About Me

Children and adolescents have a completely different set of stressors to manage, while also managing some of the same concerns adults are facing. Changes in family structure, stress in the family environment, stress from classes and peers at school, bullying, and the over stimulation and negative behaviors stemming from increased access to technology. Adolescents are trying to survive in a time when they are constantly bombarded with technology and multiple messages from media that can at times be very confusing. In addition, parents are trying to navigate a world with their children that is completely different that the world they grew up in - even if in the same town.

I have worked with adolescents in differing capacities over the past 15 years and have found the importance of creating a safe space for them to express themselves, find structure in a chaotic environment, and feel empowered to take charge of their lives and responsibility for their own actions. I have worked diligently with adolescents to teach the importance of setting and maintaining appropriate boundaries as well as assisting with improving communication with family.

My counseling style is open, non-judgmental, caring, and warm. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion and make it a goal to always meet people where they are on their journey of wellness and healing. I utilize interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy to assist people with finding the peace they need to move their life forward.

You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a therapist to work through day to day emotions and problem solving is incredibly beneficial for most and a very big difference from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages throughout the day (at least 2-3 times minimally), seven days per week. I offer messaging, live chat, and phone sessions with availability in the evenings and weekends and limited availability during the business day. Please note that what is showing on my calendar may not reflect my only availability so please feel free to always check that out with me through messaging first.

My daughter Miranda has been interacting with Tara, and she seems quite positive about things. I have my first session soon, so will have more productive comments after that. But I so appreciate your asking!

Tara is great at relating and making us feel "normal". She asks GREAT questions and is able to really take the lead in sessions when needed. Otherwise, she encourages us to identify and discuss our needs. I would highly recommend her.

She is Absolutely Amazing!!!!

She’s awesome, super easy to talk to about anything from rough day at work to dealing with “big” issues. Very helpful and pushes just enough to make you think and work on things you’ve talked about but not too much as to make you uncomfortable! 13/10 would recommend Tara for sure, kind, sweet, fun, smart, caring, and willing to call you one your bs if needed lol.

Tara has been a very good listener, provides very useful advise. In the past I have felt that other counselors have not worked out but Tara makes me feel like we’ve know each other for years. In 2 sessions I feel like my confidence, is slowly coming back. I can say I slowly feel like myself again.

Tara is extremely caring and supportive. I have a hard time finding counselors that I "click" with, but Tara is amazing!
