Conversations with Tabria Corprew

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tabria Corprew.

Hi Tabria, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
It started at Columbus State University’s counseling department where I thought I wanted to pursue school counseling, which technically I still am a School Counselor, but decided that I wanted to offer more clinical services as I saw how stigmatized mental health was in the black communities.

My goal then was to work through challenges found in the black community and family systems. I started off working in acute and inpatient hospitals then in university counseling, but I felt a bit unfulfilled in my professional life.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor, and the owner of Compassionate Counseling & Support Services, LLC and Take the Leap Coaching & Consultation, where I offer emotional support to women of color.

My passion for supporting women’s challenges stemmed from my own tragic story of losing my son, Jonah Aspen Corprew, during my pregnancy at 27 weeks. It left me speechless and devastated. Grieving during my postpartum felt like earth side hell. I felt unsupported by my OBGYN at that time and was left with little to no resources on how to navigate grief and loss.

After digging myself out of that hole and beginning my healing process, a part of that journey was to support as many women as I could who may have endured the same pain that I did, so that’s a little bit about how I got to where I am today.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It hasn’t been the easiest, but I can say it has been worth it. I would say at first one of my biggest struggles was watching my client sit across from me in intense emotional pain after experiencing perinatal loss. Sometimes it still feels a bit sore for me, but through therapy and supervision, I learned how to navigate some of those feelings from my loss and use that as a way to drive me to learn more about ways I can continue to support Moms.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am Tabria Corprew, Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor, and the founder of Compassionate Counseling & Support Services, LLC & Take the Leap Coaching & Consultation. I am trained in perinatal mental health from PSI (Postpartum Support International) and an advocate and supporter of perinatal mental health for women of color.

After understanding the racial disparity and unconscious bias in maternal care for women of color, it has been a true passion to break the silence about reproductive racism and redesign what therapy looks like for Women of Color. I also find it important to collaborate and connect with other providers to offer Moms comprehensive services and resources to prevent miscarriages, stillbirths, health & medical issues, lactation challenges and any other maternal challenges Moms may face. After the tragedy of losing my own son, it has become a mission to make women of color and moms of color maternal care and emotional support a priority.

What sets me apart from others in my area of expertise in the area that I serve, is that I am one of the only black providers who is trained in perinatal mental health and who treats women’s challenges in private practice.

I have two proud moments: One being the collaborative event hosted by my practice in March, Mix & Mingle with Mocha Mamas, a mixer among brown and black providers and moms of color who benefited from learning about
different aspects of maternal care and ways to bridge the gap regarding the black maternal health crisis.

Another proud moment was speaking to WTOC, the local news station about Minority Mental Health Awareness month in the capacity that I am in. I was proud to have been afforded the opportunity to speak out about the many challenges women/moms of color face in the United States.

What makes you happy?
Spending time with my family, Marquice, my husband, Nova, my 1-year-old toddler, and Rocky, my fur baby. I love our interactions and all of the unpredictable things that happen in a day with a very busy toddler and funny french bull dog! Nothing is more rewarding than watching the little one you birthed grow into their personality!
