What People Are Saying
"I have been working with Talya for just over 14 months. Initially what brought me to her office was more for positive feedback, strategic planning and tools to help me move out of a ‘rut’ in my life. With Talya’s guidance, wisdom, and her vast experiences she nurtured and cultivated my truly broken spirit and brought me alive again. I am excited about the present moment and even more excited about the future. Thank you Talya!"
"Talya and I started our work together when she was the mental health therapist for a Navy Special Operations Group in Norfolk, VA. I experienced the worst heart break of my life, having my dream job taken away from me. She helped me develop a winning mindset and plan for getting out of this very dark place and back on my path to my life’s work. I especially love her ability to lead me to my own…"

"[Talya] was exactly who I needed to help me out of the deep, dark hole I so badly wanted out of. The lack of judgment and caring personality when talking with her has made it easy to be open and honest. She has this incredible ability to make you feel like you are her only client and always gives you 200% of her time and attention. She has helped me deal with my illness, my family, and…"
"I've been working with Talya for 9 months now and she has helped me tremendously with getting used to being uncomfortable as I stretch my comfort zone in ways I've never done before. As a result, I've experienced amazing growth. Her intuition is spot on. The no-judgement, safe environment she creates enables great conversation that leads to discovery and growth. Her acceptance of others and genuine passion for helping people is unparalleled."
