Meet Your Host
Hi, I am Tanya. I have been working in health care for over 25 years. I have witnessed the increase of medications dispensed to teens for mental health issues and am certain that there is a better way.
After interviewing many suicide survivors over the past 2 years and studying the research data, I have been combatting the spike in teen mental health in two ways: focusing my energy on building teen resilience programming while simultaneously using genetic testing to ensure patients get the correct medicine at the right dose so they can heal.

It was one of the best decisions she’s ever made.
Because life’s too short to be held back from pursuing dreams, her passion now is to inspire and coach people to embrace their worth and follow the dreams that fill them with joy so they can live out their true purpose.

After creating what felt like a perfect life, Jeanna realized that she still suffered from the effects of a less-than-perfect childhood. In her loneliness and feelings of inadequacy, she began an alcoholic journey that destroyed everything she had built. She lost her marriage, she gave up her career as a college professor, and mourned the suicide of her son.
Then one morning, hungover and filled with fear, she realized that she didn’t want to live like that anymore. That’s when she decided to make drastic changes to the way she was living. In early recovery, Jeanna set her goal on helping women like her heal from the devastation of alcohol abuse. She now uses her training in Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and Community Reinforcement and Family Training, as well as her experience as a recovering alcoholic and compassionate teacher to help others live the life she has found—a life filled with peace and purpose.
