n today's episode, I speak with Tanya Cole-Lesnick, LCSW and coach since 1995. Tanya's practice focuses on group therapy, and how the power of group can transform our therapy experiences. She has extensive experience in outpatient hospital mental health, private practice,
and wellness center settings. From those experiences over the years she has identified her most
important focus—helping people to live lives that light them up. She does this by helping clients to
access and honor their truth, to change habits that don’t serve them, and to heal faulty narratives so
that they are living in alignment inside and out. Her work revolves around intimate groups as the
sharing of inner worlds and being human together in a safe space is what she finds to be the most
powerful way for lives to transform.
