About Dr. RJ

Dr. RJ is intentional about merging science with everyday life and believes that there should be a psychologist in EVERY decision making room. “Mental health should always be taken into consideration whether the discussion is about pop culture, religion, politics, parenting, education policy, or community involvement. I can’t think of a topic where mental health should not have a front row seat”. Dr. RJ provides practical survival skills tailored to women of color who are stuck in the vicious superwoman cycle.
