Hi my name is Tavia. I'm a Texas State Board Licensed Professional Counselor. I hold a Master's Degree in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling with an emphasis in Ethnic Minorities from Southern University and A&M College. During my academic work, I was inducted in Chi Sigma Iota, an international honor society. I began my professional counseling journey, working with individuals with disabilities both physical and mental specifically targeting workforce adjustments. Later in my career, I received additional education to provide clinical psychotherapy to adolescents, adults, and families with diverse backgrounds and ranges of concern. In addition, I have formal training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
My specialties includes creating strategies and support building to address disability issues, trauma, work/life balance, depression, and anxiety provoking thoughts. I believe in a holistic and solution-focused approach to treatment- partnering with individuals to exceed their life goals and feel better about themselves and the future ahead. My therapeutic style involves providing insight, strategies, and realistic tools whenever possible to help you have a workable blueprint for the following days, months, and years to come. If this aligns with your plan, then I look forward to hearing from you soon.
I'm thrilled you took the initial step to seek support for a more purposefully and happier life! I'm a firm believer that change happens we match desire with our conscious imagination. If you are ready to take that step I am here to walk along side while supporting and empowering you.
Total wellness and restoration,

Tavia is an amazing therapist. I am so thankful I found her. I am a therapist myself and needed to be challenged as I challenge my clients. She's an active listener and offers sound solid suggestions and open ended questions to me so that I can move forward.

So patient and non judgemental and after 1 session she was able to pick up on my weaknesses.

Tavia has been so wonderful! She’s supportive and encouraging, especially with things I’d consider “small”. She is so great with helping me appreciate even those “small” things! She’s straight up which I love because I don’t need a “yes” man. She’s just fantastic and I love having her as my therapist!
