About me

Even strong men struggle. And most times we struggle in silence and suffer alone because we have not been taught the language of emotion. So we retreat into a cave of isolation to process the complexities of life and get lost in that darkness because we do not know how to ask for help. And when a man cannot find the answers to life's dilemnas, he loses his sense of worth and falls into addictions to medicate that depression. And the whole family suffers because he is present but not engaged. And that becomes the generational legacy we leave for our children.

As an African American male who grew up in the inner city, a retired law enforcement official and now as a licensed professional counselor, i possess a unique set of interpersonal and clincial skills designed to hold the room long enough for men and teen boys to drop their shields and speak their truths without fear of judgement or criticism. And there in that dark place, we sit side by side and have the hard conversations necessary to rebuild broken men. There's no shame in being broken. Hemingway said it best. We all broken but that's how the light gets in. Using evidence based modalities and some good ole fashioned mantalk passed down by my grandfather, I assist clients with finding the broken pieces of themselves and creating a beautiful mosaic of self - love and acceptance.
