I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, with a Master’s degree in Social Work, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from a CSWE accredited University, Chicago State.
I earned my MSW degree, and my B.A. in Psychology to gain a better understanding of behaviors, and mental functioning, and how I can best serve clients in achieving optimal clinical outcomes. For as far back as I remember, it has been my desire to serve people. Throughout my education and life experience, I have acquired strong skill sets that could be an asset to anyone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and put the work in to achieve their desired goals. I am here to help! I am here to equip you with strategies for life, coming from Evidence Based Modalities. You have what it takes, and I am here to help.

She is amazing
Written on Jan 30, 2023 after therapy with Taleatha for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, and compassion fatigue
Taleatha is very warm and makes me feel comfortable and safe sharing my feelings. She is understanding, patient, and non-judgemental, but challenges me to think deeper about my issues when appropriate. Exactly what I need in a therapist.
