Taja Riley, MA, LPC, NCC
Inspirational, positive and driven are some of the adjectives people often use to describe her. Residing in Philadelphia, Pa. Taja Riley recognizes the importance of being a positive light to everyone she encounters. After losing her mother at a young age, Taja knew that she wanted to work with children and adolescents. She wanted to be to them the person she never had - someone to talk to. Taja has chosen the path of mental health as a way to uplift and encourage youth to strive towards a better tomorrow.
Taja is also the author of a guided journal for women called "Walls of Joy," which will soon be expanding into a full series of psychoeducational books for women and children. Her goal is to inspire people to daily be the full package by becoming the best version of themselves. She has spoken at numerous events and workshops and each year hosts an empowerment event in Philadelphia PA called iShine.
Some of Taja's future aspirations include a private practice, traveling around the world to speak about mental health and resiliency and opening a community center where she can continue to provide free and low cost programs to individuals and families.
