“Tara believed in me, and helped my family when it felt like no one else did.”
“Therapy was a very helpful experience and Tara made some practical and valuable suggestions for further work on our relationships.”
“Coming to therapy was a life changing experience.”
“Tara understood my issues in a way that helped me move forward with my healing and my life.”
“Therapy helped me find new tools and ideas that really work in my relationship with myself and my partner.”
“I felt very safe and opened up to Tara at a time when it was hard to trust anyone.”
“My son was full of anger and hating the world. We were than set up to see Tara as a family. My husband and I needed to know how to discipline this child and how to come together as a family. Tara is very nice and listens to what everyone has to say. Tara doesn’t say you have to do this, or you have to do that. What Tara did do for our family was bring us together as a unit. We did little exercises in Tara’s sessions, we learned how to communicate together. This was amazing and nice for me, my husband and I got a lot out of that and it showed us where we were lacking in our relationship. Tara also guided us in how to handle and discipline our little guy who acts like a teenager at times. The most important thing that we learned as parents is that routine and structure are so important. Following the guidance of Tara really helped my stress level go down also. Remember we as parents are not perfect, we just have to follow are own rules.
He has come a long way and all thanks goes to Tara for getting my son to be more open and helping our family communicate as a unit. The way Tara works is fun and very productive. Tara doesn’t ridicule you or make you feel shame. Tara is easy to talk to and really hears what you have to say, as at times, teenagers need someone other than their parents to talk to them. I would recommend Tara and, if needed, would see Tara again. Thanks Tara, you were our lifesaver and you were there for our family.”
