped out? Do you want to know your purpose and be happier? I know you've realized that where you are right now is not where you want to stay. So, why is self care so important? A lack of self care can lead to feelings of "stuckness", burnout, loneliness, irritability, anxiety, and depression. Practicing self care is all about improving those areas of life and your overall well-being. I encourage you to visit my website to learn more, view my availability, and schedule your first session.

Are you the one in your family/circle who has "made it" and now you have become the exhausted rescuer for the people you care about? Are there relationships in your present or past that need to be put to rest so they can stop showing up in your thought life? Have you realized some emotional triggers but not sure what to do next? Are you tired of feeling emotionally overwhelmed? Wouldn't it help to have a place you can go to process how to create healthier expectations? Would it help to have a confidential place to figure out how to work through stress without having to babysit someone else's response? Are you in a life transition?

Are you feeling so overwhelmed and frustrated that you just don't know how to move forward? Are you frustrated that life just doesn’t seem to be moving in the direction you’d like it to go at the moment? Maybe overwhelmed with negative thoughts, patterns, and past experiences? Life happens all over our plans sometimes and that can definitely hinder our progress and impact our daily quality of life. It can be hard to determine how to move forward, where to start, and develop a concrete plan to get there without getting stressed beyond a level that we can manage.

Making the decision to seek counseling can be a tough one for many. Therapy is a process where you can learn, grow, and heal in ways you did not expect. Do you feel you struggle to be your true authentic self in the spaces that you occupy? Finding it hard to create and maintain boundaries with those closest to you? Maybe your own thoughts and feelings of stress and anxiety are hindering you from reaching what you feel is your full potential? My goal, as your therapist, is to help guide you through this process of self-discovery and healing.
