Mom of Action
More than good intentions.
I wish good intentions were enough in this world. Mom of Action is a place to discover and discuss ways to be deliberate about putting your good intentions into practice.

Someone close to me once referred to me as a "woman of action." My son had recently been diagnosed with SPD and I was on a mission to find the best way to support him and help him reach his full potential. I am diligent in identifying and analyzing sources for optimal spiritual, social, psychological, and physical development for children and families.

I completed a doctorate in education at the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education at the University of California Santa Barbara where my research explored the practices and perspectives of employed graduate student mothers. I also hold two masters degrees, one in clinical psychology, with an emphasis in marriage and family therapy from Pepperdine University's Graduate School of Education and Psychology, and the other in education from UC Santa Barbara.

In the past, I've worked in counseling with children and adolescents with special needs developing and facilitating psychoeducational groups. Clinically, I've worked with adults recovering from drug and alcohol addiction, eating disorders, depression, and anxiety in a residential treatment center. I've been a PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator since 2010. (Contact me if you'd like to take a parenting assessment.)

Education has my heart. I've spent much of my career in education in faculty, staff, and administrative capacities. I teach courses in human development, social psychology, gender roles, and understanding emotions at colleges and universities in southern California.

I'm Tanisha, a teacher, learner, wife, and introverted mother of two. I enjoy baking, quiet time, and deliberate growth.  As a mom of boys, there are three things I need daily: Jesus, strong coffee, and the
LEGO Brick Separator.

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
