Now Accepting New Clients!
Anthony counsels with the understanding that relationships are where we are formed, harmed, and ultimately healed. When we experience harm, life can become fraught with pain, heartache, and despair. We experience hopelessness and confusion and may even question whether goodness is real. Anthony’s hope is for counseling to be a place where hope and goodness are rediscovered and recultivated together through a sense of shared humanity. Counseling can be the journey we embark on together towards healing and regaining our sense of wholeness.
Anthony was born into a biracial household and grew up all over the world in a military family. He is fascinated by culture and has discovered that the things that seemingly make us different are somehow the very things that can also serve to connect us. Before becoming a counselor, Anthony spent 14 years working in the architecture industry. He was also a soldier in the Florida Army National Guard for 6 years. After participating in a recovery ministry in 2012, Anthony became intrigued with the idea of going back to school to become a counselor. Although working in architecture and serving in the Army provided unique and challenging experiences that he will always cherish, he wondered if his calling could be elsewhere. After attending an Allender Story Workshop in 2018, he decided to shift his career path and become a mental health counselor. Anthony graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary in 2021 with his master’s degree in mental health counseling.
Anthony is interested in working with individuals, couples, and families from various backgrounds and experiences. He is passionate about caring for people and engaging the particular ways they struggle, including areas like addiction, sexuality, and trauma, in both individual and group counseling settings. As a trained Prepare/Enrich facilitator, he hopes to work with couples in their efforts to grow and thrive together. In 2021 he participated in a Bethesda Workshop as a therapist observer in order to better help those struggling with unwanted sexual behavior and/or sexual addiction.
When he is not counseling, Anthony enjoys exploring new places and searching for new culinary experiences with his wife, Tatianna. He is passionate about design and anything that involves a process of making, like cooking, construction, or poetry. Anthony also enjoys physical fitness and trying to play guitar.
