I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of Virginia and a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW-S) in the State of Ohio. I earned my Master’s of Science in Social Administration from Case Western Reserve University in 1996. I spent over 15 years in a public social service setting working with adolescents and their families. Most recently I have been in a school setting working with middle school aged youth. I have worked with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, behavior problems, and the stress of parenting.
My nonjudgmental, supportive and compassionate nature allows me to build and maintain therapeutic relationships. I have a client centered approach and would enjoy working with you to set both short term and long term goals in therapy. I could help you develop the skills and strategies you’ll need to overcome current and future challenges you may face

Tamara is the first therapist I’ve spoken with whom I felt truly cares about me and doesn’t see me as just another client. She always remembers who and what I’m talking about even if we haven’t talked about that person/topic in months. She reaches out to me when I miss sessions. Knowing my dietary restrictions, she’s sent me recipes after hours that she’s looked up and thinks I could eat. I cannot recommend Tamara enough.
She is so kind and understanding while challenging me in the best ways for me
Tamara has always been readily available, and always up to date on my current topic of discussion when we chat. She offers very helpful advice, as well as worksheets that help a lot! She is very easy to talk to and I feel comfortable speaking with her
Tamara is lovely to talk to and quickly grasped my concerns from the start. I would recommend her to anyone struggling with anxiety issues.
I would recommend Tamara and have already recommended Betterhelp to everyone I know. I feel like therapy has been helping me so far and I would continue to use it. Tamara has a better understanding of me and I love the fact of the nonjudgmental vibes.
