I offer warm and compassionate individual and couples therapy services. I am here to meet you, wherever you are in your process of internal discovery. I will provide a safe space for you to show up to gain practical tools and to build a greater understanding of your internal states. My background as a wxman who is both First-Generation and Fifth-Generation-American has given me strong insight into what it means to straddle cultures, identities, and inconsistencies. If you have experienced the feeling of “not belonging” in a society that values binary labels, I may be the right fit for you.

'Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?' - Mary Oliver. Choosing a therapist can be an intimidating process and reaching out for help can be uncomfortable, but we all need support in order to thrive. Within a warm, open and compassionate environment, my practice helps clients make sense of the challenges they face and use this understanding to navigate their lives with increased resilience and grace.

There are many reasons to begin therapy. No issue is too small or unworthy of consideration and care. Sometimes the stated reasons for seeking therapy are beacons for something deeper, which may or may not be related to the present problem. Together, we can focus on alleviating distress in the short term while beginning the more in-depth process of addressing issues at their core. In this process, many of the people I work with discover what is most important to them, what can be changed, and what can be actualized within their relationships and career.

Thank you for taking the time for yourself to understand how therapy can help aid and assist you at this time in your life. I hope that I can give you a sense of myself and style and how I may be a good fit in supporting you in such a process. In my private practice, I specialize in working with individual adults, older teens, and couples. I practice from a psychodynamic and relational modality in which I am mindful of where you come from and the ways in which you have learned to adapt to each environment and relationship around you, including the relationship that we form. I also enjoy integrating mindfulness practice.

I have been living and working in SF for 25 years and understand how challenging and rewarding it can be; it's important to find balance. Processing emotions, thoughts and experiences with a therapist can help you move through life with fluidity. I help people gain perspective on unhelpful thoughts and behaviors, to learn what your feelings have to say, and to define your personal system of meaning by looking compassionately at your relationship to your body, relationships and career. Authenticity is being at home in your body which allows you to express yourself clearly; studies show authenticity is closely linked to happiness.

You're looking for a therapist and you're wondering if I might be a good fit. It might help to know that I'm a straightforward, perceptive, and non-judgmental practitioner. The therapy I provide is not one-size-fits-all, but instead is collaborative and customized to your specific needs and way of being. I'll ask questions and engage in dialogue with you throughout the process. By providing thoughtful, individual focus to you as you tackle patterns of living that no longer work, we'll discover new areas for growth and healing.

Therapy isn’t easy — but it doesn’t have to be joyless. If you’re looking for a therapist who can delve into the dark stuff with both the compassionate support and the sense of humor that it deserves, you’ve come to the right place. I work with women and LGBTQ+ folks on a range of issues, from managing depression and anxiety, to improving self-esteem, to healing from a past trauma or loss. Many of my clients have experienced violence in an intimate relationship, and I have specialized training to support survivors of domestic violence so that they can move forward in their lives and their relationships with others.

Coming from a holistic, mind-body, humanistic, compassionate perspective, I work with clients who desire to improve the quality of their lives, reducing stress and emotional pain. Clients may suffer from loneliness, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety or loss. They may need help with communication awareness, grounding methods, self-care, sexual fulfillment or life purpose. These conditions are more normal than abnormal, while sometimes feeling overwhelming. I invite clients to listen to and trust their innate wisdom, guiding them to identify and move through the obstacles preventing them from living their life to the fullest.

My style is direct, transparent and positive. All work is supported by solid psychodynamic theory. I am comfortable with challenges. Most of my clients come in to address relationship issues, career and life-stage transitions, depression and anxiety. However, I have considerable experience in areas of disordered eating, addiction, and (Complex)PTSD. I believe that in order for successful transformational work to occur, the therapeutic relationship is central. Therefore, I offer an initial free 20 minute meeting to test for the ineffable 'fit.' I am a private practice out-of-network provider. WEBSITE: tamaratuckermft.com

This human experience is at times daunting. Even welcomed life transitions can leave us feeling untethered. You may be struggling to feel comfortable in your own skin, find deeper connection in your relationships, or knowing your place in this world. I believe in the innate wisdom each individual possesses. I will accompany you into this lifelong process of returning to your sense of self. We come to know ourselves more fully through our relationships even as the discoveries may be startling or disorienting. Through these explorations you will find a deepened connection with what you ardently seek.

People come to see me when they feel challenged by life circumstances, by depression, anxiety, or because they know that life holds more for them than they are currently experiencing. We can come to understand the roots of these experiences and to see where the blocks are to either living a life that feels like your own, or being more of yourself in the life that you have. I have found there to be a wide range of people who feel comfortable working with me, quite varied with regard to gender, age, stage of life, cultural background and sexual orientation.
