Fara Tucker

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW

Sometimes it seems like you're just observing life, but not really living it. You have a nagging feeling that more is possible... if only you weren't held back--by fear, self-doubt, or perfectionism. You are so tired--of taking care of everyone except yourself; of looking to others for validation; of not even knowing what you want, let alone being willing to ask for it. You long for intimacy, but when someone gets close, it terrifies you. Sometimes you feel like you don't even really know yourself.
You want to be kinder to yourself; take more risks; find connection; get out of your own way and LIVE already! Though you may not believe it, you are whole and don't need fixing. However, sometimes we need help finding what we've lost, forgotten, or can't see.
Together we can search for that authentic "you" who is waiting to break free of all that holds her back. I incorporate mindfulness, creativity, compassion, and connection to support you in stepping into your fullest self. Visit my website to learn more or to schedule your free 30-minute consultation.
