Tanya Stuart is a mental health and substance abuse professional. She began her journey working with troubled adolescents in the criminal justice system.
That began a lifelong search to give children, adolescents, and adults comprehensive and individualized mental health and substance abuse care. She obtained her Master of Social
Work from Southern University at New Orleans in 2002 and then began working in the Child and Adolescent Unit of the New Orleans Adolescent Hospital. Along with being personally
impacted by Hurricane Katrina’s devastation, Tanya wanted to give back to her city. She was a first responder with the National Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration
to the mental health crisis that ensued. She worked with students who were displaced after the storm in the East Baton Rouge Parish School District and provided relief to the community
in crisis. After becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Addiction Counselor, Tanya added working in the Substance Abuse field as a priority. This lead to her administrating
a major substance abuse facility in 2014 in addition to growing her private practice. Now the owner of Genesis/Holistic Solutions Center of Baton Rouge, LLC and owner of Tanya Stuart, Inc., she has specialized
in providing assistance for co-occurring diagnosis, addictions, depression, PTSD, anxiety, anger management, and other behavioral disorder.
In addition to her personal work, Tanya is giving back to the mental health treatment community by becoming a Board Approved Clinical Supervisor in 2009 and Certified Clinical Supervisor in 2015.
She provides supervision for psychiatric residents for Our Lady of the Lake, LMSW's and CIT's, and serves as a liaison for LSU master level students. Recently, she obtained a position as an Adjunct
Professor in the MSW program for LSU’s nationally recognized School of Social Work. Tanya utilizes various modalities in treatment including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based
Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Supportive Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and “Accountability Therapy” to assist and guide clients in reaching their full potential. Her philosophy can be summed up
as, “for individuals to reach happiness and contentment in life, everyone must find a balance in mind, body, and spirit.”
