Professional statement

Davante Jennings (he/him), AMFT #132846, APCC #11663 is a dedicated therapist specializing in supporting the unique needs of the LGBTQIA+ community, particularly queer individuals and couples navigating challenges like trauma, relationship complexities, loss and grief, and abandonment. Drawing upon a foundation of eight years of experience and a commitment to cultural competency, I foster a welcoming and affirming space where clients can explore their identities, process challenges, and build resilience.

Men's Issues: With expertise in men's mental health, Davante creates a safe space for queer men to explore masculinity, societal expectations, and navigate emotions in a traditionally stoic environment. He empowers them to build self-compassion and healthy coping mechanisms.

Queer Individuals: Davante fosters a welcoming space for LGBTQIA+ individuals to explore their identities, process challenges like discrimination and coming-out journeys, and navigate societal pressures. He guides them towards self-discovery, self-compassion, and healthy coping mechanisms.

Couples Therapy: For queer couples, Davante offers a supportive environment to explore dynamics, communication challenges, and strengthen their bond. He utilizes diversity-affirming approaches to address unique LGBTQIA+ experiences and promote fulfilling relationships.

Trauma-Informed Care: Recognizing the prevalence of trauma within the LGBTQIA+ community, Davante employs trauma-informed approaches that prioritize safety, empowerment, and client-centered care; creating a space where clients feel supported and understood, fostering healing and growth.

Relational Therapy: Understanding the interconnectedness of individuals, their relationships, and ultimately how they navigate the world, Davante incorporates relational approaches into his work. This approach allows for exploring how past experiences and family dynamics impact current relationships, promoting healthier connections and communication patterns.

Acceptance: None of this matters without acceptance-based techniques helping clients to cultivate self-awareness, manage difficult emotions, and develop acceptance for themselves and their experiences.
