I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 10 years of experience helping individuals and couples. I enjoy working with clients who are dealing with depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma disorders, relationship issues, mood difficulties, and life transitions.

I bring an integrative approach to my practice, as I believe in taking into account the unique ways that my clients view the world. I use a variety of treatment approaches to help my clients understand their own thoughts and behavior and how these may be influenced by their personal experiences and history. I believe that changing a difficult situation starts with self-compassion, acceptance, understanding and empowerment.

I would be a good match for anyone looking for a female, culturally-competent therapist. My training and personal experiences with social and cultural intersectionality also make me a good match for those who are in need of support that is free of judgement or persecution. I especially welcome those who represent the LGBTQ-IA community, all individuals navigating complicated family and romantic relationships, and those in need of support navigating issues of sexual health.

Thank you for choosing to work with me. I will make it my mission to help you to realize your full potential, so that you may live your best life as you define it.

Written by K.A. on Sep 09, 2019 after counseling with Tarnisha for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I like how she listens to our concerns and needs and always gives us thought provoking questions to chew on, wrestle with and digest for our next time.

We had a lot to talk about. Tarnisha patiently let us unload our issues, then reviewed and responded. I appreciated that she took the time to sort out the details. I believe that she arrived at the correct conclusion. Our situation was made more complicated by the fact that we have slow internet connectivity. she was patient with this as well.

Tarnisha is great at listening and pinpointing problems and solutions. She has always been available when we needed her. She is honest and easy to connect with. I would recommend her for any couple.

Tarnisha is a great listener and can get to the bottom of anything--I feel like she knows me very well now. She's very understanding of alternative lifestyles and normalizes it in her language and outside resources. I feel like counseling comes naturally to her, she is fair and objective. I love when her personality shows and she tells it like it is. I wish there was a Tarnisha app so I could get advice for everything.

Tarnisha is great, she takes the time to listen to you both individually and also tries to get to the root of the problems. No matter when you need her she is there and is willing to help no matter what the hour.

Very personable and honest. Deals with us as individuals and as a couple, to make us stronger as an individual and as a couple. Always responds back fairly quickly. Fair, and no judgement. Always has worksheets/readings to back up what she’s saying. 10/10
