Your Life Empowered
I am an African American male therapist who is culturally sensitive to not only the needs of the black community but other communities including individuals within the lesbian, gay, bi, transgender and queer communities. In addition, I am a former collegiate athlete and can relate to the stressors and challenges that student athletes face. I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#94760), employed and supervised by Jim Palato, LMFT (#444613). I completed my Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Hope International University.
NO matter how you choose to identify yourself, I provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and encouraging environment to explore your past and present life. My aim is to empower you to heal old and current wounds and author a new future for yourself. This work can transform your relationship with self, significant other, family, friends, and your professional relationships.
I have experience working with adults, adolescents, couples and families. In my training, I was afforded the opportunity to become certified in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) to assist in trauma recovery and treat other psychological issues. I am also certified through Prepare and Enrich which is a program that aims to help prepare couples for marriage as well as help strengthen the relationships of couples currently married or in a committed relationship.
