More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 10
State: VA

My name is Tara Lineberry and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Virginia. I earned by Master's of Social Work degree from the University of Southern California. The majority of my experience as a therapist has been surrounding topics of mental health disorders, addiction, domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, trauma, eating disorders, and self esteem. Throughout my career as a therapist I have learned the importance of establishing a positive therapeutic relationship and how vital it is to have trust in the person you are sharing your most private thoughts and concerns with. I understand that many times all a person needs to get through a difficult situation is a non-biased, non-judgmental sounding board where they can share all of the thoughts and feelings they are experiencing and work through all of these things in a safe space. I am a firm believer that most people already know what they need to do in order to help themselves, but need a therapist to sit with them in a safe space and allow the process of thoughts and feelings. I am also a strong believer in the power of identifying personal strengths to draw upon any time life is difficult.

My counseling style is open, non-judgmental, caring, and warm. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion and make it a goal to always meet people where they are on their journey of wellness and healing. I utilize interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy to assist people with finding the peace they need to move their life forward.

You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a therapist to work through day to day emotions and problem solving is incredibly beneficial for most and a very big difference from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages throughout the day (at least 2-3 times minimally), seven days per week. I offer messaging, live chat, and phone sessions with availability in the evenings and weekends and limited availability during the business day. Please note that what is showing on my calendar may not reflect my only availability so please feel free to always check that out with me through messaging first.

It takes a great deal of strength to reach out for help, so I applaud you in taking that major first step, and look forward to an opportunity to assist you on your journey.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Tara is an exceptional therapist. I’m very thankful for her for helping me through some difficult times in my life.

I have had a rough last few years and I just needed someone to talk to, that wouldn’t judge me, who would help and support me, but also hold me accountable. Tara did just that. I’m able to see things from another perspective and my life seems more manageable. Thank you Tara!!

She is Absolutely Amazing!!!!

A.M.·Sep 30, 2020


She’s awesome, super easy to talk to about anything from rough day at work to dealing with “big” issues. Very helpful and pushes just enough to make you think and work on things you’ve talked about but not too much as to make you uncomfortable! 13/10 would recommend Tara for sure, kind, sweet, fun, smart, caring, and willing to call you one your bs if needed lol.

A.R.·Aug 02, 2020


Tara has been a very good listener, provides very useful advise. In the past I have felt that other counselors have not worked out but Tara makes me feel like we’ve know each other for years. In 2 sessions I feel like my confidence, is slowly coming back. I can say I slowly feel like myself again.

M.A.·Jul 25, 2020


Tara is extremely caring and supportive. I have a hard time finding counselors that I "click" with, but Tara is amazing!
