About Me

I believe that despite a person who has family/ friends to consult with, that the value of therapy is having an objective person's eyes and ears on your struggles and that the process can help you move forward when you are feeling "stuck." Identifying your strengths and ideal solutions are part of a treatment plan that helps us stay focused and determine how effective therapy is in your life. Additionally, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy mode I use to discover what thoughts, feelings and belief systems are at play in feeling "stuck," and produces new ideas about approaching your issues. I am now very excited about implementing the use of a fairly new mode of therapy known as "ACT" that stands for "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy". People walk through this self-discovery process not because it's easy, but to feel better, lighter and more effective in navigating their lives. For the best therapeutic outcome, there needs to be trust and respect between the client and the therapist. I encourage any and all questions to see if we could be a good fit!

I have recently decided to add to my bio by specifically letting potential clients know that most of my professional career as a therapist has been in working with sex offenders, their families and victims, as well as having expertise in domestic violence issues.
Additionally, (and on a bigger scale as these issues are becoming more pervasive now that the pattern is clearly identified), I am working very hard with individual clients experiencing Narcissistic Abuse. There seems to be a growing need for attention to these specific problems and a need for professional who has a lot of experience in addressing these issue. It should also be noted that if someone is in need of sex offender therapy, they must have successfully completed a legally recognized program first.

In my private time I enjoy growing organic gardens and cooking with them, playing outdoors in every season- skiing, camping, and especially taking care of my dog, Jack. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to discover healthier and more authentic ways of relating to people, especially ourselves.

Tamra (Tami) is an amazing therapist. She responds quickly to messages, and she really gets to the heart of the matter of the issues I have experienced. She is a compassionate and kind person who has guided me through a difficult struggle in my life.

I would have to say that this has been the most beneficial experience with therapy that I've ever had. Though I do miss the personal contact of in person sessions, the fact that I'm able to message anytime and to get responses back far outweighs the personal experience.

The video sessions are more personal than the written messages and are good to form trust and a therapeutic relationship. Frankly, I find this combination much more useful to me than just weekly sessions in person, where I'm just on my own for the rest of the week.

Tami has given me several tools that have helped me very much. She is very good about responding. I don't expect it every day even though I message everyday. I'm simply writing my own thoughts and feelings about what I'm going through and I wouldn't expect an immediate response but hope that she would take the time to think about what I'm saying, focusing on those things which might be most important.

The things that Tami does bring out of what I might say or write have been the most important to focus on or to elaborate on them because each time they have led to greater discoveries.

Overall, in the short time I've been using this service, I'm very impressed and have already mentioned Betterhelp to a few others, which isn't something I would do unless I am truly impressed with what I'm receiving from the service.

Work with me!
