Headway

Marcus

I am a Black gay man, a US Army veteran, and a New York State licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). I have an eclectic educational and professional background including a BFA in dance and a masters degree in social work from the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.


I was drawn to social work due to an interest in social justice principles. I am committed to anti-racism and anti-oppression, sex positivity, trauma-informed care, and compassionate care for my clients.


I am also a Gestalt-trained psychotherapist. Gestalt psychotherapy is a mindful, present-focused therapy that seeks to bring awareness to thoughts and beliefs that impact what you do and how you feel. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) in my practice.


My practice, and mission, is to provide (and co-create with you) a safe, non-judgmental and accepting environment to address barriers to your health and happiness.

In my social work career, I have worked with diverse populations. Veterans returning to college. Homeless youth. The LGBTQ+ community. POC in community-based organizations, and a wide range of clients in one of New York City’s historical LGBTQ outpatient health centers.


I am happy to schedule a free telephone or tele-therapy (video) consultation.

I look forward to speaking with you.
