Tanisha Esperanza

I am an autistic professional supporting neurodivergent adults through a trauma-informed and anti-marginalization lens.


About Tanisha

I am a late diagnosed autistic adult (she/her/hers) whose objective is to reduce internal/external suffering for my fellow neurodivergent adults and increase self-acceptance. I personally understand how alienating, frustrating, and inaccessible the diagnostic and support process for autistic adults can be.

I have spent over 10 years working within the mental health and psychology research fields. I obtained my B.A. in anthropology & sociology/comparative women's studies from Spelman College. In 2019, I obtained my M.A. in psychology from the Catholic University of America. My area of expertise includes working with marginalized and oppressed clients within neurodivergent, LGBTQ+, racial/ethnic communities. I specialize in trauma-informed, feminist/anti-capitalist, and suicidality modalities. I have worked as a suicide prevention specialist, LGBTQ+ and Black psychology consultant, and university disability support specialist (to name a few of my experiences).

My goal is to provide a safe space for my clients to unmask and live authentically. This includes on a client-centered approach of building interpersonal skills, organizing career & academic goals, and building self-confidence.
