THE LIVE AUTHENTIC THERAPIST & COACH
Authenticity - /ô′thĕn-tĭs′ĭ-tē/
the quality of being genuine, original, real, actual, bona fide, trustworthy
Hey! I'm La Tanya
"You will find that I am just an ordinary girl with an extraordinary story of faith, perseverance and triumph. Don't let the pictures here fool you, I wasn't always this bold; that was until I I finally decided to give up being perfect, for being authentically me.
This whole living authentic lifestyle is simply a byproduct of an effective fervent prayer life, coupled with learning, loving and embracing who I was created to be in the process.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Graduate Student in training, (supervised by Dr. Cortina Louis), a Certified Christian Counselor and Certified Master Life Coach. I believe we were all created by design to fulfill a unique purpose in life - one that often gets in the way with masks of fear, failure, hurt, offense, unforgiveness, and abuse, to name a few. I don't take your mental health or personal/professional development lightly, and am passionate about helping you to reach and maintain a level of authenticity that is only found with introspection, dedication and hard work."
My core areas of focus are:
Inner healing, Depression, Anxiety, Crisis Counseling, Self-Care,
Individual, Mental Wellness Coaching, Intentionality, Spiritual Development, Pre-Martial & Marital Counseling
is not compromising your values or your worth for the sake of pleasing others. It is looking yourself dab smack in the eyes and noticing your flaws, yet realizing, that flaws and all, you are wonderfully made.
LA TANYA D. WALKER
Authenticity - This doesn't come without work. In fact, it was years before I stopped hiding from who I was called to be and walked in my purpose. Authenticity is not compromising your values or your worth for the sake of pleasing others. It is looking yourself dab smack in the eyes and noticing your flaws, yet realizing, that flaws and all, you are fearfully and wonderfully made. With the work of learning to be my true and authentic self, I am now able to create a safe place for those around me to do the same where there is absolutely no judgement or pretense.
Do IT Scared - This is my personal mantra. If we are not careful, fear can suffocate us and even become debilitating. Unlike many, I didn't have a fear of failure. I had mastered that. Instead, I had a fear of success. You heard it correctly, success, and I was drowning and couldn't seem to find my way up. That was, until I learned to "do it scared." Without going into detail, let's just say, I had to go for it. As we work together towards your personal healing, I will challenge you to dig deep and find that thing that scares you the most, then with your eyes wide shut, trust that there's a safety net there and jump!
Seeing The Glass As Half Full - Your perception truly is your reality. How you see things will determine how you choose to live life. Once I was able to see my life through God's lens, I never saw the glass as half empty. It stays practically full. I find joy in helping others see get to the place where they too, see the glass as half full
