The mission of Black Male Therapists of Charlotte, Inc is to provide a communal, organizing, and executing, space for licensed, and aspiring to be licensed men of color who are passionate about mental wellness within the Greater Charlotte community.
The vision of Black Male Therapists of Charlotte, Inc. is to enhance access to wellness resources through the lens of mental health.
A. Maurice Harvey is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker primarily serving the Greater Charlotte community. In 2008, he earned his Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree from UNC-Charlotte. In 2013, he graduated from Winthrop University with a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree, with a focus on empowerment across systems. He began his journey in human services through group homes in 2006, quickly transitioning to community mental health agencies after graduating with his BSW (serving at-risk and low-income populations), transitional housing programs, and spent approximately 2 years as a Mecklenburg County Social Worker within their Community Support Services division where he worked with recently housed, formally, chronically, homeless individuals in a single occupancy residential setting formally known as Moore Place.
Maurice’s most recent focus-work has been with people who are transitioning through adult-life situations, informally coined “adulting”, as well as engaging in couples’ work. Currently, he owns and operates Choose B.E.T.T.E.R. 4 U, PLLC where he engages in speaking opportunities and consulting through the lens of professional and clinical development.
In the fall of 2022, Maurice founded Black Male Therapists of Charlotte, Inc (BMTCLT).
BMTCLT began as a thought in 2012 as Maurice sought out a peer network with the hopes of impacting the community from a multisystemic approach, leading the efforts with Licensed Providers. With limited success of connecting with other Black male therapists he continued to make connections within the Charlotte community. It was not until he nurtured his group practice, welcoming other Black male clinicians to connect in the common work of individual and community mental health, that the thought of BMTCLT began to gain traction. The idea rebirthed into an initial group of Black male therapists that met a handful of times, and within a matter of months formalized Black Male Therapists of Charlotte, Inc.
