ABOUT ME

I’ve worked for over twenty years as a therapist in multiple settings, from private practice to drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, to working with incarcerated individuals. I am an expert at meeting people where they are and using our relationship to support and guide their needs.  I focus on healing, regardless of the modality and with as little dogma and unnecessary ritual as possible.

 

My goal is for you to be whole.

EXPERIENCE

My training is clinical, spiritual, and practical. I work with talk therapy, meditation, breathing, sound, and sacred plant medicine.  I offer what I believe to be appropriate for the situation for you to choose from and apply to your life as you see fit.

 

I am an African-American cis Male who works to create a Safe place for ALL bodies, capacities, genders, expressions of love. I believe in families of Choice and sacredness of trust.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What do your sessions look like?

They vary.  Sometimes it looks like a traditional therapy session.  Sometimes they involve a walk. For some people work can only happen with homework assignments and regular check-ins.  For others, it might mean getting into nature.  I bring my tools to my clients, not the other way around.  I will meet you where you are. They vary.
