Thanks for taking the time to read my profile! My name is Tarin Bickford and I've been a clinical social worker for more than two decades. In that time, I've worked with children and adults dealing with a wide-variety of issues such as trauma, addiction, mental health concerns, intimate partner violence, PTSD and child abuse (as well as many other life-altering issues). My approach to therapy is multi-faceted and I incorporate many modalities into my work (although I primarily use cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment and solution-focused therapy).
Life can be so challenging and I commend you for taking the first step toward a better future. Engaging in the therapeutic process opens windows and doors you didn't even realize were closed. Together we can work on anything that is troubling you so that you can enjoy life to the fullest. I want to help you become the best version of yourself and will do this by fostering a therapeutic relationship built on mutual respect, trust and an abundance of kindness.
You deserve to be safe, happy and well-treated. Let's work together to turn your life into exactly what you want it to be.

She is amazing, easy to talk to and makes me feel extremely comfortable. This is the first time I've ever talked to a therapist and I wish I would've done it 10+ years ago if I knew it would be like this.

Taking takes the time to listen to my concerns, get to know me and understand the roots of things that I struggle with

Tarin is a very educated and advocating person who does an amazing job at listening, offering suggestions or feedback, and makes it clear that she genuinely cares about her patients mental health and personal lives. I find her understanding of issues related to people of color as well as the impact of being a person of mixed race very comprehensive and helpful. I have had issues in the past where therapists didn't understand the racial aspects to situations we may need to discuss and she both holds space for such conversations as well as doing everything in her power to make sure she has the resources or support for people struggling with those issues. I find that she is one of my favorite therapists I've ever had, regardless of the short period of working with her so far. Keep on the good work! Much love!
