The J-FIVE Story

J-FIVE was inspired by Dr. Nashunda Carr's son, Jay, a then high-school student-athlete who triumphed over challenges to achieve success in personal and athletic realms. Guided by Dr. Carr's expertise in psychology and use of the cognitive behavioral therapy approach,  the J-FIVE Goal Setting Program was born. Named after Jay and his favorite jersey number, the five dimensions it addresses were created. As the program grew, it transformed student-athletes' lives by offering personalized coaching and resources, helping participants set meaningful goals and develop a growth mindset. Jay's journey stands as an inspiring testament to the program's impact, inspiring a community of empowered individuals who thrive in various aspects of life, echoing his success and igniting positive change.


J-FIVE continues to evolve reaching other populations including scholars, with its' Post-Secondary edition, and its Rejuvenation edition (available 2024) addressing the needs of individuals in substance abuse recovery.
