Clinical Psychologist
Dr. Roz Therapeutic and Coaching Services

As a clinical psychologist with a decade of experience, Dr. Roselyn “Roz’ Aker-Black’s main mission is to break down mental health stigmas and to find ways to create better, more affordable access to health care.

Aker-Black offers “teleclasses,” where participants can get therapy sessions virtually or by listening on the phone. Costs are lower – $25 versus the typical $150 or more for a traditional therapeutic in-person session – and can be done in the comforts of their own home.

“We believe that everyone is entitled to access and this is just one way we try to meet that need in the community,” Aker-Black says.

Aker-Black also runs an online forum where participants discuss relationship matters. She looks for patterns and develops content that participants can use to apply in everyday life.

“Dr. Aker-Black has a way of explaining complex information in a manner that is easily understood. She develops and provides content for her followers to encourage, empower and motivate them to live a purposeful life,” Renay Butler says.
