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,

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!

Tavia is the absolute best. Not only does she give me suggestions or tips to better handle my anxiety and stress, she challenges me in many ways. I love it!

I am so thankful to have been connected with Tavia James! I feel that she unlocks a part of me that is an essential asset in my journey towards bettering my mental health. Rather than one-sided sessions, Tavia involves me by asking thought-provoking questions that easily get me to open up - which was especially helpful in the beginning of this therapy journey when I was quieter and unsure of how to talk about what I was experiencing. Tavia has been an amazing guide on this journey! I very much recommend her!

Tavia listens well and also guides well. And what I mean by guides is that offered an exercise and a technique that quickly proved helpful.
