Our therapists complete the Hurdle Cultural Responsiveness Training, which equips them with the skills needed to effectively address issues of race, ethnicity, class, and culture.
Hurdle uses a scientifically validated tool to measure cultural responsiveness and then provide education and coaching to improve the cultural humility of therapists. Research shows that therapists whose patients perceive them as having cultural humility deliver improved therapy outcomes.
Meet Hurdle's growing network of culturally competent therapists.
I’m a licensed professional counselor based out of Washington, D.C. I have experience working with teens, and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship issues, transitions, emotional regulation, grief and loss, and stress management. My background in life coaching and wellness allows me to bring a holistic and grounded approach to therapy.
As an African American male in today’s society I recognize the importance that culture has in mental health treatment. Hurdle aligns with my philosophy of providing culturally intentional therapy which helps clients break down their defenses and engage in treatment.
Over the years, I have developed a unique combination of person-centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps clients feel more in control through having a deeper understanding of the underlying motivations that affect their thoughts, feelings, and actions. I specialize in helping clients gain more self-confidence, a stronger sense of identity, build healthier relationships, and to trust his or her own decisions.
