2013 Black Excellence: Educator of the Year Award for teaching at the Community College of Denver as a Psychology Professor and the 2016 My Brother’s Keeper Award because of my curriculum development of the Black Male Initiative Summit.

I firmly believe that autonomy is a great tool when it comes to addressing trauma and the ability to sit with discomfort in order to grow.  The goal of the therapeutic process is to heal and not fix problems because it takes strength to embrace the shadow work and the posttraumatic events of life.  I enjoy using Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and Motivational Interviewing Therapy to build rapport and do compassionate listening to have evolving ways to engage triggers and self-exploration. Inner Self and Wisdom, LLC is a private therapy practice that provides counseling/therapy as well as educational resources that foster professional, personal and relationship growth and development through intervention, motivation and mindfulness, emotional and social wellness.
