I believe having clarity about the WHY you do, say, and think the way you do begins with denying the narrative that you are too “booked and busy” to peel back those layers of your identity hidden from the world. These are the parts of us that both consciously and unconsciously influence our daily interactions, and keep us conditioned to believe we have to negotiate space rather than command it! Your joy, dreams, and purpose matter, so less pouring from an empty cup and more claiming the life you deserve! I'm Dr. Dominique, a Licensed Psychologist at The Black Girl Doctor, and if any of this resonates with you I'd love to connect!

As a black therapist, my aim is to offer representation in a space where it's needed the most.
*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* Imagine a life where it wasn't a struggle to get out of bed. A life where you feel confident in your own skin. You trust and love yourself for who you are, not who others want you to be. Your relationships are working and you are capable of setting healthy boundaries. Right now, life may not look anything like that. You may feel depressed, anxious, worthless, lost, or even stuck. I'm Kendra, a Licensed Therapist, and I help women who struggle with boundary setting, self-love and relationship issues.

Before sipping TEA, let me introduce myself, my name is Tunisia London, but most people call me Sabrina. I am the owner of TEA of Life Holistic Behavioral Therapy, LLC. I am not your typical therapist; I will meet you where you are and push you to do better. ​I'm down-to-earth and approachable. I may let a potty word or two slip but always provide savage clinical therapy. Although I received lengthy and specific education/training in my role, that doesn't make me any better than you or the "expert" of your life. You're the expert of your life. My training and skills help elicit the change you want.

Please call me Ally! I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience each other as real people. I can promise you that I am as real as it gets! I work with you to help you identify your desires and empower you to make those positive changes in your life. I recognize that making the choice to seek help can be difficult, so I use an approach that is compassionate, direct, and non-judgmental to help create an environment where you feel supported in your counseling journey.

What type of Jacksonville mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Jacksonville?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
