More about me

Licensing: MSSA, LCSW, LISW
Years in Practice: 10
State: VA

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of Virginia and a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW-S) in the State of Ohio. I earned my Master’s of Science in Social Administration from Case Western Reserve University in 1996. I spent over 15 years in a public social service setting working with adolescents and their families. Most recently I have been in a school setting working with middle school aged youth. I have worked with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, behavior problems, and the stress of parenting.

My nonjudgmental, supportive and compassionate nature allows me to build and maintain therapeutic relationships. I have a client centered approach and would enjoy working with you to set both short term and long term goals in therapy. I could help you develop the skills and strategies you’ll need to overcome current and future challenges you may face

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.

Tamara is a kind and wonderful listener that provides valuable guidance through life’s ups and downs.

Tammy is always there to listen and help me find ways to navigate what’s going on. She makes me feel comfortable and never feel like a burden. This was my first therapy experience and she has made it awesome

Tamara is the first therapist I’ve spoken with whom I felt truly cares about me and doesn’t see me as just another client. She always remembers who and what I’m talking about even if we haven’t talked about that person/topic in months. She reaches out to me when I miss sessions. Knowing my dietary restrictions, she’s sent me recipes after hours that she’s looked up and thinks I could eat. I cannot recommend Tamara enough.

Tamara has always been readily available, and always up to date on my current topic of discussion when we chat. She offers very helpful advice, as well as worksheets that help a lot! She is very easy to talk to and I feel comfortable speaking with her

Tamara is lovely to talk to and quickly grasped my concerns from the start. I would recommend her to anyone struggling with anxiety issues.

I would recommend Tamara and have already recommended Betterhelp to everyone I know. I feel like therapy has been helping me so far and I would continue to use it. Tamara has a better understanding of me and I love the fact of the nonjudgmental vibes.
