Managing life can be challenging! Most people have challenges with trusting themselves and others, managing their emotions, finding ways to appropriately respond to difficult situations, dealing with the past, shame, guilt, rejection, etc.

I find that most people want to change but typically have no idea how to start or maintain the process. "What if" questions tend to navigate their decision-making causing fear and anxiety, paralyzing their progress, and leaving them hopeless without even trying!

There has always been a stigma associated with black people in general attending therapy, especially in black families. Growing up I heard family members and people in the community say negative things regarding mental health therapy, but they were wrong.

Many black men were taught as small children that feeling and showing emotions are a sign that they are weak, when in fact it takes courage and bravery to allow oneself to be vulnerable to express needing assistance with difficult challenges life throws at them. It takes a brave and courageous person to say I want to be there for my family but I do not know how to, I want to be the best person I can be but I don't know where to start, I fear losing those I love and I want to learn how to fix my situation, etc.

I have experience working with black men in individual, couples, family, and parenting settings. I create a safe space where my clients feel free and vulnerable, as they openly wrestle with raw emotions. I guide my clients toward new skills, challenging their thoughts and behaviors, as well as 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 "INTENTIONALLYFOCUS" 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 so much closer than you could ever imagine!
