Welcome

Hey! Thank you for stopping by my website! I am LaTanya. I am thankful for the blessing and the opportunity to be a Black Mental Health Clinician! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who provides life coaching and mental health therapy to individuals, families, and couples. I also provide coaching, therapy and clinical consultation to other clinicians. It is my personal life’s mission to improve the life trajectories of people and communities, with a specific dedication to black clinicians and black professionals.

As a clinician, I provide culturally relevant, strength-based interventions while utilizing an eclectic approach. The clinical interventions that I provide are primarily by incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy, through a trauma-informed lens.

As a life coach, I continue to provide culturally relevant coaching interventions, also from a strength-based perspective. I will help you identify goals, find solutions to issues impeding your personal or professional progress. For mental health clinicians, I can also help you identify your niche.

I support all of my clients with individualized approaches while providing accountability, caring, honesty, and realness. Something that I view as an invaluable necessity, no matter what population I am serving, is self-care. A foundational belief that I hold is that self-care is an ethical mandate for anyone in the helping professions, even more so for people of color.

I received my Masters degree in Social Work (MSW) and Pupil Personnel Services Credential in School Social Work and Child Welfare and Attendance from California State University Long Beach.  I became licensed by the State of California as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).  I also earned a second Masters in Educational Leadership from California State University Dominguez Hills.  I am also a Certified Christian Life Coach from the Professional Christian Coaching & Counseling Academy (PCCCA).

​I have worked for almost two decades providing social services in various settings. For eleven years, I was honored to provide mental health services to children, adolescents and their families as a Psychiatric Social Worker for the second largest school district in the nation.

​For six years, I was an Adjunct Faculty and Field Liaison in the Master of Social Work (MSW) Program at California State University, Dominguez Hills.

​Since 2011, I have maintained my private practice, which is devoted to helping people with various challenges. I provide life coaching, mental health therapy, clinical supervision and consultations to other mental health professionals, as well as to other populations. My concentrated population is adults, families and couples, and I have walked with them after their experiences with trauma, grief and loss, professional issues and other problems causing life impairments.

​I also enjoy public speaking to various populations, delivering Professional Development trainings and mentoring other clinicians.

​I have been and will always be committed to inspiring and empowering others towards healing, growth, change and goal attainment–so that they can attract and ultimately reach their optimum potential.
