Hello there! ! My name is Tiana and I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Illinois. I have over 4 years experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including outpatient, inpatient, residential settings. Although that seems like a mouthful, it simply means that I have had experience working with a broad range and severity of clinical issues in different levels of care. I have the most experience working with vocational or career counseling, working with Veterans, workplace issues, return to work adjustments, disability issues, stress, anxiety, addiction and depression.
My commitment to the field of mental health stems from my personal experience with it. I have had my own personal challenges with mental health since the age of fourteen and witnessed family face challenges with addictions, severe mental health issues, along with anxiety and depression. I know firsthand that getting help can be a challenge and find a good match therapist is a task in itself. Whether you are starting or maintaining your mental health wellness journey, there are times where it can feel so frustrating and lonely. However, I also know from experience how much life can change for the better when you find support that you need and deserve.
I base my approach in person-centered and integrative treatment styles. This means I meet you where you are at to create a treatment approach that meets your needs but also addresses the stressors of your identities, lifestyle, and how that impacts your life experience. I use evidence based techniques including motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling. I also incorporate dialectical behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy into my work with clients.
I am dedicated to supporting you as you embark on your mental wellness journey. We will work together to establish concrete goals and steps for you to help develop wellness and address current stressors.

Had my first ever therapy session with Tiana and she was incredibly helpful. It was an eye opening experience with someone who’s incredibly thoughtful, attentive and caring. Would definitely recommend to anyone seeking a kind person to talk with
