I am a dedicated LCMHCA and as a mental health counselor, I journey with the client as expert to increase wellness and authenticity, and am dedicated to helping clients through anxiety, depression and trauma.
Before founding Tanya Harding Counseling, PLLC, Tanya worked as an intern performing biofeedback, neurofeedback and counseling to at-risk adolescents in a residential treatment center and utilized motivational interviewing and trauma-informed brief solution-focused therapy, CBT and DBT with female and male inpatients struggling with addiction and trauma in a hospital setting. She has gained experience with clients suffering PTSD, personality disorders, mood and thought disorders, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, OCD, schizophrenia, ASD, suicidality, as well as addictions.
During her internships, Tanya developed a passion for working with trauma and saw firsthand the dramatic improvements biofeedback and neurofeedback offered. Using bilateral tapping in session, with inpatient and outpatient clients also proved incredibly important at helping calm the clients’ nervous systems' when talking about sensitive topics.
Through further investigation into the mind-body connection, Tanya became intrigued with the evidence-based practice of EMDR. Using an 8 Phase approach and protocols based on the unique situation and symptoms of the client is key in helping liberate a client from the historical happenings into a healthy present.
She has incorporated sand tray, somatic experiencing, mindfulness, EMDR, IFS and parts work as well as existentialism in her individual psychotherapy. As a former Tai Chi instructor, she has also incorporated this modality.
She is an LMHCA in Candler, NC (in person/telehealth offerings) and throughout NC for telehealth psychotherapy for adults. EMDR is also compatible with telehealth.
