Hi. My name is Brandon and firstly I want to congratulate you for already taking the initial steps to self-exploration.
My pronouns are He/They, and I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in New York. I was born and raised in Queens, NY. I am, above all else proud to be Black, Queer, and first-generation Haitian-American.
I attended SUNY Suffolk Community College where, after attempting to earn a Biology degree, I came to learn very early on that I was much more passionate at the prospect of helping individuals much like yourself than I was at science or math. I transferred to Molloy University in 2017 where I earned my Bachelor's in Social Work. I then went on to earn my Master's in Social Work in 2020 from Fordham University's School of Social Work.
Graduating during the height of the pandemic gave me a lot of options in terms of what to do with my time and career. I earned my New York State Social Work license that same year and have dedicated my time to learning, listening, and understanding life's difficulties as we all experience them. Each person I've worked with has informed my perspective time and time again and I use much of that knowledge to offer a safe, comforting, and encouraging space to those I work alongside.
I believe everyone deserves to have their emotions identified, listened to, and respected and that looks and feels differently to everyone. We must be open to learning and receptive to the perceptions of others, especially for individuals who experience anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, complex trauma, substance abuse disorders, schizophrenic disorders, grief, and loss, and so much more.
I enjoy using music, video games, anime, movies, and any other creative outlets to express what is sometimes hard to explain. There can always be a better ending where there was a difficult beginning. Thank you for allowing me to join your journey.
