Profile
“I have always been interested in behavior and motivation and noticed the lack of folks who look like me, a Black man.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
While I have been interested in psychology for years, I took a somewhat circuitous route, working in various types of retail until a longer career in higher academia led to counseling. I have always been interested in behavior and motivation and noticed the lack of folks who look like me, a Black man. I have provided counseling in universities, lower level schools, and clinics. These experiences bolstered my feeling that more marginalized counselors are a necessity in this field.
What should someone know about working with you?
As a counselor, I am more focused on the symptoms a client is experiencing instead of defining them by a diagnosis; each person is unique no matter how much they fit a criteria.
