10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in the state of Texas. I have over 10 years experience working in a variety of settings, including but not limited to inpatient psychiatric hospitals and outpatient therapy. My specialties are codependency and addictions related issues. My goal is to help each person be free of any addiction whether it be to drugs, alcohol, gambling, shopping or pornography. I have helped many couples work through these issues which were destroying their relationships with others. My counseling style is client centered and respectful. My approach is warm and interactive and tailored to fit each client's current issue. I do not believe in a cookie cutter approach and believe each person's experience in life (negative and positive) affect our rational and irrational beliefs about the world and sometimes these can be identified and positively changed if possible. I commend each client's willingness to take the courage to find a more fulling life which is built upon their individual purpose in life. If you are ready to take that step, please let me know how I can support you in these positive steps. My goal is to provide the support you need to live the life you want. Sometimes change can be painful but it need not be debilitating. Sometimes finding a supportive counselor is necessary to work through these life changes. I look forward to working with you!

I treat a range of relationship issues: couples and marital problems, infidelity, family problems, and child-parent problems. I practice therapy with brief, solution-focused goals.

My approach combines person-centered, and systems oriented therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Inner peace is something that many of us seek, but sometimes we feel stuck in unhealthy patterns of thinking and behavior (that’s often handed to us early on) that make life feel challenging. Building awareness of our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors can open the doorway to practicing new ways of being in the world that cultivates inner peace. This is the journey that I seek to help others on. I especially enjoy working with those seeking to cultivate healthy relationships with themselves and others, those going through spiritual transitions and healing religious trauma, and those in the LGBTQ+ community. In my work, I often help clients tease out the unhealthy messages they may have internalized from cultural and familial dynamics. My hope for the clients that I work with is that, through deepening awareness and boldly trying new perspectives and behaviors, they will bit by bit begin to see true positive change in their emotional experiences and relationships.

My name is Tammi Green. I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Counseling and Crisis Trauma from Liberty University and a Masters in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University. I use an eclectic approach to counseling to match the best method possible to the person and situations they are facing. This includes cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, client-centered, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, emotional coaching, and Christian based approaches. I have experience with working with all age groups from 0 to 80+ that have faced a variety of struggles from attachment disorders, ADHD and ADD, Autism, suicidal ideation, transition struggles, family counseling, low self-esteem, anger, ODD, substance use, prison transition, anxiety, trauma, depression, PTSD, emotional identification, parenting, care givers and burn out, behavioral issues, and people and families facing health issues. I am very much a person centered therapist meaning each person’s struggles are unique to them and I match my treatments to that person not a theory.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Saint Charles?

Saint Charles therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Saint Charles counselor?

Before seeing your Saint Charles therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Saint Charles.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Saint Charles licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Saint Charles counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Saint Charles, Idaho can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Saint Charles has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
