About Me

Hi There. Nice to meet you.

My name is Tammy Porter and I am an independently Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Arizona. I have 17 years of community mental health experience, 9 of which includes providing individual, couples, family, and group therapy. I have had the privilege of learning from and working with a diverse range of populations, from the underserved to commercially insured individuals. I have supported people in addressing concerns related to depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, chronic pain, substance use, relationship difficulties, and family discord. My professional goal is to ultimately help people help themselves.

I have been educated and trained in systems theory, viewing individuals as a part of and connected to their larger surroundings. My therapeutic approach is client-centered, strengths based, and trauma informed. I see the best in people and believe that you are the expert of yourself. Other approaches I draw from include; cognitive-behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, schema therapy, Adlerian therapy, and DBT.

Individuals I have worked with have described me as; non-judgmental, empathic, warm, and supportive.

I look forward to working with you!

Tammy and I are off to a great start. She has helped me come to some great insights already. She speaks with concise wisdom and compassion, without judging.
