Tara is very good at “meeting me where I am” in any given session. She is an acute listener. During our first meeting, and at my request, Tara told me about her clinical background. I was impressed with the depth and variety of her professional experience. I recommend Tara as a therapist for these reasons, and because she has a profound respect for the patient’s evaluation of his or her life.
