I am currently accepting new clients! Managing life can be challenging! Most people have challenges trusting themselves and others, managing their emotions, finding ways to appropriately respond to challenging situations, dealing with the past, shame, guilt, rejection, etc. Poor boundaries, putting others first, fear of outcomes, and lack of self-trust leads to people-pleasing, perfectionism, self-doubt, hurt feelings, resentment, poor self-esteem, unhealthy relationships, anxiety, depression, etc., ultimately is what leads people to therapy! Most people have not learned how to handle uncomfortable situations in healthy ways that feel comfortable specifically to them. Allow me to guide you with trusting yourself enough to choose you each time regardless of the outcome! When we put ourselves first, we will show up as our best selves!

Many black men were taught that showing their emotions is a sign of weakness when in fact it takes courage and bravery to allow oneself to be vulnerable to express how they truly feel! It takes a brave person to say I want to learn how to be there for my family, I desire to discover how to be the best person I can be, I want to change negative behaviors that push others away, I want to learn how to fix my situation, I need help, etc.

I have the pleasure of working with black men every day and it never gets old seeing them evolve into the person they want to be! I offer individual, family, couples therapy, and parenting. I create a safe space where my clients feel free to be vulnerable as they openly wrestle with raw emotions. I guide my clients toward new skills, challenging their thoughts and behaviors, holding them accountable, and celebrating their success!

I believe in having "real conversations" in a non-threatening way to create healing and self-awareness! There is no failure when you "INTENTIONALLY FOCUS" on change! I have seen my clients change and grow in no time! While some professionals make change seem out of reach, I believe the opposite. Creating the life you want is much closer than you could imagine!
