Tawnya Davis, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Raised Christian, I have adopted various spiritual beliefs and philosophies throughout adulthood and added those to my personal spiritual practice. I don’t put myself in any particular religious box. I consider myself to not be so much a human being having a spiritual experience but rather a spiritual being having a human experience. I feel that spirituality and a connection to a higher power is an important aspect of healing and I welcome all faiths and beliefs into the therapy space.
I use a multitude of approaches, which many therapists define as “eclectic.” This really means that I practice person-centered treatment designed for YOU at the time you need it and this will vary from session to session. I pull from include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy (MBCT), narrative therapy, humanistic therapy, existential/logotherapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy. Somatic therapies are another modality I like to use to help release emotional and physical pain.
Special areas of focus include grief and bereavement (including pet loss), purpose and meaning, women’s issues (including working with expectant mothers), spirituality and religion, and death and dying.
