Modern-day superheroes are not the ones we familiarize in motion pictures, but rather the quintessential professionals; gifted with a sharp sense of servant leadership, willing to show up greatly; in the lives of those who need it most. Yielded to this profound ethic; is the multifaceted advocate, Dr. Josephine Harris. .

Dr. Josephine Harris is a military spouse, a Mental Health Expert, an International Bestselling author, 8X Times #1 Amazon bestselling author, 5 X Times International Bestselling author, Regional Vice President (Western area) of the HERpernuer Network, philanthropist, behavior analyst, serial entrepreneur, and CEO/Founder of Calming Minds LLC, a multidimensional coaching practice, that helps clients connect with the mind, body, and soul, by way of inspiration, facilitation, coaching, and other dynamic mechanisms.

Bringing a vast portfolio of uncompromising skill sets and certifications to her practice, within the realms of Addiction Counseling, Intervention programming, Domestic Violence, individual and group psychotherapy, and many more; Dr. Josephine Harris proves herself to be an ideal collaborator; and one of the many reasons, she has earned outstanding respect, from those she serves. Dr. Harris’ mantra is simple: She is inherently committed to the emboldening of women, particularly military spouses; facilitating for them all, an opportunity of hope. Whether it be through transformational messages of professional and/or personal growth, Dr. Harris was born, to encourage, motivate, and empower women of all cultures. Dr. Josephine Harris backs an amazing portfolio, with incredible regard for higher learning.

She is certified in both, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) as well as a Psychology Professor at Bates Technical College, and is an Internationally Licensed Psychotherapist, proudly serving the Seoul Counseling Center in South Korea, since 2018.

Naturally, Dr. Josephine Harris has served as a staple in both, the professional vernacular of mental health advocacy, as well as several other philanthropic-driven platforms. She is a Member of the Board of Directors at SafePlace Olympia, which advocates for survivors of both sexual assault and domestic violence, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Psi Chi Member; the NAMI Association, CHADD Association, CHADD International, American Psychology Association, American Counseling Association, Addiction Counseling Association, Phi Sigma Theta National Society; and the Applied Behavior Association. Though recognized on various platforms for her outstanding abilities, Dr. Harris considers her greatest accomplishment to have been her contributions as the International Coordinator for Seoul, South Korea, where she developed and implemented the Applied Behavioral Analysis services (ABA) program; receiving more than 90% positive post-program evaluations, while having also developed instructional coaching materials and facilitated clients, with mental health illness.

Dr. Harris also managed to develop and present the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) program related to trauma/stress within the military community. Dr. Harris’ philanthropy is inspired by a famous quote from the late Maya Angelou, that states: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” When Dr. Harris is not out advocating for those in need, she is a deeply appreciated member of her communal body, and loved greatly, by family and friends
