About Me

Each day is an opportunity to make changes, and you have taken a courageous first step in seeking help. Hello and welcome! My name is Tamala and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have a two MS degrees, Psychology and Counseling, and have completed extensive graduate work in separation and loss and substance abuse.
I have been working in the field of Counseling and Psychology since 2006, and have experience with individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and diverse populations. I have provided counseling services in an inpatient hospital, outpatient substance abuse clinic, school system, adult and juvenile correctional facility, and with military families. I use Solution Focused Therapy; this approach focuses on solution building by utilizing your current resources to generate feelings of optimism and confidence in your choices.

I am encouraging, open-minded, and interactive. I consider the therapeutic experience as a collaboration between the therapist and client. I believe that change is constant, and everything we encounter in life requires personal resiliency. I am here to help you build your personal resiliency. I look forward to working with you.
