I’m a black psychologist who is a heterosexual cisgender man. I provide individual psychotherapy for college students, people of color, and adults confronted with a variety of life challenges including depression, anxiety, identity concerns, life transitions, stress management, perfectionism, self-esteem/self-criticism, and family and relationship issues. I particularly like to work with individuals who may experience distress and challenges related to stigma, race, privilege, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic class (i.e., being a minority in predominantly white spaces, social mobility, first generation, low income).
I see therapy as a collaborative effort where we engage in conversations about yourself and your life in order to help you cope, heal, improve, explore, and understand. My style is welcoming, thoughtful, attuned, and engaging, with curiosity and some humor. I value my clients’ differences, strengths, and unique perspectives to events and situations.
In addition to my private practice, I work as a senior staff member at the counseling center at Haverford College. I have over 15 years of clinical experience, having held positions in healthcare systems, college counseling centers, and school systems, serving clients of varied backgrounds and ages. My doctorate is in clinical and school psychology from James Madison University.
