LaToya is truly amazing. She has a way of listening and providing support that I’ve never experienced with other therapists. I highly recommend LaToya for therapy.

I have had bad experiences in the past so coming in I was not to sure. However just with the first video session La Toya Tanniehill completely changed my opinion. I was comfortable with her. I opened up to her immediately and I have a hard time letting people in. I’m looking forward to this journey!

Having LaToya as my therapist has changed my life. I tell everyone that my therapist is my best friend. LaToya has really fostered an endearing relationship with me, and I value it to the utmost degree. She’s an excellent listener when I need her to be, and when she offers me her professional expertise, it’s always spot on. Having a therapist that you can relate to is worth it’s weight in gold, and I love that she gets me and understands me and takes her time to learn me in every session by letting me talk her ear off lol. I’m so glad that LaToya was placed in my life. I wouldn’t know what to do without her…
