Tashuna HuntLMSW

Founder & Lead Therapist

Tashuna is a Licensed Social Worker, who has a passion for creating space for individuals and/or families to evolve and feel empowered to reach their desired goals. Partnering with others as they live authentically and work toward developing their mental wellness tool kit is one of her greatest desires. 


She believes self-love coupled with a strong support system is foundational in navigating life experiences. Families are unique and can be quite complex, however, they provide great influence and it’s my belief that family gives us the roots to stand tall and strong.


Tashuna grew up in Chicago, IL and moved to Grand Rapids, MI as a teen and remained in the area. She enjoys spending time with my two fur babies, friends, family, attending faith-based events, and traveling the world. Tashuna is an influencer and her greatest joy is helping others achieve their full potential.
