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


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! 

Currently I offer mentorship and coaching services to teens, young adults, men and women in the Tampa and neighboring areas.


The purpose of mentorship is to support and encourage the mentee to manage their own challenges so they can maximize their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance, and overall become the person they want to be. Mentoring and coaching is not formal counseling. 

If you've been in therapy and are looking for someone to help hold you accountable to keep you at a place of maintenance, coaching would be perfect for you! You already have the tools you need, but sometimes we need a bit of help to remind ourselves that we are equipped to get through our 'mess'! 

Are you not ready to take the plunge into formal counseling yet? Perhaps exploring coaching and mentoring would be a good start for you. 

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!
