Design and Align a Life of Light, Freedom, and Truth



Hello! My name is Raquelle A. Smartt (she/her). I am a Therapist turned Happiness Coach. Happiness Coaching is similar to life coaching as it focuses on helping people attain greater fulfillment in their lives. However, happiness coaching in particular provides strategies to help you find your light inside of you and to help you create a harmonious life with it. 


I graduated from Hampton University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism and minors in English and Psychology.


I graduated from the University of San Diego with a Master of Arts degree in Marital and Family Therapy.  

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who practiced for 6 years. I specialized in treating children using play therapy and treating young adults who experienced trauma, depression, and anxiety using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have facilitated parenting and emotional regulation classes as well.  I am now a Clinical Supervisor to Associate Marriage and Family Therapists, Associate Clinical Social Workers, and Associate Professional Clinical Counselors.

My life's purpose is to use my talents, knowledge, and voice to leave this world better than I found it. Providing Black America with skills to better themselves, their relationships, and their lives is one way to achieve that.


I am a PUBLISHED author! Check out my FIRST book, The Roots Beneath The Tree: A Book of Poetry by Ashley Raquelle. I am also a Facebook blogger at Life Is Rocqi, a co-host on the It'sSoulReal Podcast, an abstract acrylic painter, and a professional speaker. Please check out my YouTube Channel for all of my talents.
