About me

Hi, there! My name is Tamra Priestley and I am a clinical mental health counselor (CMHC) living in Utah. I am also a Life Coach, specializing in the essentials of self-mastery, and relationships. It is my passion to help people have successful relationships, first with themselves, and then with others. It has been a joy to help those who are seeking to learn skills necessary for successful relationships! Most people just don’t know how! I have also been privileged to help many individuals overcome the devastating effects of anxiety and depression. I experienced this devastation myself and no longer suffer from those emotions. I want to help you learn how to live more peaceful, productive, and happy lives. I have also worked with many individuals who have experienced pain from trauma and abuse in all the ways that can happen. This leads to lack of motivation, poor self-esteem, lack of confidence, depression and anxiety. Trauma and abuse may affect every part of your life until healing occurs. I want to help you heal those parts of your past.

My experience includes working in three private practices (now my own) and for a company providing services to their employees, including first responders and law enforcement and their families. I have worked with the elderly experiencing end-of-life issues. I love working with people from all walks of life. Each person is so important! Drawing from my own experiences as a single parent, a son who has several challenges, adoption, divorce, abuse, and many other experiences helps me to utilize my professional training in a way that is personal and effective. I believe in homework that helps you grow beyond the sessions.

I welcome the opportunity to help you in your current challenges to find meaning and purpose, learn new skills, and experience a healed and happier life!

I am so grateful to have found Tammy as my therapist. She has been absolutely amazing in helping me navigate and manage my anxiety. Tammy's expertise and compassionate approach have made a world of difference in my life. She creates a safe and welcoming space for me to express my thoughts and emotions without judgment. Tammy's guidance and practical strategies have empowered me to confront my anxiety head-on and develop effective coping mechanisms. Her dedication and genuine care for my well-being are truly commendable. I cannot recommend Tammy enough for anyone seeking a therapist who is not only knowledgeable but also truly invested in their clients' mental health journey. Thank you, Tammy, for your incredible support and for making such a positive impact on my life!

Coming from another licensed therapist, Tamra is excellent at what she does! I've had three sessions with her so far and she is already teaching me so much that I've been able to pass on to my own clients as I also heal. I'm so grateful I was assigned to her!
