Dr. Martin Here!

Hey ya'll! This is my inaugural blog post and I'm going to be honest....I have no idea what to talk about. That's not because I have nothing to say (I think we all know that's not one of my issues). It's because I typically have soooo much to say. So I figured I would take the easy way out and just re-introduce myself (this was clearly in my Jay-Z voice).

My name is Dr. Raquel Martin and I'm a licensed clinical psychologist, professor, mother, wife, and all around scattered human being (at least as of late). I wear many hats...and should probably toss a couple out the window, but that's not happening any time soon. You may have found me from social media, my podcast, or just randomly browsing the internet (feel free to comment below how you found me) but either way I'm glad you're here.

I'm from Philly but currently reside in Nashville, TN. Yes, I actually love country music, no you will never see me downtown, yes I enjoy Hot Chicken, and No I don't get mine from Hattie B's. My favorite things to do include reading, blasting rap and hip hop way too loud, and hiding from my toddler sons. I enjoy hanging out with them too, but they're a bit obsessed with me at the moment so I hide...a lot.

I am hoping that this blog space can be an avenue to share some resources that I find for Black mental health, let out my thoughts on everything from what I'm watching (Bob Hearts Abishola) to what I am reading (Binti) to just random frustrations (when did we decided that all pants were now ankle pants).

Now I'm still learning how to do all this, I've said it a million times but it's just me behind the wheel of this thing, at least for now, so bear with me as I learn how to add all of the fun gifs and media and all that.

What do you want to hear...or is it read....I'm so used to video lol. What do you want to read from me (that still sounds weird)? Comment Below.
