Hi, I'm Tarsha the founder of Speak Wellness Behavioral Health & Consulting, where it goes down. I am driven to abolish mental health stigma in the BIPOC community! I take the traditional psychoeducation approach and pair it with energy, music, and evidence based practices to educate and empower individuals to engage in their emotional wellness.
I am dedicated to evoking positive change in families and communities through safe spaces. This led me to bridge the gap between the culture of creativity, wellness, and true healing. Bringing a unique restorative experience to executive and community spaces.
Tarsha Wiggins is the founder of Speak Wellness Behavioral Health Consulting, LLC. and has 12 plus years of experience in the field of Behavioral Health. Tarsha is a graduate from the University of Wisconsin Madison where she acquired a Master’s in Social Work in 2009 and completed additional training in 2012 at Aurora University, where she earned a certificate as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor.
One of Tarsha’s greatest strengths is being comfortable having uncomfortable conversations and this has helped her immensely. Tarsha began her journey in the field of Social Services as a Child Protective Worker and moved on to work with individuals in clinical settings. Tarsha has worked with children and adults in several levels of care: Inpatient Hospitalization, Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient Treatment, and Individual Therapy.
During her years of providing direct care Tarsha often witnessed the ravaging effects of untreated mental illness and realized the need to abolish the stigma of mental illness, particularly within communities of color. As a result, in April 2020 Tarsha began working to reduce the stigma of mental illness by partnering with community leaders, utilizing social media outlets and providing training regarding mental illness. Tarsha is dedicated to evoking positive change in families and communities.
