For the last decade, he worked as a manager in the grocery industry. During this time, he co-founded a summer camp for Queer and Trans youth from the South, served on the board of directors for the LGBTQ Center of Durham, and facilitated a support group for Trans and Gender Non-Conforming people at the UNC-Chapel Hill LGBTQ Center.

Davis sees clients in our Cary office and via telehealth.

 

Work Philosophy

Davis strives  to collaborate with clients to meet their goals in an encouraging, empathetic environment, and he believes there is no room for judgment in therapeutic spaces.

Davis identifies as a Queer, Trans, Southerner from a working-class background. He uses humor, sincerity, reflection, and motivational interviewing skills to engage with clients. He holds a deep belief that there is always something we can laugh about even when we are struggling, and views laughter as a tool of healing and connection.

Davis has personally benefited from years of therapy himself, and this is a primary reason he decided to become a therapist. He is interested in working with people of all identities to support them on their individual journeys, and he is affirming of and knowledgeable about LGBTQIA+ experiences and relationships as well as polyamorous and other ”non-traditional” relationships.

Personal Interests

In his personal time, Davis is interested in listening to podcasts, spending time alone, reading, journaling, and watching reality television.
