I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of South Carolina with over 10 years of experience working as a mentor, therapist, and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I've only had three session with Tanya so far, but I'm really enjoying her energy so far. She's supportive and helps me with concrete actions. I'm really excited to be working with her!
Tanya is wonderful. I am grateful to have such a wonderful person in my corner
Great listener and therapist. I feel comfortable to talk about my issues. Shes reliable and honest
Tanya helped me out of a very dark place after a breakup. She gave me the confidence to set boundaries (which was SO hard for me!) and the tools to recognize red flags in the dating world. I have learned so much about myself in terms of thinking patterns, core beliefs, and how I relate to others. I now have higher self esteem and greater understanding of myself. Thank you, Tanya <3
I really like Tanya Smith because she is knowledgeable and gives me tools to deal with my issues. She has help me work with my anxiety and with my mother. I am grateful and I'd like to keep her for a while.
I have been working with Tanya for about 4 months now and she has been nothing short of amazing! She knows how to deal with all of the many situations I come at her with. She is professional but personable and gives the best advice. Highly recommend!
I feel very comfortable speaking with Tanya, and she has been very lovely to work with! Even in the short time we have had so far, we are a good fit and she makes me feel at ease.
She is great!!
Very personable and let me drive the direction of therapy
Tanya has been great those far. Very responsive.
It’s has only been a short time but in this amount of time, I feel like she has helped me tremendously. She listens and provides support. She has taught me several different techniques to help overcome my anxiety. Look forward to more sessions with her.
I'm moving on to other services acerpted by my insurance. But the time we did have was very nice. Tanya listens really well and seems to truly understnad and empathize
Tanya so far has been imperative to the progress in rebuilding my relationship with my fiance from the ground up, and helping to make me aware of MANY facets of my life which were impacting my decisions on a regular basis. She has helped me take a step back, re-assess and become aware of my triggers and insecurities where I now feel more comfortable opening up and expressing myself freely. Although there is still a lot of work to do, I certainly see it as something which could be overcome in the near future.
Tanya has helped me start a journey that is changing my life for better and helping others around me. She listens and has great solutions to issues. She has a diverse background and is very talented. Thanks!
Great therapist, listens and she’s very understanding and gives you precise and direct advice!
Tanya has been working with me a short while and has already made my days better. Talking with her is just so easy and she really helps you to be accountable. She gives great insight and perspective. I love her approach! She has a variety of work hours to accommodate my crazy schedule. Honestly such a great experience!
This has been flexible, easy and convenient!
Tanya is skilled at maintaining a professional distance and not getting caught up in my drama, and provides some helpful suggestions.
