Talisha Gorham, LPC


Often healing comes from within and I provide the space and tools for you to develop your own self-awareness to begin to heal and move toward the future that you want and deserve. I am a graduate from Liberty University with a Masters degree in Professional Counseling and I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia. I have an extensive background in working with children, adolescents, and adults. I have been working in the mental health field for over 13 plus years. I have a passion for helping others as well as providing hope and a positive outlook toward a better future. I take an integrative approach while focusing on your strengths and needs. I will assist you in building the tools you need to be successful in overcoming life challenges and transitions. We will work together to explore and process your current feelings. Your well-being is my ultimate concern.

I believe that we all need to be heard and that no one should be silenced. Not everyone has a safe place to voice their feelings and I believe having a safe place to process feelings is a must. I believe that we should all be non judgmental no matter the circumstance(s) that one may be going through. Compassion for all is important and will help end the stigma of mental health in society. Trauma, childhood experiences, and/or life experiences as an adult can impact us but it does not define who we are or become! I believe changes can be made at any time if one is willing to work and seek help when needed. I was raised in a biracial family and believe that inclusion for all is very important. Please contact me if you are in need of help or just need a safe place to be heard.

Tara Johnson, LMHP-Resident in Counseling


Hello! My name is Tara Johnson, LMHP-Resident in Counseling, and I am a graduate of Walden University with my Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling with a minor in Forensic Counseling.  In my educational and clinical journey, I have learned a variety of methods and techniques, but have found the Cognitive-Behavioral approach to be of great assistance during the therapeutic process. However, I am also aware that everyone is unique thereby requiring the addition of other therapies as warranted to my “mental health toolbox”. All theories incorporate an understanding of the need to change one’s approach to a situation even if the situation continues to exist.

Oftentimes, one’s reaction to a situation is more of a hindrance to change and growth than the situation itself; therefore, it is important to understand that the effort made while attending therapy will have a significant impact on the overall success of the therapeutic process.

Whether you have attended counseling before or if this is your first endeavor, you will find my style to be relaxed and conversational; so, ease your mind and take that first step to emotional wellness and mental stability. However, this is not to imply that counseling will  not be challenging at times! The change and growth we desire in our lives and relationships can be difficult to achieve as well as maintain unless we actively work together to establish goals and create a “virtual roadmap” to assist you in not only achieving but maintaining your desired goals.  

The secret to health for both mind and body is neither to mourn the past nor worry about the future but live the present moment wisely and earnestly!
