Specialties: LGBTQ+ Mental Health, HIV/AIDS, Depression, Sex (e.g., kink, non-monogamy/polyamory, sex-work)
I am a proud, cisgender gay man, who was born and raised in Suriname with parents of Guyanese descent. My cultural upbringing surrounded norms of the Caribbean, West Indies, and South America. My approach is both objective and nonjudgmental in the hopes of striking a balance in engaging therapeutically with clients. Further, I believe in active-listening through an integrative lens, which allows clients to open, heal, and grow. Co-creating a safe space with the client is the key to developing the authentic self without fear or shame. Specialties that I have include: HIV/AIDS, Anxiety, Depression, and Sex (e.g., kink, non-monogamy/polyamory, sex work). I earned a Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) at New York University, Silver School of Social Work (NYU) and a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biology and a Bachelor of Art (B.A.) in Studio Art at The City College of New York of The City University of New York.
