My Story

I’ve spent the past decade working as a Psychologist, being an active member of the New York community, studying race, vulnerability, stress, and coping. I’m the author of two books: The Steps I Took (2013) and Letters to the Black Community (Hardcopy 2012; E-book, 2018). My most recent book was released in 2013 and is the culmination of years of work and study on how best for young people today to achieve greatest potential in education, leadership, and community involvement. 

I’m also an Associate Professor of Psychology via the City University New York (CUNY). I teach Abnormal and General Psychology, along with mentoring many students of color teaching mindfulness of the differences between obtaining a job versus a career.

How I Can Help


Individual therapy focuses on the emotional experience of your life. We examine how relationships, all your relationships - to self, family, friends, culture, environment, etc. - and how they have worked toward shaping who you are.


It is expected that your personal life stays out of your professional life, but that isn't reality. Sometimes the two are in conflict or struggles in either overwhelm the other. By gaining clarity on the conflicts, issues, and unique work situation each of us is in, we can make choices that feel right and don't come from a place of anger or anxiety. 


Do you find it challenging to communicate with your partner? Are you struggling to be intimate? Does even the smallest conversation trigger both of you into an argument? If so, couples counseling may be for you.
