“Taking refuge” is a phrase in Buddhism that serves as an invitation to our world-weary self to find relief. From the confusion of life’s dramas and the inevitable pull to get swept up in them. Loving relationships can offer that kind of relief, those in which one feels accepted and seen. And meditation, too: the mind slowing down and opening to its inherent spaciousness. Taking refuge requires building trustworthiness, through a softening and strengthening that happens over time in relationship. That is one of the reasons psychotherapy is effective: The trustworthiness that therapist and client build together allows for a depth of self to be known and expressed. Such encounters with self in turn build trustworthiness within oneself, for as our capacities enlarge, we enlarge. In coming to find safety and solace within, one learns to live less fearfully, participate in relationships with greater authority and ease. As a graduate of Naropa University and longtime Contemplative Psychotherapist, I see psychological healing through a Buddhist Psychology lens: as we open our hearts to ourselves through compassion and insight, we are able to shift and find more flexibility in our conditioned patterns of relating to ourselves and others. To facilitate that opening, I draw from a variety of psychotherapeutic practices and philosophies—Jungian Psychology, Gestalt Psychology, Object Relations Psychology, Rogerian Psychology, Internal Family Relations, and many mindfulness-based interventions such as Hakomi and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I seek to create a warm and compassionate space in which you can explore, understand, and transform your life.

Hi, I'm Tara. I'd like to tell you a little about myself since I will be asking a lot about you! I come from a pretty dysfunctional family background with a lot of addiction and strife. So after I completed undergraduate school, I worked at a residential substance use disorder facility in Virginia, working with families of patient's there. I learned that folk with substance use issues also have depression, anxiety, bi polar disorder, and other mental health and social skill and communication problems. This prompted me to do something I said I would never do...... go back to school. I started Graduate school in 1992 and finished in 1994 and received my MA in Professional Counseling. I worked at a CSB and did my residency there. I took both my CSAC and my LPC with months of one another and was Certified for Substance Abuse Counseling in 2000 and received my LPC in 2001 and started working for myself in February 2001. I work with adolescents, ,college students and adults. When I am not working, I volunteer with a cat rescue group and I take care of "bottle babies" in the spring and raise them until they are old enough to be adopted. I enjoy going to the movies, the theatre, musicals, reading mysteries, watching netflix and prime video and cooking. I love my 7 cats and one dog.(Considering getting 2 pet rats from a rescue). I am very Client Centered, meaning - I don't think the therapy can go very far if there isn't a therapeutic connection. I work with anxiety disorder, substance use disorders, depression, Bi Polar disorder, Parenting . If you do not make yourself a priority, you cannot be the best friend, partner, wife, husband, employee, parent, friend, Truly, I am here to help you in whatever you are experiencing.
