Insurance Note: If you have health insurance that I do not accept, I highly recommend contacting your provider to confirm whether or not you have out of network mental health coverage. If you do, I will gladly provide you with an electronic statement, also known as a superbill, that you can submit to your insurance agency to request potential reimbursement. By submitting the superbill along with your request for reimbursement, your health insurance provider may be willing to reimburse you for all, or a portion, of what you pay for out of pocket while in therapy.

Dear black man, I see you! Showing up in this world despite dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, imposter syndrome, and low self esteem. Consistently expected to show up displaying leadership, strength, and vitality while not having a place to work through your insecurities, fears, pain, and sorrows. This has gone on for far too long and now you feel like you’re in dire need of support. And that’s what I’m here to do.

I’m here to listen, encourage, support, and validate you along your journey to healing, achieving mental wellness, and becoming the best version of yourself. You deserve that!

My goal in therapy is to provide you with a space where you feel comfortable showing up fully as your true self. A space that is free from judgement or prejudice. A space where you can vent, unpack, process your feelings, and even cry without feeling like you’re being judged as less of a man. A space where you can speak freely, knowing that your therapist already has an understanding of your culture without you having to over-explain every little thing to them.

If you resonate with what you’ve read so far, then you’ve come to the right place!
