I'm a human, just like you - greatness, flaws, and all. I believe in hope, healing, connection, 1/2 price shakes at Sonic, X-Men, and anime.

About My Clients

I serve all kind of clients. I've worked with all types of people. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, (not trans yet,) queer, male, female, Satanist, Atheist, Agnostic, Deist, Christian, veteran, law enforcement, fire fighter, paramedic, doula, signle, married, divorced, separated, open relationship, depression, anxiety, OCD, sex addiction, abuse (child, adult, physical, emotional/psychological, sexual), addiction (from tobacco to IV opiate use), PTSD (my specialty), and 13 years old to 74 years old, etc.

My Background and Approach

I'm hardworking. I'm the first in my family to get my bachelor's degree, master's degree, and highest level of professional licensure for social work in Mississippi (LCSW). I've also recently received my Supervisory license so I can teach, advise, mold, and infect (with good, I hope) other social workers looking to level up. I've worked in community mental health, residential treatment programs, intensive outpatient programs (directed an adolescent and adult psychiatric), homeless veteran outreach, youth pastor of a multicultural group including young people identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans. I pull from many different therapy modalities. Ultimately, all the evidence says the therapeutic relationship is the most effective intervention for healing and change. I connect and create safety like a champ. I specialize in the use of EMDR therapy and am in the process of being certified. Upon achievement, I will be the only male certified in EMDR in the central Mississippi area.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My faith uses the scripture, "rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep." Pretty much, I base my personal, professional, and therapeutic relationships off of this. I also really value fun and humor, authenticity, culture, and dogs. I didn't use to love dogs, but my wife taught me how to open my heart to our fur babies: Harley (RIP) and Finley (the bestest goldendoodle ever!). I also base a huge amount of my personal philosophy on the idea that "it's a problem, if it causes a problem." This helps me a hold a non-judgmental stance on a myriad of contentious issues. I have and continue to wrestle with my own despression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and addiction tendencies because I'm human. I'm not ashamed of my past or current mental state and neither should anyone else. I want to partner with individuals in achieving a life and state of being that s/he wants to have. Factoid: I studied classical singing for 7 years and was the drum major in band. #nerd
