Hi! I’m Tara. I help queer folks recover from stress, anxiety, religious trauma, and relationship issues. I also love to help people who are coming out later in life. I’m into self-compassion, and balancing boundaries with deep connection. I believe laughter is healing, tears can be restorative, and swearing can be cathartic (sometimes all in one session!). I am a queer-identified, secular therapist. Check out my website, Taramcgrath.com for more info. You can book an intro call with me directly on my site. Let’s chat.
My focus is on helping members of the LGBTQ+ community. Many of my clients are trans or nonbinary. I have a special interest in helping folks who are recovering from the adverse effects of religion. As someone who is both EXvangelical and a queer survivor of purity culture, I have a perspective that my clients often appreciate.
I am here, ready to meet you, and I want to help. I know it can be anxiety-provoking to take that next step. AND you’ll be so glad you did. Please reach out today. Even if I am not the right fit for you, I can possibly connect you with someone who is. Call, email, or you can book a free consult directly on my website, taramcgrath.com.

I primarily work with my client to address anxiety, depression, to find an integrated sense of identity, and to heal religious harm. I help my clients develop self compassion and understanding, so they can carry themselves forward with the kindness they deserve but maybe didn't receive. We look at the past for context and understanding, but also implement practical change in the present.
