With the pandemic giving many people the time to reflect, many have found themselves feeling stuck, going through many transitions, or noticing relationship patterns that they would like to break. I provide assistance processing unresolved relationships from the past, struggles with self-esteem, and a safe place to process daily life stressors. I work from an integrative approach to help you connect your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to early experiences. I assign homework occasionally to assist with learning coping skills that are useful in getting through tough situations. I take this approach to empower you to increase awareness of patterns in coping behaviors and interactions. Finally, my work is social justice-orientated meaning that I assist you with considering the impact of identity and how that impacts your concerns.
I am a licensed mental health counselor and owner of Tea with Taryn Mental Health Counseling. Tea with Taryn Mental Health Counseling was created with the goal of combating the stigma of seeking mental health services by creating a safe space specifically for women of color to focus on their own wellbeing. I have several years of experience in the mental health field working primarily with people of color, in various settings including child welfare, the criminal justice system, and private practice. As a Black first-generation Caribbean woman, I understand the stigma to seeking services in these communities. However, together, we can empower you to find your own solutions, bolster your innate strengths, and find your unique voice.
