About me

Your counseling time with me is a safe space for you to grow and to heal and most importantly, to be you. Beautiful you. Just as you are.

My therapy style is warm and empathetic. I approach the therapy process from a place of compassion, unwavering patience, and a desire to understand your journey and how you got to where you are. Together we will tailor our sessions to meet your unique and specific needs. If you are hurting, I encourage you to trust the counseling process, give yourself some grace, and keep an open mind. Even the strongest of souls can use a bit of support from time to time. I am so happy you are here today!

I have over 8 years experience with the LGBTQ+ community, including gender-minority life experiences.

I have over a decade of experience working in case management with adults on the Autism spectrum and with Asperger's disorder. I am comfortable in conversations where my clients may need extra time to find their words.

Tamara is amazing. She has helped me navigate one of hard times of my life. She was able to very gently and slowly showed me that I was in an abusive relationship and how stand up to my abuser. She listens and is very insightful
