About Dr. Tea
Welcome to the world of Dr. Harris-Jackson, better known as "Dr. Tea," a dedicated expert in the fields of sex and relationships. Licensed in Florida, DC, and Virginia, Dr. Tea is a highly qualified and compassionate sex and relationship therapist, certified sexuality educator, intimacy & relationship coach, and an integrative mental health provider.
Her path to becoming a sex therapist is an inspiring and motivational journey, which she openly shares in her blog. Dr. Tea's true passion lies in empowering women and individuals in relationships to lead authentic, fulfilling, and liberated lives. With over 25 years of experience in the helping profession, she began her career providing parenting support and therapy to youth and single mothers. During her time at Old Dominion University in Virginia, she extended her support by volunteering as a crisis counselor for sexual assault survivors and offering emotional assistance to individuals and families impacted by HIV, while also tutoring those with English as a second language.
Driven by her commitment to empower individuals, particularly Women of Color, with accurate sexual health information, she pursued and earned her PhD in Human Sexuality from Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania. Her research focused on the role of Religiosity in Black Women's Sexuality.
Since completing her PhD, Dr. Tea has channeled her passion into three primary areas: therapy, education, and service. As the founder of Hope & Serenity Health Services, she established a holistic mental health, intimacy, and sex therapy agency for women. Additionally, she founded Healing Journeys, a wellness agency specializing in transformative retreats for women and individuals in relationships. Dr. Tea draws upon her extensive experience, education, and clinical training to collaborate with her clients in healing pain, trauma, and dissatisfaction, helping them embrace their wholeness, health, and empowerment as sexual beings and individuals in relationships. Dr. Tea employs various therapeutic approaches, including CBT, Narrative, Feminist Theory, and Psychodynamic therapy. She is also a Certified Integrative Mental Health Provider (CIMHP) who operates from a trauma-informed lens and is an affirming Trans, Kink, and Poly-aware therapist.
Education holds a special place in Dr. Tea's heart, and she has spent over a decade teaching and developing courses in various academic programs. As an educator and intimacy and relationship coach, she imparts her knowledge and expertise to students and clients alike. As a Certified Sexuality Educator (CSE), she guides individuals and partners worldwide in identifying and achieving their intimacy and relationship goals, as well as providing valuable supervision and mentorship to aspiring clinicians.
Dr. Tea's commitment to service goes beyond her practice and teaching. Currently serving as a Board member for the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT), she has previously held influential positions on esteemed social justice-related boards and councils, including co-chair for the Council on Social Work Education's Council on Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, and Expression (CSOGIE) and AASECT's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee.
In her personal life, Dr. Tea enjoys exploring international destinations, savoring the finest teas, and seeking out delectable vegan treats. Her passion for her work and dedication to helping others shines through every aspect of her life, making Dr. Tea an exceptional and cherished professional in her field. Whether you're seeking therapeutic support, education, or guidance, Dr. Tea is here to provide comprehensive and compassionate assistance on your journey to empowerment and fulfillment.
