I am Tanya Davis, Licensed Professional Counselor. I earned a Master’s of Science degree in Professional Counseling (Clinical Counseling). I have been providing therapy in various settings for over 10 years to individuals, couples and families. I’ve worked specifically in substance treatment facilities, with veterans and with college students. Throughout my career, I’ve conducted dozens of workshops and on self-esteem, mental toughness, LGBTQIA+ education and career development.
What I know about therapy?
Therapy can be hard because it should move you out of your comfort zone, but if you are willing to commit to the process, the reward will outweigh the temporary discomfort. As your counselor, I will be there with you as we work through the tough parts. Kudos to you for starting the process of finding the right fit for your counseling needs.
What do I believe about therapy?
Therapy validates your feelings when feelings had to be numbed, therapy helps to reintegrate pieces of yourself that have been shattered by hurt, therapy renews confidence in yourself so that you my go after the desires of your heart. Therapy rebuilds the toolbox that lies within yourself so that you can better cope with life’s challenges. Therapy is a mirror, a journey within the self with someone there to point out clues that help you understand your way. Therapy provides scaffolding until you can stand on your own.
How do I understand you and how do I help you?
I use an integrative approach for understanding you and helping you through your challenges. The basis of my understanding is a combination of Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which means I believe that our problems arise out of what we believe and what we tell ourselves about ourselves. Most of our issues come from using coping skills that used to serve us but over time may no longer be as useful as they once were. Those coping mechanisms that were so good to us may now be the thing that holds us back from what we seek.
When to seek therapy:
Feeling stuck, sad, worried, unfulfilled, grieving, hopeless, not quite right, an inability to make decisions, relationship problems, coping skills, self-exploration, growth, LGBT+ concerns.
I look forward to us working together.

I was seeing Tanya in 2020 during the peak of the pandemic, and she did an amazing job working with me and slowing building me up during a time of extensive isolation and turmoil all around. She quickly found areas for me to improve and slowly worked me through building skills and esteem, empowering me to address those issues on my own eventually.
