I am originally from California where I received my undergraduate degree at San Francisco State University. My master's degree is from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond VA. My therapy approach is open, compassionate, focused and goal oriented. I am passionate about helping people recognize and build on their strengths to become the very best versions of themselves.

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 $35 to $80 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 has been a wonderful help to me getting through a challenging time. She has helped me to come up with strategies to not only deal with anxiety in the moment, but to reduce my overall stress levels. I am feeling so much better and I know that Tara is a big piece of that.

Tara is a fantastic therapist she offers a variety of methods to pursue what ever it is you are trying to achieve.
