Hi! I'm Brezhnev or Coach B - a current Master of Social Work student at Capella University, former college athlete, husband, father, and mentor. 


It is my goal to help people reach their goals and score those internal 'touchdowns' in life. Let me help you get back in the game!


I have a background in business and sales. However, after being successful with that career I decided to switch things up and pursue my true passion! I have always volunteered and provided my own version of social work to the community. Honestly, I love talking and I love listening to people - so I went back to school to do just that!  

At The Boutique, I started off by leading the Coaching & Mentoring program to men, women, young adults, and teens in the Tampa and neighboring areas.


However, as my training has progressed, I now also offering formal therapy services at The Boutique as the practice's MSW student intern in partnership with Capella University. 

I understand there is a stigma with receiving help, especially as a Black man. I am here to listen and offer support as you step into the role of a  'Cycle Breaker'. It's a badge I personally wear proudly!
