Professional statement

Relationship Expert Dr. Sue Johnson quotes that “Love never dies of a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source, it dies of blindness and errors and betrayals... it dies because of weariness and constant withering". Are you tired? Stuck in your relationship? Get help today. I personally champion affordable and high-quality mental health care. My session rate starts at $99 (Most are $100+). I am available most Evenings and only doing virtual sessions at this time. My ultimate goal is to empower you with the appropriate coping skills to help you with your personal and relational issues.

I counsel individuals and also teach counseling at UALR. I have had a counseling practice in the United Kingdom addressing a variety of clinical issues and am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor in Nevada/Texas & Arkansas. Being married for 30 years with two children in their twenties, I can bring my life experiences to your relationship/life situation.

My mother is English and my father is African American. My wife is of Puerto Rican decent which makes life very colorful. I have visited or lived in over 20+ countries which makes me well versed with different cultures. Note: Session could be free, check with your H.R.. I am with all the major EAP counseling services with New Directions and Compsych in NV, TX and AR. As of 10/1/23, I will be with Cigna, Optum/Empire and Aetna in AR, TX and NV.


Message to clients

As a therapist of color, it gives a unique perspective because of my real-life experiences. I have been homeless, overcome alcoholism, and grew up in the UK in the 70s with interracial parents (African American and English White). Because of my upbringing, I have witnessed extreme racism and abandonment. Though painful, I would not have changed a thing because this suffering has molded me into an empathetic person who can relate to my client's narrative. I sit here today as an overcomer with two children in their 20s and a wife of 30+ years. If you want a therapist that has practical real-life solutions and has created healthy boundaries for the generational dysfunction in his family, please look me up for anxiety, stress, couple, and anger management therapy.
