About me

Family structure, life circumstances, trauma and grief can challenge the way we think and feel. Our emotions are often triggered by these life circumstances causing negative behavioral responses such as anxiety, angry outbursts, obsessive-compulsive disorders, drug addiction, alcoholism, sexual addiction, gambling, depression, and relationship conflict. The consequences of these behaviors cause heartache and pain in our lives and often have adverse effects on the people around us. Therapy can show you how negative behaviors limit your life and prevent you from living your life to the fullest potential.
I have worked in the mental health field for 17 years helping people to discover the best and highest expression of themselves once they are free from destructive hurts, habits and hang-ups. I have a Bachelor's in Psychology, and a Master's in Social Work. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Life Coach, and Drug/Alcohol Counselor.
With guidance you can learn how to effectively communicate with others, manage stress and anxiety, grieve your losses, and explore ways to thrive instead of just survive in life.

She's amazing. It's hard to find someone that really connects with me.

She is a judgmental hypocrite... did not even have a conversation and asked me to change.

Tammy is a beacon for those who struggle internally. I’ve had one session with her and I can tell you right now...she gets it! If you are struggling like I am please reach out(especially to her) there is no weakness in seeking help. Tammy is an amazing person and a kind soul, thank you for all you do!

I’ve learned a lot since working with Tammy. She’s smart and patient, and really helped me “peel back the layers” to discover and feel things I previously thought not possible.

Before starting counseling, I was always unsure about myself. I knew I wanted change, but I wasn’t sure how to go about it or where to even start. Since working with Tammy, I felt as though I have grown as a person. I see a difference in myself and am able to recognize behavioral patterns as well as rethink the negative ones. It really does help to have Tammy walk me through my process.

Tammy is down to earth, easy to talk to, and incredibly knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

I’ve participated in 3 video sessions with Tammy so far and my experience with her has been very positive. I appreciate her direct approach and she seems to really understand my situation and provides great tips and “assignments” to apply to my relationship. She has a way of asking questions that really make me self reflect or see things from a different point of view I may not have otherwise understood.

I've only had one session with Tammy so far and I absolutely love her! She is the perfect therapist for me! She's helping me with a lot of things in my life. She's giving me a new and better perspective and I respect her very much! I look forward to having more sessions with her soon!
