J. L. “Archie” II, MFT trainee
Languages Spoken: English
Hi, my name is Archie, and I applaud you for taking the first steps on your journey in the pursuit of happiness.
I am an MFT Trainee earning my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Often, individuals are overwhelmed with emotions and feelings that cause their lives to be out of balance psychologically and spiritually. My goal is to provide individuals, families, and groups I serve with the ability to recognize their internal imbalance and take action to create homeostasis within personal lives, family systems, and social interactions.
As an African-American man from the South, I hope to dismantle the stigma associated with mental health and create a safe space for all individuals who could benefit from therapy. Therapy can be intimidating and uncomfortable at times, but I pride myself on creating a supportive, transformative, and natural experience while assisting my clients in acquiring the tools needed to better support their overall well-being.
Life happens to all of us. The ability to adapt effectively is key. Oftentimes we just need some assistance getting back on track and that’s where I come in. I have served as a counselor and Advisor in various public and private organizations for over 15 years. As a therapist, I aspire to create a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
I will serve the role of your accountability partner, and we cultivate pathways to insight, growth, and positive change. But the steering wheel is always in your hands. If you’re ready, then let’s get going!
