ABOUT

With the right kind of help, traumatic experiences can be transformed into a source of strength and self-love, bringing power to your present and a renewed hope for your future.

Ah, the naiveté of an 18-year-old having an “epiphany” about what she wants to do with her life…. Yes, that was me. A month into my first semester of college and already changing my major. I was going to be a therapist! Interestingly, I never wavered in that desire, though my plan to get there and what I expected that to look like definitely changed. Looking back now, I think the most naive part of my epiphany was that I decided I wanted to be a therapist before I had ever worked with one.

Not to worry… my life fell apart less than a year later and my butt was sitting on a therapist’s couch just a few months after that thanks to a friend who was willing to say to me, “Tara, I think you’re depressed. I think you need to talk to someone.”

My Story

I share that because I think it’s important for you to know that I have sat in the other chair. I still do. 

It’s the other side of a screen now, but you know what I mean. 

I’m certainly not going to claim that “I know how you feel” or “I’ve been where you are,” but what I will tell you is that I have personally experienced what can happen when you commit to working on your “stuff.” It was messy, and hard, and honestly took a few tries before I found the right therapist and the right kind of therapy to really start seeing the changes I was hoping for. 

But I think it has been worth the effort. Seeing how much I changed as a person, and how so many areas of my life improved is a big part of what drives the work that I do - I sincerely hope my clients can experience a similar kind of healing and growth and I truly feel honored being able to witness their transformations. 

I don’t know if I’m the right therapist for you. I don’t know if the kind of therapy I offer is the right fit for you. But if you’re committed to working on your stuff, I’m committed to helping you make that happen. So let’s chat and figure out if I would be a good fit for what you’re looking for - if not, I’ll help connect you to someone who is.
