About Me

You have the power to change and I can empower you to attain your goals. I am a wife, mother, an all-around outdoor enthusiast and I love to quilt. I genuinely want to know you beyond your concerns. I have worked in the mental health field for almost 15 years and fully licensed as a counselor for 6 years. During this time I have worked with clients experiencing a broad spectrum of issues, which makes me ideally suited to work with you. As a result I like to tell my clients "You cannot scare me off!" I do not shy away from challenges.

I like to take an open and collaborative approach to therapy. I prefer to see the big picture with the positives and negatives identified, then work with to determine the best course of action to help you move forward. I want to find the tools which are perfect for you to apply to your life for the long term. I do believe you are in control of how you think, feel, and act about your life experiences. We will find solutions tailored specific for you to best navigate through life.

My approach combines cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship and sexual issues, parenting issues, pregnancy and peri-natal mood and anxiety disorders (pre and post-partum concerns), foster care and adoptions. I also have experience working with people diagnosed with schizophrenia, schizo-affective, and bipolar disorders; I have even worked with children as young as 5 utilizing play therapy.

I feel comfortable wearing many hats and transitioning between different areas of concern. I am here for you. I will look forward to hearing from you soon.

I am available for live video sessions only on Friday at this time.

Tara is a very empathetic, wise and professional counselor. I have always felt cared for and was not afraid to share anything that was one my mind. She builds trust quickly and has intuitive abilities to understand you. Highly recommended!
