“I love what I do. I love being able to help those in either need or those seeking help to better their lives. I believe each individual is unique and created with a purpose. I see my goal as helping each individual discover his or her purpose while embracing his or her individuality. I have learned to utilize my experiences as an African-American, husband, father, social worker, soccer coach and friend in assisting each individual I work with to become all their meant to be.”
