My approach to counseling is grounded in empathy, active listening, and a client-centered perspective. I am dedicated to give you a safe and non-judgmental environment where you can freely express yourself and feel truly heard and understood. Building a relationship of trust and respect with you is of utmost importance to me. Recognizing that each individual is unique, I actively seek to understand your specific challenges, perspectives, and personal experiences. Your journey is at the center of our counseling sessions, and I will assist you in exploring different perspectives, identifying healthy coping strategies, and making informed decisions. Together, we will navigate the complexities of your situation, empowering you to take charge of your own growth and well-being. Some of you may be going through your darkest hours and in this difficult and lonely journey, I am here to support you. I offer guidance, encouragement, a compassionate presence and take you through evidence-based psychotherapy sessions to address the root of your issues. It is my sincere commitment to walk alongside you on your path towards healing, transformation, and the pursuit of a more fulfilling life. Remember, you are not alone, and I am here to support you every step of the way.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Over 15 years ago, I endured the darkest seasons of my life. I found myself in a place of profound loneliness, struggling to find someone who truly understood the pain I was going through. It was during this time that my world shattered with the sudden and tragic loss of my closest brother to homicide. His death broke something deep inside me, setting off a chain reaction of depression and mental torment.

As my emotional state deteriorated, my professional and financial life suffered as well. The downward spiral led to the loss of my high-paying job, leaving me in a state of despair. It is impossible to put into words the immense darkness that enveloped me during this period, as my entire world crumbled along with my shattered mind. Sleep eluded me, and I felt utterly helpless in my desperate circumstances.

Though ending my own life may have seemed like a way out, I had a wife and three beautiful children who depended on me for their livelihood and future. Thus, instead of succumbing to despair, I embarked on a personal journey of seeking help. The path to healing was arduous and lengthy, and it was during this journey that I discovered the true essence of friendship and support, as those who stood by me in my darkest hour revealed themselves.

For over a decade, I dedicated myself to my own healing process, gradually rebuilding my life and reclaiming my sense of self. Throughout this challenging period, I gained invaluable lessons and experienced tremendous personal growth.
Counseling is my passion that burns within my heart. My own experiences of overcoming darkness and learning to thrive have allowed me to empathize deeply with those who are currently navigating their own darkest journeys. Having emerged from my own healing journey with gratitude for the lessons I learned, I am compelled to give back and offer support to others who are currently in the midst of their struggles.

Now that I am healed and well, I am profoundly grateful to God for everything I went through. If I could offer even a fraction of my life experience to help you in your darkest moments, it would bring immeasurable joy to my heart to see you healed and transformed.
