Hi! I’m Dr. Jasmine Jenkins, but my clients usually call me Jasmine, Doc, or Dr. J. I am a multiculturally focused licensed psychologist and the founder of Rejuvenate!
In therapy, I help you balance being “you” and becoming the “new you.” I specialize in group treatment for people of color who want to heal, learn new skills, and build a life of wellness. In individual therapy, I work with people who:
- “just need a person/professional to talk to”
- Desire help with mild mental health symptoms
- Struggle with emotion dysregulation and/or want to find a reason to stay alive. → these individuals usually benefit from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
I am the 1st Black DBT-Linehan Board Certified therapist in the state of Texas (and I practice in 40+ states), and I conduct DBT training through the Treatment Implementation Collaborative (TIC). I have over 10 years of experience working in a variety of mental health settings (e.g. university counseling, partial hospitalization program, EAP, etc.), and I am trained to treat anger and aggression, depression, anxiety, interpersonal conflict, grief, race-based trauma, etc.
My formal education includes a PhD in Counseling Psychology from the University of Georgia, two Master’s degrees in Counseling from the University of Pennsylvania, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Spelman College. I completed an APA Accredited predoctoral internship at the Travis County Juvenile Probation Department, where I currently serve as the Racial and Social Justice Officer. Subsequently, I instruct diversity didactics and seminars for the APA Accredited Predoctoral interns, supervise Postdocs, and conduct culturally specific group treatment with youth. I also offer diversity training, workshops, consultation, and retreats.
I am a California girl at heart, however I have lots of love for the other places I have lived - Georgia, Pennsylvania, Spain, Honduras, and my current home, Texas. Outside of psychology and social justice, I love God, traveling, swimming, food, and spending time with family and friends.
