About My Clients

I specialized in anxiety, depression, personality disorders, severe mental illness, addictive behaviors, major life changes, low self-esteem, relationship dysfunction, and emerging adult/adult identity development. issues. I have been providing counseling services for more than 10 years. My focus is on the BIPOC community and I am very happy to say, as a seasoned Black man, I am able to offer unique insight and offer a mature perspective on life's struggles.

My Background and Approach

I'm not just a friendly ear and sounding board, but rather someone who helps you change things like negative thought patterns, problematic behaviors, and maladaptive coping skills. I will work with you to recognize these issues and develop techniques for helping them. I understand that therapy can be difficult, but I also know there is a way out of your struggles. No one blames you for the difficulties you've had to face and I want to help make it easier for you from here on out. I'm not just a friend who will help you cope with your emotions at the time - I'll help you to create better, healthier ways of dealing with scenarios that have been difficult for you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My goal in therapy is to help people to achieve optimal mental health, increased vitality, emotional well-being, and personal empowerment. Personal empowerment means taking control of your life. It is about more than just feeling motivated, though motivation is an important element of personal empowerment. True personal empowerment requires the identifying of what you want from life, the setting of meaningful goals, and then taking action to achieve those goals in order to have a greater impact on the world around you. Far too often we overreact and we are unnerved by undesirable and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings; in turn, we avoid situations in which those undesirable and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings are invoked. In essence, we are taken hostage by our emotions and rendered helpless in the pursuit of purpose.
