Asha Tarry is an author, award-winning community mental health advocate, psychotherapist and certified life coach. She is the founder of Behavioral Health Consulting Services LMSW, PLLC; which provides consulting, counseling and coaching to creatives and small business owners in the wellness and entertainment industries and educational sector.
As a treating provider, Tarry has 20 years of experience providing evaluations, diagnoses, treatment and life-enhancing skills to children, adults, families, and couples. A significant portion of Ms. Tarry’s work has been conducted in marginalized communities with survivors of intergenerational trauma, as well as with professionals in search of a fulfilling life.
As a writer and speaker for several publications — which once included one of the nation’s largest online medical news outlets in the Black community, BlackDoctor.org — Tarry has effectively demonstrated anecdotal evidence that therapy works and that mindfulness is a holistic way of healing oneself on a continuous basis. Tarry’s work as a mindfulness practitioner has been utilized by professionals in the United States, Asia, and Europe with partnerships through Thrive Global — an Arianna Huffington company — to prevent employees from experiencing workplace burnout. The goal of Tarry’s work is to enlighten, educate and create safe spaces for everyone — from children to the elderly — to live more emotionally empowered and mentally resilient lives. Her upcoming book is called Adulting as a Millennial: A Guide to Everything Your Parents Didn’t Teach You.
