About Me

Relationships can seem like a dream come true , a blessing and a fulfillment of a deeper purpose. For some couples, this is a reality. For most; however, the road to relationship satisfaction is not straight or without challenges. Luckily, there are ways to achieve a more satisfying union and even to dissolve a relationship in a way that is considerate and purposeful.

Hello! My name is Tahna and I would love to help you and your partner design and achieve the relationship you desire. I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 10 years in the field of counseling and have also been a personal coach for 15 years. I am also married and can bring a quiet, personal understanding into each session.

I have assisted countless individuals and couples navigate relationship challenges and would love the opportunity to assist you. I approach every situation as a new and unique experience. Although the relationship tools needed to create and maintain a successful relationship are standard, there will be nothing "standard" about the approach that I will take to address your specific issues and unique experiences. I will consider all of the special traits and significant history of each individual and couple when creating a plan for clarifying, repair, healing and maintenance.

Thank you in advance for choosing me. I look forward to being a support.

She just has a WAY. How she asks questions and offers prompts and advice is so gentle, to the point, and helpful. It’s clear that there is an artistry and craft to asking the hard questions. She has made (us) believers in couples counseling

She’s very easy to talk to! I’m new to ReGain so I’m not sure how to use the messaging feature. The timeslots that she has available to have a phone conversation don’t really fit into my schedule all that well so I try to make it work

Tahna is an incredible listener and counseling services professional. I can imagine the difficulty in simultaneously assisting two people in a non-biased manner, and Tahna did this with grace. She addressed our deepest concerns, and was incredibly communicative and responsive, even checking in proactively even when graduate school kept us from being the most engaged. I highly recommend Tahna and feel that my partner and I have made great strides under her care.

Tahna is an incredible counselor. Her calm and sage disposition has really helped me open up tremendously. I have grown so much with her help, and while I was hesitant at first, Tahna has really made our counseling sessions a safe and supportive space. I feel that I can truly bring up any and all experiences with her, and I am truly grateful.
