Meet Our Team


Taliah Williams-Hunter

Founder/Lead Therapist

Women's Therapist, Parenting &
Relationship Counselor

“Purpose Driven Counselor”? Absolutely! Counseling is my passion and my purpose. As a therapist and former school counselor, I possess extensive experience in servicing women, parents, adolescents, at-risk youth, as well as implementing and facilitating mentor programs for young ladies. As a mother of all girls, I am well aware of how critical it is to instill confidence and encourage women to develop a positive self-image. I have personally navigated the challenges of a blended family, co-parenting, and feeling as if you're in it alone. Like you, I thought parenting would have been so much easier if our children entered the world with an instruction manual! However, I am happy to say that solutions and happy endings are possible. 


As a woman, parent, and advocate, I am extremely compassionate and empathetic of the challenges faced by women and parents. My journey and unwavering compassion has given me the sincere joy of dedicating myself to empowering and helping both women and parents. Our journey will assist with enhancing and building healthy relationships- with self and others, family structure, balance, self-esteem, confidence, overcoming various challenges, pursuing new heights, and more. While I am proud of my academic achievements and the wealth of knowledge I have obtained, it is the countless interactions with my clients, students, mentees, and parents that have shaped me into an impassioned clinician.

Your journey towards EMERGING can begin with a single step!

A passionate therapist and certified Life Coach! I am a Detroit Native who has made it my mission to promote mental health awareness and wellness throughout the Detroit Metropolitan Area. I have experience providing services in community mental health, working with children, adolescents, and adults. I have had the privilege of providing counseling services in various settings such as private practice, schools, as well as medical clinics.

As an authentic and dedicated therapist, it is not my desire to tell you what to do, nor how to live, but walk with you as you learn your purpose and journey in life. As my client, I work to make sure you feel seen, heard, valued, and most of all, respected. My specialties include working with those who desire assistance with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Relationships, Self-Esteem/Confidence, Codependency, Grief & Loss, and coping mechanisms for various life situations and transitions.

I am a Detroit Native who recently returned to Michigan. Prior to my return home, I resided in Oklahoma where I attended Langston University. By earning a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling, I am now able to pursue my passion as a Mental Health Therapist.

I possess compassion and a passion for working with “At risk” youth, adolescent boys, men, and individuals in need of a safe space to process feelings and manage their mental health. I consider myself a multicultural therapist, and utilize a variety of methodologies, inclusive of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, Behavioral Strategies, Solution-Focused Therapy, Humanistic and Person Centered Therapy. It is my belief that focusing on the individual and their unique experiences is important to the therapeutic process and truly beneficial to one's mental health.

Aaren Snyder, LMFT 

Accepts clients in Michigan and Ohio

*Accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield, Blue Care Network, United Healthcare, and Private Pay*

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I believe that getting therapy is the basis of great overall health. Often, “mental health” is left out of the equation when considering the overall idea of being healthy. Addressing mental health can benefit an individual in a variety of areas such as their professional, academic, and personal relationships—especially the most important relationship of all—the one you have with yourself.


I specialize in working with couples and families who are experiencing a variety of issues such as communication problems, infidelity, impulse control, trauma, and parenting conflicts. Many families and couples just need a neutral party to help facilitate a conversation between the parties involved. 


I also work with individuals of all ages, genders, sexual orientations, and cultural backgrounds. I consider myself a culturally competent therapist because I am willing to meet client’s where they are and explore their lives to gain a deeper understanding of their problems.
