Tanya Wilson,
Graduate Intern

Life's journey can sometimes feel overshadowed by the weight of our past, with traumas and wounds influencing our present. But remember, we are not defined by what happened to us, but by what we choose to become. Tanya Wilson understands this intimately. As a trauma survivor herself, she transformed her pain into purpose, finding solace and direction through counseling. Today, she's on a mission to be that guiding light for others, helping them transition from feeling like victims to emerging as victors.

With a rich tapestry of life experiences, from running a Christian school in Ecuador to traveling the world, Tanya brings a unique, holistic approach to counseling. She believes in addressing the mind, body, spirit, background, and community to truly understand and catalyze change. As a soon-to-be graduate from Grand Canyon University with a deep passion for art and a zest for life, Tanya's journey is a testament to resilience and transformation.

Meet Tanya Wilson: Your Beacon of Hope in Healing and Transformation

At Anew Counseling DFW, we recognize the profound impact trauma can have on one's life, shaping perceptions, relationships, and even one's sense of self. But trauma doesn't have to be a life sentence. With the right guidance, healing is within reach, and Tanya Wilson is dedicated to being that guiding light for you.

The journey to healing begins with a simple step: a free 15-minute conversation with Tanya. This initial chat is more than just an introduction; it's an opportunity for you to feel understood, to get a glimpse of the therapeutic process, and to ascertain if Tanya's approach aligns with your healing journey.

From there, the path to recovery unfolds. In your sessions with Tanya, you'll delve deep into the roots of your trauma, understanding its manifestations and working towards healing.


Drawing from a holistic perspective, Tanya believes in addressing every facet of an individual - mind, body, spirit, background, and community. With evidence-based therapies tailored just for you, she'll guide you in integrating your past, so it becomes a source of strength, not pain.

Tanya's mission is clear: to help you rise above your trauma, to empower you to lead a life filled with purpose, joy, and meaningful connections. You're not bound by your past; a brighter, healed future awaits, and Tanya is here to walk that journey with you.

We are not what happened to us, but what we choose to become.

Many times, our pasts can seem to haunt us; our traumas and wounds follow us into current life, affecting our relationship with ourselves and others. But there is hope to change the pattern and the narrative of our life. Healing trauma helps us move from victim to victor.

My Story

As someone who has also experienced trauma, I remember feeling alone in my issues and I struggled to move forward in my relationships. That all began to change when I sought help through counseling. My therapist was a light bearer and helped guide me in redirecting my life. I was so moved by the experience, I knew I wanted to be able to do the same for others. Life can sometimes feel like a dark, lonely journey. My desire is to walk along-side you in your healing, providing a safe place for you to be seen and heard, and promote change.

About Me

I am currently a Master’s level student at Grand Canyon University, set to graduate in June of 2024. I have my Bachelor’s in Fine Arts with a concentration in painting. I’ve been married for over 15 years and have a joyous daughter, brought into this world through the marvel of Invitro. My husband and I spent 5 years living in Ecuador, South America running a private Christian school, working with a children’s home, and the local church. We love to travel! Some of my favorite places I’ve been so far have include the Galapagos for the marine life and Buenos Aries, Argentina for the steak!

Why Work With Me

I approach counseling from a holistic perspective. Each individual is unique, so in order to understand and change your specific struggles, we have to address multiple perspectives- mind, body, spirit, background, and community. I also view counseling as a collaborative effort.


Together we can discover the patterns holding you back, build your repertoire of healthy coping skills, and integrate the past so you can leave it where it belongs.
