My Approach to Helping
I have a track record of delivering high-quality services to individuals with a variety of emotional difficulties. I believe each client's voice needs to be heard and their stories validated to allow them to feel safe so the work can begin.
I earned an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Roosevelt University and a PhD from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I am highly experienced in the treatment of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, personality disorders, LGBT challenges, relationship difficulties, and a variety of social challenges facing African American males in the community.
Throughout my career, I have held a variety of clinical and managerial positions with both community-based organizations and private entities. I also hold an academic position with Roosevelt University in the department of Clinical Mental Health Counseling lecturing for their graduate Masters program. I also lend my support to Chicago Hopes For Kids as a member of their executive board of directors.
In therapy, I use a variety of approaches such as Grief Therapy; Family Systems, Strengths-Based, Process Addictions Treatment, CBT, and Mindfulness.
