As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), my practice is rooted in a compassionate, strength-based, and goal-focused approach. For over 20 years, I have had the privilege of working with many diverse populations while helping individuals, couples, and families navigate through many of life's challenges. My expertise lies in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, anxiety, depression, addiction, and trauma. My journey as a therapist has been guided by a commitment to understanding each client's unique experiences and strengths. I believe in creating a supportive and nonjudgmental environment where clients feel safe to explore their thoughts and emotions. I empower my clients to overcome their challenges and achieve their personal goals by focusing on individual strengths. My goal-focused approach ensures that therapy is structured and purposeful, with clear objectives and measurable outcomes. Throughout my career, I have continually sought to expand my knowledge and skills to provide the best possible care. I integrate evidence-based practices and tailor my therapeutic interventions to meet each client's specific needs. Whether working with someone struggling with the complexities of ADHD, the overwhelming nature of anxiety, the grip of addiction, the deep wounds of trauma, or the heaviness of depression, my approach remains consistent: compassionate, client-centered, and dedicated to fostering resilience and healing.

Whether there has been a significant loss, a life transition, relational conflict, or daily stressors, we all need support during difficult times. Sometimes, however, a trained professional can help navigate these challenges and assist in facilitating positive change. We aren’t always able to recognize the underlying cause of our discomfort or find ways to overcome life’s challenges. In a therapeutic setting, we will work together to discover healthier ways for you to deal with life’s struggles, make desired changes, improve relationships, and find inner healing. Seeking therapy can be viewed as an investment in yourself. Improving mental and emotional health is as important as one’s physical health. My role is to provide a safe space and come alongside you on your journey. I work with adolescents and adults and provide individual, couples, and family counseling services. I treat depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, (PTSD), relationship issues, parenting, behavioral concerns, and many other problems affecting how we feel and operate in the world.

TaMara brings a wealth of experience in an unconventional way. As a former owner of a home healthcare company, that primarily provided services to the elderly, TaMara found herself assisting families, particularly adult children, who had to make tough healthcare and financial decisions for their parent(s). She helped families establish goals on how best to support their parents in maintaining dignity and independence while simultaneously identifying the next steps in the event of their parents’ passing. While families had to come to terms with the physical, mental, and/or psychological changes seen in their parents, taking on the parental role was quite emotionally challenging for adult children. TaMara supported the entire family in managing these delicate issues.
