Tanya earned her BA in Psychology from the University of Texas and completed her Masters Degree in counseling from St. Edwards University. She will be a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in June 2018. Tanya provides individual and group therapy services for a variety of mental health needs. She is trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and is a certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator. Her approach to therapy is hands on and experiential using evidence-based therapies. A therapy session with Tanya will typically involve the experiential practice of a guided mindfulness meditation, clarifying your goals and values, and “homework” to help create new habits
Tanya has been practicing yoga and mindfulness as a way of life since 2005. She is committed to a path of holistic health and wellness and is passionate about sharing the teachings of mindfulness with others. She is dedicated to her own mindfulness practices in order to be more present with her clients. She understands the importance of the therapeutic relationship and aims to provide a safe haven for clients to discover their own greatness.
Tanya is fortunate to be part of a large Maui Ohana and when not in session, you will find her reading, meditating in public settings, enjoying her two keiki, and floating on the ocean.
