About Me

I pride myself on meeting my client where they are emotionally. My down-to-earth conversation style applies to all walks of life. I believe therapy can be a conversation between friends with affirmation when needed, a direct discussion, or simply a light sense of humor. Life is full of moments.

This was my first experience ever seeking outside help and I was extremely nervous! I didn’t want to be judged for the thoughts I was having and the things I was feeling but Dr. Skinner really made me feel heard and he wants to help find the source of what’s been going on! I highly recommend him to anyone!

Talking with Rashad is as easy as talking to a good friend. He listens deeply and genuinely cares about I say, and always responds with the utmost positivity. Talking with him as my therapist almost doubles as having a life coach...I definitely recommend him!

Rashad is truly the best therapist I’ve ever had. Speaking with him through chat and video, he always ends up bringing my anxiety and panic down and life feels freeing and effortless again. It’s so easy to speak to him & he has a great personality. He never gets overwhelmed & he definitely always knows what he’s talking about! He’s one of the best!

Rashad is incredible! He’s such a gift to this world and I am blessed to be working with him. If you need a professional, kind, funny and enlightening counselor he’s the person you need to work with. I’ve been on this journey with him for a short time period and he’s already helped me tremendously. Do yourself a favor and link with him! You won’t regret it!

The sessions have been very helpful. They feel short and compact since there are only 30 minute time slots available. You will have to get to your point quickly. Rashad, does make the most out of the time given.

Written by T.A. on Jun 27, 2020 after counseling with Rashad for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Dr. Skinner was very easy to talk to even though this was only my second counseling session in my life. The first one wasn’t so successful which left me even more skeptical but Dr. Skinner was so understanding, insightful and kind that he really helped me open up and better understand my difficult relationship with my mom in just the 2 weeks that we’ve been exchanging messages. He uses situational examples of every day life that helped me to understand the conflict I was feeling and why I may be feeling it, which inspired me to stop talking about my mom and just start talking to my mom. Thank you, Dr. Skinner for your time, your patience and your genuine willingness to understand and help me work through my issues.
