My Approach to Helping

I specialize in helping women recognize & amplify inner resources to recover from trauma, addiction, anxiety, and depression while attending to the important relationships in their lives.

I am present, warm, intuitive, grounded, and appreciative of your unique experience. While I hold an optimistic perspective, I am neither afraid nor hesitant to go into the deepest and darkest places with you. If you feel that you are or have been told you are too intense, too "crazy" or too much, I welcome you in all of your complexities and gifts.

More Info About My Practice

Since 2007, I have used several approaches in my vast toolbox, but lean most on these effective relational approaches within a social-justice framework: Compassion-Focused Therapy, Neurobiologically-Informed Trauma Treatment, Psychodynamic, TranspersonalNon-Dual Awareness Counseling, and Ecopsychology.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Tamara is the CEO and co-founder of Inner Science Institute (InSci), providing courses and events for lifelong learners as well as mental health professionals interested in fulfilling continuing education units. An integrative institute informed by the inner sciences of psychology and spirituality, InSci offers transdisciplinary education and training to those interested in personal transformation, social change, and spiritual awakening. If you want to be engaged in a transformative process that has as much potential to deepen your experience of yourself as it is to learn important clinical skills, go to www.innerscience.net.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

When we work together, I am most interested in your goals and how our connection can help you meet them. What you will notice right from our initial correspondence is that I have a warm personality and care about what is happening in your life. In addition to my in-depth study and expertise in psychotherapy, I am a down-to-earth and compassionate companion to help you find relief from suffering.

I inherently operate personally and professionally with a social justice lens which means that therapy cannot be separated from familial, societal, and religious conditioning we experience as unique beings on this planet. As a mixed-heritage lesbian, I appreciate the ways internalized oppression can show up in our efforts to maintain mental and emotional health.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Most patients are seen once or twice per week. Due to the in-depth nature of my work and the correlation between frequency and efficacy, I do not see patients less than once per week.
