About Me

ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Tammy and if you are exploring Better Help than you must be struggling with something that you would like to discuss with someone who is outside your circle of friends and family. Sometimes we need someone outside our circle of support because they may know to much about us, they may be bios, judgmental, or the problem may even concern issues with them. Well, I am here to help you! The first thing I would encourage you to do is find the best counselor for you. It is important that there be a connection of trust between you and your counselor in order to have effective sessions. That being said, I assure you that most counselors will not be offended if “the fit” with a counselor you choose is not right for you and you need to find someone new. We do not take it personal; I promise.

I have been a counselor/therapist for about 13 plus years. I am also a retired Police Officer which I believe gives me a unique advantage to my job and has helped me to become a much better Social Worker for all of my clients in every job I have had. I have worked in a number of environments to include: working with suicide prevention, Substance Abuse Centers, Private practice, our countries Veterans, Hospice, LGBTQ issues, Counselor in a prison setting, in a hospital, and even up in the mountains in a retreat camp for troubled youth. I believe this also provides me the background that has helped me to work with different types of clientele which is great, because we all need help sometimes.

My specialties are Depression, Crisis Intervention, Grief and Loss, and Addiction Issues. While these are my strongest areas of expertise, I have worked with all different types of clients as you can tell from up above. My approach to counseling is mostly client centered and solution focused therapies because I believe if you can’t get the elephant out of the room first, then you can’t get to the “real” issue that actually triggered the event that brought you here to seek for some guidance and relief. I do use may different approaches of course; CBT, EMDR, Mindfulness, motivational interviewing, etc. I believe that it is my job as a counselor to know as much as I can and to continue to learn as much as I can to help my clients. It is my job to be prepared to help any and all clients that need help. My clients would describe me as calm, easy to talk to, nonjudgmental, and a great listener.

I commend you for taking the first step to taking care of yourself and your mental health. I promise you the journey is well worth it!

Tammy uses a very kind approach. She really does care about the job and ensures you are treated with the upmost respect. Tammy creates an open atmosphere where you can talk freely about what you want no matter what the issue is.

Tammy is awesome so far and super down to earth. I feel like I can talk to her about anything and her experience in the field is impressive and really validating. I feel like she is a great fit for myself and she has great insight that allows me to feel safe, heard and understood.
