Professional statement

Tanasia Betts is a licensed mental health counselor and Brooklyn native. Tanasia provides a safe space for adults from all walks of life. Many of Tanasia’s clients come in when they recognize their trauma has started to manifest into barriers to living their life fully & freely. Most clients struggle with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or lack of purpose because of unresolved trauma. Tanasia is particularly passionate about serving people of color, people of faith, and the LGBTQIA community.

Tanasia is trained in Cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy, which reveals our core beliefs that life has shaped. As well as evidence-based skills to manage life stressors and maintain emotional wellness. This approach supports clients in taking control of their lives by rewiring the brain and exploring skills to find inner peace.

Tanasia’s style is warm, empowering, and goal-oriented. When a client first comes in, we build a relationship where they can be comfortable sharing their true self. We work together to identify the goals that are most meaningful to them. Tanasia is dedicated to providing a secure relationship. Tanasia received her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Tanasia believes everyone deserves the space to be heard and seen for who they are. Therapy with Tanasia helps clients to gain tools to become emotionally and mentally healthy.
