Breakups or Blessings in Disguise

The ramifications of a breakup can impact all of those around you. This could be your family, friends, kids, co-workers and more if they’ve built a bond with your former partner. Little things, like where will you go for the holidays, how the yard is going to get cut and who will make sure the […]

What Triggers You?

Some say that triggers aren’t a real thing. I tend to disagree. Most of us can recall a song from the past that was dedicated to a relationship and was “our song.” It could be twenty years down the road and when that song comes on and you’re singing along with it, the thoughts and […]

Dealing With the Fear of Rejection

We all have a fear of rejection. Who really wants someone to say “no” to them? It hurts and can leave us feeling devalued and worthless. Regardless of the “no,” we all inherently have value. In today’s society, we can be rejected or experience “perceived rejection” in a myriad of ways. With technology, if we […]

I Said I Do, Now What?

When people typically think marriage, they see this as happily ever after. Most don’t realize or focus on the work, compromise or difficulties that come along with the “I Do’s.” You are two people, with two different backgrounds and sometimes varying outlooks on life. There will be things that still need to be worked on […]

Letting Go

As a licensed mental health clinician and a black man, I have experienced, noticed, and practiced holding on to people, places, things, feelings, behaviors and thoughts that were hindrances to living a better life.

To Think Or To Overthink, That Is The Question

There are some who like to “think things over,” and then there are others who “overthink.” If you fall into the overthinking camp, unfortunately, you do yourself a disservice. Overthinking does not serve anyone well as it causes one to think about something too much and for too long, leaving you exhausted and in a […]

Fear of Failure

If you were to ask me what my biggest fears were, I would put the fear of failure at the top for many reasons including who am I letting down, who is watching me fail, what will people think of me, nobody likes a failure, I will be treated poorly, I will have no confidence, […]

Stress Management for Black Men in the Workplace

Your boss is piling on more work than you can handle, pressuring you to meet deadlines for projects that you were not trained to do. You weren’t provided with the right tools, resources or support, but they still expect you to give top quality performance. This is a recipe for disaster! If this isn’t bad […]

3 Signs You’re in a Healthy Relationship

In today’s society, we see all types of couples on social media and television; and most of us are holding them to the standards of #Relationshipgoals. Some have been together for a while and others for two hot seconds. We have a tendency to praise these unions or relationships because of the status of the […]

Why Therapy?

Participating in therapy requires us to be still within ourselves. For black and brown men, stillness within ourselves can be a foreign experience and it has very little to do with us. Stillness “allows” our mind to take a break or as I’ve experienced (as have my patients) time away from being distracted from how we […]

What are Boundaries?

What are boundaries in relationships? Boundaries are the measure by which we allow others to engage with us. If you have weak boundaries, you will likely feel that people are taking advantage of you and treating you in ways that make you uncomfortable. If this is you, I suggest that It may be time to […]
