Be Well Sis: The Podcast

Jul 9, 2021


Guest Feature: Dr. Tameka Jackson is a licensed psychologist who maintains a private practice in Sacramento. Dr. Jackson has been in private practice for 8 years and has over 15 years of experience in the mental health field.   Within her practice, she provides individual and couples therapy to adolescent and adult clients. Dr. Jackson also works part-time as a therapist at Folsom Lake College. Recognizing the need for greater attention to the mental health needs of the Black community specifically, Dr. Jackson remains active in lending her time accordingly. In this vein, she is a volunteer for Safe Black Space, a local nonprofit in Sacramento that provides monthly racial healing circles. Additionally, she is trained as an Emotional Emancipation Circle (EEC) facilitator. Most recently, Dr. Jackson founded CORE Love, a wellness-based program for Black women. CORE Love features workshops and support groups that promote radical self-love, self-compassion, and authentic living. Outside of her professional life, Dr. Jackson is happily married and is the mother of a beautiful 8-year-old daughter. She maintains grounding through prayer, meditation, practicing gratitude, and spending time in nature.


In this episode, we discussed:

  • The meaning of radical self-love and radical self-acceptance,
  • The truth of who we are,
  • Superwoman complex vs being strong as a trait,
  • The strength in vulnerability,
  • Self-compassion and forgiveness,
  • Actionable ways to cultivate self-love if we’re out of practice,
  • And much, much more.
