Taisha Caldwell-Harvey, PhD.
Hi, I'm Dr. Tai! I am a wife, daughter, sister, auntie, mentor, teacher, social justice advocate, lover of life, and licensed psychologist. My formal education includes a BA from Spelman College, and an MA and PhD in Counseling Psychology from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I completed both a pre and postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California Irvine and I have over 12 years of professional experience which includes 5 years of clinical practice plus 7 years of mental health consulting in higher education.
Clinically, I specialize in working with professionals struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, grief, and career and relationship issues.
I was born and raised in the beautiful California Bay Area but have also lived in Southern California and both the Midwest and the South. In terms of preference, its a toss up between SoCal and NorCal, but the west coast is definitely where I belong! I value family, close friendships, and am a total romantic at heart.
I started The Black Girl Doctor because I truly believe that Black women deserve joy -- especially those of us who are called, and who answer that call, to do great things! Our desire to be excellent and share our gifts with the world should not rob us of experiencing all the love, money, and happiness that life has to offer. I find joy in using myself as a tool to heal, encourage, and inspire others... it's simply my purpose.
