Tahirah Stevens-Gaillard, M.S. (she/her/hers) has worked in an educational setting since 2012. She earned her Bachelor of Arts and Master ‘s of Science degree from Neumann University and is currently studying at Neumann for her Master’s in Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling. After many years of teaching, she was motivated to find a way to address the trauma that sat in classrooms. She sought her second master in the hope that she would be able to find a way to help. She desired not only to walk the journey to heal with her students but with their families as well. “I grew in my passion for serving others. During my years as a classroom teacher, I was very involved in my students’ lives inside and outside the classroom. I always took great interest in the individuals (and their families) and what made them unique, the good and the not-so-good. I developed an ability to lead and listen to ensure their needs were heard, recognized, and met. My passion for advocating and supporting others has led me to the great work of counseling.”
Now, after being in the program for two years+, Tahirah continues to be drawn to supporting those who live their lives with the baggage of trauma. In her work at the Phoenix Center, Tahirah plans to continue to learn and develop her skills and strengthen in trauma therapy, EMDR, spiritual counseling, psychodrama, and narrative therapy.
Tahirah’s typical fee is $85 for individual therapy (50 min); she can work on a flexible sliding scale if needed.
