Tarnisha Gordon

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 10 years in the field. I have a wide range of experience working with individuals, couples, children and families. I typically work with clients diagnosed with depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma disorders, relationship issues, bipolar disorder and life transitions. I bring an integrative approach to my practice, as I believe in taking into account the many views of human functioning. There is no one way to treat all humans. My background is in cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT, family systems and psychodynamic theory, however through the years, I have incorporated many techniques from other treatment modalities into my practice.

I would be a good match for anyone looking for a female, cultural competent therapist of color. I would also be a good match for those looking for a therapist competent in working with LGBTQ individuals. I'm dedicated to building an effective, trusting therapeutic relationship free of judgement or persecution. Thank you for choosing to work with me. I will make it my mission to help you to realize your full potential, so that you may live your best life as you define it.

I am very pleased with my continuing counseling with Tarnisha! She is very timely in her responses, and asks thought-provoking questions to get to the root of my personal challenge.

Ms Gordon has been amazing. She has been very fair and also insightful. She has gently called me out on my own self deception and has been patient with me on it but also has kind of opened my eyes to things other counselors have not.

I haven't been working with Tarnisha very long but I can say that so far she has been the most effective therapist I have had. She's very attentive and knowledgeable. I feel like with her help in this short time I am developing tools to help me down the road with life's challenges.

She is the best of the best. Wouldn't be where I am in my life right now without her. She has helped me tremendously and I feel like myself after years of self-doubt.

She is an amazingly gifted counselor and knew my diagnosis even before I went to see a psychiatrist. She is friendly, warm, and focused on helping you succeed. Strongly recommend her.

Written by T.E. on Apr 28, 2017 after counseling with Tarnisha for 3 weeks lgbt, relationship, grief, and intimacy-related

Tarnisha is very good at getting me, and allowing me, to write honestly and in detail about what concerns me and the things in my past that bother me. She asks thought-provoking questions and is incredibly quick with her responses. I feel that she reads my very long messages very carefully, which I very much appreciate.

She's the best. I wasn't too sure if BetterHelp would be for me but she proved me wrong. She's teaching me so many things about life, I'm beginning to see the me I've been wanting to see for years. She's very nice, very down to earth, and straightforward!
