TaDonya began her career as a therapist out of a desire to help her fellow Veterans struggling with PTSD and life circumstances. She herself has served four years in the U.S. Army and seven years in the Texas National Guard in the area of military Aviation. While in the Army, she earned her Bachelor’s degree at TUI University with a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management. Upon honorable discharge from the military, she remained in Austin, Texas and graduated with a Master of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s University.
She has a passion and desire for helping survivors of sexual trauma, sexual abuse, and Military Vets with PTSD. She provides an environment that is welcoming and is willing to be of service to any asking for help. Her clinical experience includes counseling adolescents, adults, and families in additional areas of substance addiction, depression, anxiety, grief and relationship issues; as well as upsetting events, trauma recovery, early relational trauma, adult children of narcissistic parents, and self-esteem matters.
TaDonya has helped adults overcome traumatic life experiences by helping them to identify and resolve how their past is unconsciously coming into play in their present and causing them to not feel good enough, to feel stuck, or to repeat situations in their career or personal life. She helps her clients find meaning in these experiences and have a more authentic connection with themselves, so they can have a more genuine connection with others.
TaDonya is trained in EMDR, Trauma Focused Therapy, Complex PTSD, & Trauma-Related Dissociation. While she understands many models of therapy, the theories & therapeutic approaches she utilizes the most are Reality Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, EMDR and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy.
