About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Massachusetts. I am also a certified School Adjustment and Guidance Counselor. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults for more than 10 years. I have experience with a variety of mental health and personal issues such as depressive symptoms, symptoms of anxiety and panic, stress management, post-secondary planning as well as other disorders, including executive functioning deficits/ADHD, cognitive disorders, and Autism/Asperger's Syndrome.

Written by A.L. on Dec 08, 2020 after therapy with Tamara for 2 months on issues concerning family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Tamara Nixon is the first therapist that I feel really took interest in me, on a deeper level. Other therapists I went to were focused mainly on my problems, but not at all on my personal interests and hobbies and I feel this is really important in them understanding my personality and my likes/dislikes. Also I appreciate that she is proactive and she sends me things to read and worksheets to work on. I really feel safe with telling her about my issues.

Work with me!
