Hi everyone. I am Tahiyya Martin.  I am honored that you are here.

Growing up I always knew I wanted to work with people. I loved to pretend to be the teacher with my stuffed animals and dolls. Then life happened and I experienced my own emotional pains. In my own journey I’ve gone through my pains to receive many gains and  wanted to give back to others, help others through their healing and transformation process.

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of North Carolina. I am certified in Reiki Usui System of Natural Healing at Master level.

I have a special interest working with women on challenges in relationships, codependency, perfectionism, disordered eating, grief/loss, and self discovery. In addition to the special interest areas I also treat anxiety and depression and teach stress management skills.

I approach therapy with the mindset of providing a safe place to build a therapeutic relationship that is nurturing, challenging, supportive, and empowering to the client. I believe in providing a safe place for holistic healing and transformation.

As an eclectic therapist with a primary experiential approach I focus on providing a safe space to listen to your story using experiences, movement, and expressive techniques to help you feel your emotions, heal your pain and deal with how it shows up in your current experiences. Therapy with me involves letting go of the outcome and focusing on exploring roots.

As a Reiki practitioner I integrate energy healing to restore balance to core energy fields that are blocked or congested which affects our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health. I also use the alternative healing approach of meditation to connect the body with the mind as a way to gain awareness of our emotions so we can feel, heal, and deal.

I graduated from Liberty University with a MA in Human Services: Marriage and Family and Walden University with a MS in Marriage, Couple, Family Counseling. I have worked in the mental health and substance use field for over ten years in residential, community health and outpatient therapy with a diverse population and issues to include ADHD, mood, personality and behavioral disorders, addiction, disordered eating, infidelity, trauma, couple and family issues. I have received training in Seeking Safety, Motivational Interviewing, Experiential, Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Systems Therapies, and Gottman Method Level I, Usui Reiki Level Master as well as trained as a Family Trauma Professional by IATP/PESI.

I truly believe in holistic healing  therefore my eclectic approach is geared towards healing and shifting the body, mind, spirit, and soul.

On the personal side I am a mother of 4, a step mother of 2, a wife, and an avid watcher of crime stories (Law & Order and ID Channel) lol. I also enjoy catching up on my shows such as Modern Family and Blackish on the weekend with my husband and kids.  I practice yoga and meditation with my toddler to zen us out. Helping others is a deep rooted passion of mine. I also advocate for mental health, provide emotional wellness and recovery coaching, and provide clinical consulting services to organizations. .
