I am Dr. Angela L. Harris, best known as “Doc Sirrah” on my social media handles. I am currently an Assistant Dean of Students at a small private liberal arts college. I have over 13 years of experience working in higher education in a variety of student life areas such as Diversity and Inclusion, Residence Life, Career Services, and Judicial Affairs. I consider myself an avid supporter of mental health and wellness of the mind, body, and spirit. Prior to serving in my current role, I worked four years as a full-time therapist in a high paced counseling center at a public state university. My passion and commitment is working with and supporting African American women, men and young adults. I do so by way of psycho-education and workshops. I also aim to highlight the intersections of mental health, faith, and spirituality. Therefore, working with churches to discuss and inform congregations of the importance of mental health and wellness is extremely important to me. I am an author and will release my first book this year titled, “Bibs, Burbs and Bottles: Stories of African American Women without Children” this year. I understand first-hand the rewards and challenges of being an unmarried, single, professional, Black women, without children. I am a daughter, sister, bestie, auntie, niece, and friend. Some of my hobbies and interests include Black Psychology, scrapbooking, community service, dog lover, travel, reading, writing, and sacred time with my family and my dog, Lenni.
Do you have another topic of interest as it relates to mental health and wellness? Anything on women's issues that you would like for me to present? Are you looking for a motivational or keynote speaker? I would love to work with you!
