Please tell us about yourself.
TaMia: Originally from Flint, Michigan I now call Houston, Texas home. My journey from Flint to Texas has been on to remember; filled with the highs of entering the behavioral health field and graduating with my psychology degree from an HBCU, and the lows of experiencing spiritual and narcissistic abuse. It was during this time I realized I was living a life that served everyone but myself.
This awakened me to the journey of genuine self-care that allowed me to have thriving relationships, improved confidence, and live authentically. Unfortunately, understanding of how to be self-aware and emotional intelligent is not information that is well known or taught in society, but is one of the most important skills you will ever learn in life. It can be recycled and applied to every area of your life including but not limited to: parent, platonic, romantic and workplace relationships.
The past decade I have been intentional about my healing journey, addressing trauma and my inner child to improve my mental and physical wellness. This personal journey combined with my professional experience has allowed me to create a lane for you to safely enter or continue your wellness journey; a place for you to be vulnerable enough to deconstruct who you are and improve your confidence to reinvent yourself as many times as your heart desires.
What makes your approach unique?
TaMia: My approach is unique because self-awareness and emotional intelligence are skills that can be used for a life time. Self-reflective questions can apply to every situation and relationship in life; it can also be recycled countless times for continue exploration or self.
Do you believe in work- life balance? If so how do you maintain it?
TaMia: I do not believe in work life balance. There will always something that you give more attention and others that you neglect. We are constantly stretched thin between work, family, friends working out, eating right, drinking your water etc. There is no way that we will do all things well all the time, and that’s okay.
What’s your best piece of advice for aspiring and new entrepreneurs?
TaMia: Keep going, keep doing and keep being.
