On today's episode, my friend Dr. Nekeshia Hammond gives us some great insights into how she built her practice over the past seven years, as a wife, mother and an entrepreneur.
Dr. Hammond is a licensed psychologist, speaker, and author, as well as the owner of Hammond Psychology & Associates, P.A., a private practice dedicated to helping children, teens, families, and adults. She has owned her business for the past seven years, and she has enjoyed helping numerous families.
In addition to her private practice work, she is actively involved in giving back to the community. She is the 2016 President-Elect of the Florida Psychological Association and the 2016 Secretary for the Ryan Nece Foundation. Additionally, she is involved in various outreach activities in the community.
Dr. Hammond is also a “key psychologist” at the state and federal levels, where she meets with legislators and actively advocates for patients of mental health and mental health professionals. She also frequently consults with the media regarding mental health topics affecting children and families, and she enjoys speaking at various events.
