My name is Jessica Clemons and I’m a Doctor…

After completing medical school at Cornell in 2015, I have journeyed into the wonderful and, oftentimes, curious field of psychiatry. On this journey, I have learned to dig deep within myself through my work everyday caring for people with mental illness and the unique experiences I have as a black psychiatrist.

Follow along with me, as I grow in my journey and attempt to demystify the field by sharing my own experiences of both being the caregiver and being cared for by others – family, friends, and  – yep- my own therapist.
