Announcement icon I am fully trained to offer HIPPA compliant online, phone therapy. I know right now things are scary, we will get through this together.
Step out into freedom and embrace the life you were born to live!! Is fear running your life? Do you hide the “real you” from family & friends? Discover the courage to be who you truly are! Many people dealing with anxiety, depression and gender and sexuality issues feel they are missing out on life. Clients I work with often report feeling alone and afraid to reach out for help. They no longer want to hide who they are, yet also feel stuck moving forward due to lack of support or fear of judgement. My passion is to help you ditch the shame and find freedom to love the person in the mirror despite the opinions of others.
I specialize in helping others, just like you, learn how to love their true selves. I can teach you to quiet the inner critic AND how to ESCAPE the thoughts whispering, “other people’s judgement matters”. Many of my clients feel overwhelmed, crippled by perfectionism, or just generally unsettled.
Hi! I’m Tara and I work with ALL clients, transgender and non-binary clients as well as clients that are feeling overwhelmed and anxious about work, school, home or friends. I’ve also stood on what felt like the edge of a steep cliff, feeling as if I’m going to fall, and yet, found a way to hold on. Call today & let’s get this journey started!!
