About Me

Thank you for visiting my page. The fact that you're here means that you're ready for something in your life to change and you're looking for guidance about how to bring that desire to fruition. I hope after viewing my profile that I seem like a good fit to walk alongside you on this new path you'd like to make in life. It's always an honor when someone confides and trusts in me enough to help them through deeply private and painful life experiences.

A little more about me: My specialty is working family caregivers, older adults and aging issues (including dementia). I have over 10 years of experience working with these populations.

I am in the process of shifting my clinical focus to Adults with Depression and Anxiety. I use cognitive behavioral therapy to provide some relief for these conditions. I am specifically trained in the TEAM framework and I am a Level 1 TEAM-CBT certified clinician.

I also have experience and interest in supporting adults with post partum issues, chronic health conditions, grief and loss, and life transition. 

My demeanor in sessions is warm, open and down to earth. I enjoy using humor in sessions whenever appropriate. I'm very solution oriented and work with people towards achieving the changes they're seeking in their lives in order to feel happier and healthier.

Whether you ultimately decide to speak with me or someone else, I'd like to acknowledge what an accomplishment it is to be where you're at already. Looking for a therapist on Better Help in and of itself means you've already started the beginnings of something new. You're on a great path already, one full of promise and hope. I wish you peace and happiness however you continue move forward.

I have been working with Tara for a few months now. Right off the bat, I felt like she genuinely heard me, and cared about what I was/am going through. I’ve seen many therapists throughout my life, and I can say confidently that Tara has been the best. The understanding she conveys, and her demeanor and approach to working with me, have all made it so that I’m looking forward to our weekly session, and I definitely feel like we’ve made real progress on the issues I am going through. So grateful for Tara, and I highly recommend her!

Tara has been so supportive as I work through my challenges. She's a great listener and she helps me understand my feelings and experiences in a different context, guiding me to grow and better understand myself and what I need. I'm so glad to be working with her.

Written by S.A. on Apr 08, 2021 after therapy with Tara for 2 weeks on issues concerning grief

Tara has been an immense support through a tough time and I appreciate her willingness to listen, to empathize as well as to offer strategies to deal with what I’m going through. She has it in her instincts to be caring and that is what is most admirable in her. I am so lucky to have been able to find Tara and share my grief at such a difficult time.

Work with me!
