"Tamara is so easy to talk to. It’s like she is a friend. I will just be word vomiting getting things out and she catches something I say and gives me techniques to work on it. I never see her write anything down, but the next week she will ask me are the techniques working. I have worked with several counselors over the last 40 years and she is the absolute BEST! I wish I had found her years ago. Highly recommend!"
Tamara did a great job of ushering me through a challenging time. While I'm not out of the woods yet, she gave me the fundamental items to focus on that have allowed me to heal at a much quicker pace than I would on my own. She listens well, gives decisive advice/perspective and uplifts when possible. I'm grateful for Tamara for sharing her support and wisdom with me.

" I was always skeptical of therapy, but Tamara provides a safe space and enables you to relax and feel comfortable. Since then, I have recommended her to my friends."
"I'm very thankful with Tamara for helping me when I most needed the help. She listen to me and gave me solutions."
Is therapy right for me?
Working with a therapist can help to provide clarity, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges. Therapy can help manage many types of issues including depression, anxiety, anger, grief, stress management, and other life transitions. Thus, therapy is right for those willing to take the first courageous step, towards recovering balance in their lives.
How long will I be in therapy?
That depends of the severity of your situation, your restorative effort, and your level of improvement.
Is virtual therapy just as good as meeting in a regular office?
Yes! virtual therapy (Telehealth) is just as effective as being in an office. And it also allows you to receive services in the comfort of your home, or anywhere you have a steady, private internet connection.
Are the counseling sessions kept private?
Yes! All sessions are kept strictly confidential in accordance to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. (HIPPA) regulations. However, situations that can allow a break in confidentiality, is when a client is a threat to himself/herself or others. In such cases, a therapist must notify the person in danger or notify someone who can keep the client safe.
What if I miss my appointment?
We accommodate schedule changes upon availability, provided we are given a minimum 48-hour notice for cancellations. Missed appointments and cancellations occurring less than 48-hours prior to your scheduled appointment, will be charged the full session rate.
Do you take insurance or private-pay? We are not in network with insurance companies, but we can provide you with a super bill for possible insurance reimbursement. Subsequently, insurance providers require that a diagnosis be made in order to pay for your therapy sessions. This results in the diagnosis becoming a part of your permanent medical record. Further, insurance is able to control how much therapy you get, how often you have it, and how much they want to pay towards each session. They may also request case reviews or case notes, which further limits your confidentiality. Our current rates are $95 for the initial assessment and $85 for 50-60 minutes of therapy, which is currently reduced by 25%. We understand people are financially constrained, and we want to make mental health services affordable for those in need. However, starting January 2nd of 2023, our rates will return to the regular fee of $125 for the initial assessment and $115 for 50-60 minutes of therapy. Any client starting services before then will remain at the current rates.
