My Story:

The Family

Ever Feel Stuck and Held Captive by Circumstances?

Hi, I’m Tanya Brown, the youngest sister of Nicole Brown Simpson. Living through a global criminal case, “The Trial of the Last Century” caused me to develop unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as shutting down my feelings to get by.

I was unaware of mental illness, I didn’t deal with stress, grief, and codependence in healthy ways. These self-sabotaging behaviors caught up to me when I attempted suicide in 2004. It’s not that I wanted to die, I just wanted the pain to stop. I was suicidal, exhausted from unresolved pain, grief, anxiety, stress, and couldn’t see a way out.

In the recovery hospital, I discovered how to manage my thoughts. I was taught self-care tools that helped me.  It made all the difference in the world and put me on a path to learn all I could about psychology.

In the mental health industry, there’s a lot of studies, statistics, and reports, but not much being said about the “how to prevent” mental health issues.

My MIssion:


I’m now a self-care advocate with a master's in psychology counseling so I can equip you with the tools to optimize your mental health and well-being.  No one should suffer without having access to the life-giving self-care tools to transform your life from chaos into peace.

Here's how I've helped others:

Richard struggled with ambiguous grief as he sat and watched his wife deteriorate from Alzheimer’s. Using Tanya’s Tools and 12 Strategies for Life Management, he found healthy coping skills.

I started working with Tanya, when I was unable to overcome extreme grief and sadness, because of my son's severe mental illness.

I had become so enmeshed as his caregiver and emotionally stuck. I had fallen into a deep, dark rabbit hole of despair.

Tanya helped me to separate and give myself permission to prioritize my own self-care again.

She provided excellent resources and skills that helped me on all levels- spiritually, mentally, and physically.

Through her guidance and ongoing encouragement, I was able to find peace and joy again.
