Welcome to BetterHelp!
Sometimes life's adversities call for a little guidance. It takes a strong person to initiate support to share their innermost thoughts and feelings. I'm proud of people who seek support. I have been providing unconditional caring support to my clients throughout my career. Some people like cowboy boots and others like sneakers. It depends on how they fit, right? I believe this is also true when looking for a counselor...it has to be the right fit! Here is a little bit about me that may help you decide if I am a good fit for you.
My name is Tammy Fellows and I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CMHC) in the state of New Mexico. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, NM in 1998, and my Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Eastern New Mexico University in 2005.
I have over 14 years of experience working with children as young as two years old to adults. Working with teenagers has always held a special place in my heart. I was a partner at a private practice for eight years, and recently sold my shares to relocate to Florida. My biggest clientele were teenagers. I also enjoy working with parents so that they can coexist with their child through their teenage years. No one said it would be easy to raise a teenager, and there isn't a manual for parents as they journey through the teenage years with their child. I can help with that!
I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I am well versed in the struggle with anxiety, depression, anger management, ADHD, behavioral concerns, self-esteem, and grief. Something that one of my professors told me that still resonates with me today is that we, as counselors don't have a magic wand, but we are guiders and educators as we assist our clients through life's adversities, so that they may learn tools that they can use for the rest of their lives, because there are, and will always be life's adversities.
My therapeutic style involves helping you to gain insight, strategies, and tools that you can begin to use immediately. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, Grief Counseling, and Person-Centered Therapy. I utilize several modalities, as it is important to me to, again find what fits best with my clients.
I appreciate you taking the time to read my profile, and hope that I am a good fit for you as you begin your journey in counseling. I am looking forward to working with you.

I also have experience in Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, ADHD

Tammy is a great listener. I feel very heard and supported in our sessions. I can tell she cares. She has suggested a lot of great strategies and tactics to help with my self doubt and negative self talk. She's wonderful.
It's been a good experience for me. I appreciate the feedback that she has to offer.
Tammy is a wonderful listener, an experienced coach and provides invaluable tools and ideas to help support our family and our daughter with ADHD. We have tried several counselors in the past, but teencounseling.com & TeenCounseling.com hit the nail on the head on the first recommendation. Additionally, this has been an enormous support that we can utilize the services remotely, given the current climate we are living in. We couldn't be more pleased with Tammy and with this company.
