Hello beautiful. I am Ta’lor L. Pinkston, The Heart Advocate. I am a Self-love Activist, Speaker and Therapist who is dedicated to the hearts of every woman. In 2015, I suffered from depression while I was pregnant with my daughter. At the time, I had just received my Master’s in Social Work; I was living in a one-bedroom apartment, low-income, unmarried, in a toxic relationship and I was fired from my employer while on an unpaid maternity leave.

I lost my value, my self-care, and my self-worth.

I hated myself for bringing my daughter into a world that I did not prepare to have her in but when she was born, I was reminded of my strength. During the first year of her life, I knew that I was putting more effort into my relationship than I was putting into myself and I was done with the bullshit.

I was settling for less than what my heart + soul desires and for the first time I admitted to myself that I did not love myself. In 2016, I enrolled in the Path of Self-love school and recevied my certification in the Foundations of Self-love.

Mission Statement

To help women defy fear, self-doubt, insecurity, shame/blame, and guilt by prioritizing self-love, mental health, healing.


For every woman and girl to know her worth and become a Heart Advocate.

Self-love is about choosing to accept, trust, celebrate, take care of and be compassionate wit yourself; to honor, respect, advocate for self, and to be honest about who you are and who you are not. Will you make the commitment to Become a Heart Advocate?

I am Safe-Space for Every Woman

  • transitioning from high school to college
  • a college student struggling with dating/relationships, self-confidence, and/or body acceptance

  • a feminist fighting for equality + equity and intersection acceptance

  • went through a break up + divorce

I am here for your heart.
