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™ offers a self-love program [Foundations of Self-love, certified through the Path of Self-love] individual Self-love Sessions, group workshops, and facilitates presentations on the importance of self-love in mental health, why Self-care Matters, and 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.

Guides + Heart Tools – various guides, templates, and journal entries to help you begin to apply self-love into your lifestyle and accept yourself as you journey closer to falling in love with yourself as you are.

self-love: a path. a practice. a choice. christine arylo, the path of self-love

Self-love is not selfish, it is a requirement in wellness + mental health. By making yourself a priority will change what you allow in relationships, how you parent, how you communicate in relationships, how you cope with your mental health, and take care of yourself.

You can break down the walls of fear, self-doubt, self-hate, and insecurity with the 10 branches of self-love, including self-awareness, self-care, self-trust, self-acceptance, and self-forgiveness and I want to support you on your journey towards healing.

Self-love is something that we choose every damn day and you are worthy.
