Hi, I’m Tavia! My specialties include creating strategies and support building to address anxiety provoking thoughts, depression, boundary setting, disability issues, trauma, and work/life balance.

My Story

Instead of reading an interview response, allow me to describe my ideal day. I’m a spontaneous creature who crave structure. The perfect day is spent with family and friends celebrating life on a sunny day with an Arnold Palmer drink in hand. I love to cook, especially anything that contains peppers. Playing cornhole is a hidden talent. And to top it off, I’m a very competitive person. Well enough about me. Let’s address the obvious!

I’m not a blank slated-type of therapist. I offer a safe place to share your thoughts, struggles, even successes. My work is to nurture while challenging you to your highest potential. In my practice, I mainly focus on a holistic and solution-focused approach to treatment. I’ve been in the field since 2011. For more on my educational and training, please continue below.

I’m a Texas State Board Licensed Professional Counselor. I hold a Master’s Degree in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling with an emphasis in Ethnic Minorities from Southern University and A&M College. During my academic work, I was inducted in Chi Sigma Iota, an international honor society. I began my professional counseling journey, working with individuals with disabilities both physical and mental specifically targeting workforce adjustments. Later in my career, I received additional education to provide clinical psychotherapy to adolescents, adults, and families with diverse backgrounds and ranges of concern. In addition, I have formal training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

My Approach

I believe in a holistic and solution-focused approach to treatment- partnering with you to meet your life goals and feel better about yourself and the future ahead. My therapeutic style involves providing insight, strategies, and realistic tools whenever possible to help you have a workable blueprint for the following days, months, and years to come.
