I am licensed in the state of Washington with 8 years of professional work experience with both teens and adults. I have experience in helping clients with a wide range of concerns from stress and anxiety to coping with addictions, overcoming the impact of trauma and abuse, as well as working to improve motivation, self-esteem, and confidence.
I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without the fear of judgment. Some of the modalities that I may utilize are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational interviewing (MI), Compassion focused Therapy (CFT), Eye-movement and Desensitization Therapy (EMDR), and others that may seem appropriate to meet your therapy needs.
It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.

Tara listens with concern and care and is easy to talk to. She shared some great tools to help me deal with the stress and shake off the case of the "gloomies" I was experiencing.
