About me


It has always been my desire to serve and bring out the best in people. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Licensed Practitioner of The Healing Arts, with a Master’s degree in Social Work, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.

Growing up with two parents who struggled with addiction, I experienced anxiety and depression at an early age, and did not want to become a product of my environment. This led me to seek a different path. One where I could not only help myself, but a path where I could take every opportunity to help others as well. I embarked on this journey into the human psyche to gain a better understanding of behaviors, mental functioning, and how I can best serve clients in achieving their desired goals.

I am here to assist those who are willing to roll up their sleeves and put in the work. You have taken a courageous first step; so let's see if we are a good fit, as I would be honored to embark on this journey in collaboration with you. I strive to build a genuine connection with my clients by fostering an environment of transparency and support. You are the expert in your journey, and I am here to assist.

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.
