About Me

It is so hard to ask for help but you have gotten this far, let me help you! My goal is to provide hope and guide you to a more fulfilling future!

My name is Tara and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Behavior Specialist in Pennsylvania, also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) . For the last 6 years, I have worked with children and adolescents with Autism and other mental health disorders and parents managing their children's challenging behavior. This has also included co-parenting difficulties. I have 13 years experience helping people dealing with alcohol and addiction. Also, pre COVID, I volunteered to assist and facilitate activities during the weekend-long (2015-2019)Camp Erin, Philadelphia (Eluna Network), as a cabin ‘Grief Chief', geared toward helping children ages 6-17 process and heal from the death of a loved one. We created a fun and safe atmosphere where the children could express their feelings, tell their stories and memorialize their loved ones.

I believe in treating my clients with dignity, respect and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, trauma-focused (because really- who makes it out of childhood without some kind of trauma!), and psychodynamic therapy.
