you can be a heart advocate

In 2015, I began laying the foundation for The Heart Advocate. I was beginning to choose myself, to never settle in relationships, to express my thoughts and feelings, and build my self-worth.

I received my certification in The Foundations of Self-love, through the Path of Self-love school in 2017. As The Heart Advocate, I provide workshops, programs, and self-love sessions [available virtually] and have a FREE virtual support group on Facebook called, Healing Over Everything™ (scroll down to learn more about H.O.E.).

Since 2017, I have made the choice to advocate for myself, and now, I want to help you to advocate for your heart.

By choosing self-love and including yourself on your to-do list, you can cope with mental health, grief and loss, defy your Inner Bullies, and choose healing.

The Heart Advocate is dedicated to helping you choose self-love as a coping skill for mental health and healing. I take self-love with me everywhere I go, so if I am presenting, speaking, or facilitating a workshop, you are in a judgement free zone and safe space. All services are accessible, no matter your sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, socioeconomic status, religion, age, or disability; you are welcome here. I want to be your safe-space.

-Ta’lor L. Pinkston, The Heart Advocate

What is a Heart Advocate

I know that you have desires personally, professionally, and in your relationships. You may have ignored the desires of your heart for fear of disappointing others, a lack of self-worth, or doubting your abilities; I know that I have. The Heart Advocate™, is dedicated to helping you (transgender, non-binary/non-gender, and cisgender) defy negative thoughts and self-talk by advocating for your heart and learning to choose self-love as a coping skill.

There are 5 things that make you a Heart Advocate:

  1. Choosing not to settle
  2. Manifesting relationships rooted in the 4 Things You Need to Have a Healthy Relationship
  3. Holding yourself and your community accountable for making self-love choices
  4. Practicing self-love as a coping skill for mental health and healing
  5. Advocating for self-love as a movement

The Heart Advocate™ provides a self-love program [Foundations of Self-love, certified through the Path of Self-love], individual Self-love Sessions, workshops and facilitates presentations on the importance of self-love in mental health, why Self-care Matters, and creating Relationship Goals.


The Foundations of Self-love program seeks to help you practice self-love by choosing to never settle, be honest about your choices, and to know your worth by focusing on the 10 branches of self-love ae (provided by the Path of Self-love). The Heart Advocate will guide you in becoming your own Heart Advocate and help you make the active choice to commit to what your heart.
