I provide culturally competent care and use a Strength Based Approach when working with clients. I also specialize in helping African American males deal with oppressive systems and obstacles.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I’m our first session together you can expect a getting to know you session. We will learn about you and what you feel best will assist with achieving growth and success. We will also discuss goals and expectations.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having worked with a variety of people from all walks of life in various settings for the past seven years , I am great at meeting people where they are to assist them with moving forward in achieving growth.
