Tirrany Thurmond, Founder & CEO
We need to get close enough to wrap our arms around those who suffer and affirm their humanity.
IDALTU COUNSELING & CONSULTING LLC
Captivated by the lived experiences of others, their resilience, and will, Tirrany’s career as a therapist is led by a commitment to supporting people as they engage in the meaningful work to (re)define their lives. With empathy, openness, and curiosity, she offers her clients a safe exploratory space to be heard, seen, and affirmed.
Because our personal experiences don’t exist in a vacuum, it’s important for clients to know they aren’t alone in their quest to make meaning and find purpose in some of the most difficult moments of their lives. No one makes it alone, contrary to popular belief. Therefore, in therapy, we will collaborate to strengthen your self-trust and intuitive connection, learn to self-soothe, and expand your emotional vocabulary.

These embodiment tenets guide her work as a therapist. From her immersive time in the Carribbean, South Africa, and Europe, she’s dedicated to creating a culturally-responsive, identity-affirming space that centers the client’s mental and emotional well-being. The hope is to cultivate a space that empowers the help-seeker to thrive.
