What is Her Mission?

Tanya is the CEO and Founder of 

KhepeRa Counseling and Consulting.  

My mission is multifaceted: 

  1. I help women turn their trauma into triumph. I motivate and teach them how to take responsibility for their lives, reclaim their joy, master their minds, and manage depression so they can craft the life they want and deserve. 
  2. I consult with human service organizations and schools on program development and expansion to help them enhance the quality of services provided to build and sustain healthy communities by building strong, supportive social connections.  
  3. I facilitate skill-building professional development training and provide coaching to assist organizations and schools with the implementation of restorative practices to support the improvement of organizational culture and climate for the purpose of enhancing student and staff work ethic and performance and client satisfaction.

What Does KhepeRa Mean?

Why did you choose this for your company?

KhepeRa is a Khemetic word that means transformation, renewal, rebirth, new beginning. Everyone can make the decision to transform/rebirth themselves and reset their lives if they just take the next right action and do the work! I am committed to supporting others in taking the next right action to transform their lives and improve the quality of human services provided by the organizations I consult with who serve the community.

Personal & Professional Values

These are values that I make every effort to uphold as I move through life. They are the barometer by which I judge myself and my actions. They help me maintain balance and integrity in the work that I do. As an imperfect human being striving to become the best version of myself I sometimes fall short. When I do I reflect on how I am showing up in the world and am able to recalibrate when I realize I am not standing firmly in these values.

Ready for Transformation?

I am here to support your personal and professional growth.
