My Approach to Helping
My name is Tamara Hines and I am a Georgia-based licensed professional counselor. I have worked with teens, young adults, parents, and families for almost a decade in the counseling field. I have experience helping individuals with a broad range of concerns including coping with life transitions, depression, anxiety, parenting issues, self-esteem, family conflict, anger management, stress, forgiveness, relationship issues, childhood trauma, and career challenges. I am so grateful that I can do this work and am passionate about actively enhancing your quality of life.
My therapy style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. I use an integrative therapeutic approach to ensure that techniques are beneficial in addressing each client’s specific mental health goal. I will tailor our sessions and treatment plan to meet your unique needs. Collaboration is essential on this journey. I truly believe that YOU are the expert in your life. My desire is to assist you with interpersonal changes, healing, and growth. You have already taken one step; may I encourage you to take another? If you are looking for a professional to walk with you on your journey toward wellness, I would love to work with you!
When working with clients I like to model our journey as a road trip. There is a clear and agreed destination with several stops along the way. The client is always the driver and I am there to help guide and point out different views that the client may have missed if heshe was taking this trip alone. There are some stops that may take longer than others, but all stops are essential to reaching our destination in a healthy and safe way. I believe the professional relationship between the client and the clinician is extremely important, so I consistently maintain an environment that allows the client to be honest regarding the counseling experience and progress.
