Therapist | Trainer | Speaker | Author
Some believe psychotherapy is an art. And like creative art, the art of therapy requires continuous practice and study for the psychologist to master advanced skills. Yet, it is the heart of the therapist, that is, his personal warmth and concern for people that is the key to making therapy effective.
Welcome to my website. I offer a variety of psychological services. As you are reviewing my site, I invite you to keep in mind that I am committed to the path of positive change and development in people’s lives.
I am a good listener, and over the years I have integrated a number of scientifically-based theories into how I think and work including psychoanalytic, family systems, cognitive behavioral, and emotionally focused therapy.
Emotionally Focused Therapy with African American Couples
Love Heals is an essential guide that integrates emotionally focused therapy (EFT) with cultural humility. It provides a pathbreaking, evidence-based model of a couple’s work that reinforces the bond between partners in the face of race-based distress.
Guillory explores and brings a deep understanding of the legacy of racial trauma, and the cultural strengths of African American couples by using real-life case studies. The chapters in the book focus on several key clinical issues in the field, such as communication problems, anxiety, infidelity, depression, and porn. Each case study is enhanced by consultation with EFT master therapist Sue Johnson.
The book is an essential text for students and mental health professionals looking to provide culturally competent therapeutic interventions. It will also appeal to psychologists, mental health workers, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and religious leaders.

A Rewarding Partnership
Psychotherapy is clearly based on clinical science, but is only effective when there is a positive working relationship between the two people involved – therapist and client. I welcome and encourage you to talk about the meaningful experiences of your life while I will deeply respect how difficult that might be at times.
