Tajah Schall MA, LPC, R-DMT, is a somatic psychotherapist & dance/movement therapist whose private practice is located in Denver, CO. She is a social justice counselor who is fiercely committed to examining her own identities, both of privilege and marginalization. As a counselor, she works to uplift and validate the experiences of folks in marginalized locations, and to support folks in privileged locations to recognize and “spend down” their privilege without getting stuck in shame or sucked into a savior complex. Tajah specializes in working with interracial and multicultural couples and families.

Tajah is on the faculty at Naropa University in the MA Clinical Mental Health Counseling: Somatic Counseling department and is passionate about supporting student counselors-in-training in developing their awareness of sociocultural identities of privilege and marginalization, with a goal of better being able to engage in an authentic therapeutic relationship across differences.

Along with her business partner Deb Silver, Tajah also does organizational consulting work which integrates somatic and mindfulness practices with understanding intersectionality, and actively recognizing and interrupting oppression.
