Tanishia A. Johnson is a Spiritual Life Coach and Transformational Speaker who believes that in order to fully live our divine purpose, we must know who we are. This requires knowing who God is within and doing our work with self-love. Becoming a teen mother at 16 years old, flexed more of her resilience; knowing that God had called her to do incredible work. She felt further moved to trailblaze given her less than supportive high school counselor who told her trade schools would be her best and only option even after she expressed her desire to attend college. She graduated high school, on time, with honors, receiving a scholarship award to support her vision. She became the first in her family to graduate from college with her Bachelor's in Psychology and Master's in Counseling, both from The College at Brockport. She moved on to a stellar career as School Counselor for over 13 years, supporting diverse K-12 students and families across urban school districts and dedicating specialized supportive services to expectant and parenting students. She shares her story of struggle, hope, and success as contributing author in the book: The Journey of a Teenage Mother. Her commitment to supporting students continued through her decade of service as a Professor supporting first-year students at the community college level.
She founded Beyond This Month Life Coaching and Business Consulting LLC in 2013 to support individuals and organizations looking to discover and create purposeful visions. She is a Certified Spiritual Life Coach; a graduate of the Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development, founded by, one of her Spiritual Teachers, Iyanla Vanzant.
