Tanysha Truax, M.Ed.

My therapeutic approach:

  • Entering therapy is brave. My goal as counselor is to create a relationship centered on compassion, openness, and trust, qualities necessary to facilitate healing and growth.
  • All our experiences, from childhood to present day shape us. They impact our relationship with ourselves, others and how we show up in the world. My role as a counselor is to provide a safe space to allow you to access the emotional and mental blocks that may be limiting fulfillment and joy in your life .
  • Our bodies hold so much internal wisdom, oftentimes we just need some guidance slowing down and learning to connect and listen to their messages.
  • People typically arrive at therapy because they are struggling in some way. However, beyond the struggle and obstacles, you have always had the answers within you. My aim as a counselor is to guide you, so you can access your own truths, answers and authenticity.
