Tara Topper


About Me

This world can be hard and confusing, but is also beautiful and rewarding! My job as your licensed professional counselor is to help you relate more authentically to yourself, others and the world while making choices for your own safety and growth at the pace that's right for you. I focus on your strengths, reframing limiting beliefs, trusting the wisdom of your feelings, understanding the intelligence of patterns, and relating without judgment.

I got my bachelor's degree from UCLA in psychology and sociology, and my master's degree from Naropa University in Somatic Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in Dance/Movement Therapy. I have a rich relationship with the creative arts and you can always bring your artistic expressions to the counseling session. I have experience working with: individuals, groups, and families; children, youth, and adults; LGBT, religious diversity, and people of color; people recovering from eating disorders; severe trauma; anxiety, depression, OCD.

I look forward to getting to know you and unleashing the life you were meant to have!

I find Tara extremely easy to talk to & would recommend her to anyone going through issues of gender confusion she is my confidant in all the identity problems I have.
