About Me

Hi! My name is Tamera Anderson and I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the state of Ohio. I graduated with my Masters of Social Work from Miami Oxford University in 2016. I currently work as a School Based Therapist working with students K-12. I have 5 years of experience working in community based agencies, helping to empower children, adolescents and collaborate with parents. I recognize a lot of challenges and emotions individuals face could stem from their childhood and or trauma.

My approach is client centered, starting where the client is at. I also focus on strength based approaches, helping you identify your strengths and learn how they can help aid recovery and empowerment. Developing treatment plans for you to help identify goals I believe is beneficial and a helping guide for you and myself when doing therapy. I want to make sure we are reaching your goals. I use empathy, non-judgment and active listening in my sessions. I like to create a safe and confidential space where you can explore your own thoughts, while also seeking and receiving feedback to help you make appropriate decisions. I may also challenge some of your thoughts to help you recognize rational versus irrational thoughts. I use evidence based interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused and Motivational Interviewing to help with the stressors and emotional challenges in your life.

If you are looking for a therapist who is not judgmental, empathetic, patient, passionate about helping you become empowered, happy, confident and help you find greatness within yourself. A therapist who will validate your feelings, challenge you respectfully and praise you when you've made progress towards your goals, I am the therapist for you! I only accept clients who have the ability to do live sessions additional to the writing on the dashboard.

Tamera is straightforward and supportive. She's not afraid of pointing out what to work on and give you the right tools immediately. It is highly personalized just for your unique symptoms and situation! Tamera helped me manage my depression and anxiety and I became more empowered to have more control in my life. I feel a lot happier.

Tamera makes me feel like I'm speaking with a family member. She makes me feel comfortable to tell her exactly what is on my mind while giving me respectful and insightful feedback.

Tamera had been an amazing support for me and has been helpful in getting me to recognize the issues I have and creating ways to stress those issues.

Tamera is the best. She gives advice and talks through things but it feels like talking to a smart friend instead of an authority figure who is looking down on you. I love our conversations and all the ways she gives me to work through my problems.

Tamara has been working with my daughter for only two weeks now, but already I'm seeing some remarkable improvements in her mindset and outlook due to their sessions together. I look forward to continuing to work with her and would highly recommend her.

Tamera was open, friendly and exactly the type of therapist I needed when I went through a rut. She listened to what I said and provided feedback and advice, I jumped right into doing everything we talked about and it's been a great experience. I definitely would recommend her to anyone!

Tamera is a great counselor due to her not only having to listen but she also loves to listen and gives great advice when you really feel like you don't know what to do. She's very helpful when you don't know what to do in your moments of need.
