"Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can." - Arthur Ashe
Tamara is a family therapy-trained Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) offering therapy services through her private practice focused on women, motherhood, life changes/transitions, and anxiety/stress management.
Additionally, Tamara helps those managing allergic diseases, especially parents/caregivers, develop a workable mindset and balance between overwhelm and quality of life. She primarily utilizes a mindfulness-based behavioral approach known as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, but also incorporates other modalities to teach her clients skills that support their own well-being.
Tamara created the Food Allergy Counselor website, which houses the Food Allergy Counselor Directory, Exploring Food Allergy Families podcast, and additional food allergy behavioral health resources to fill an unmet need within the food allergy community. A relationship builder at heart, Tamara is always looking for opportunities to help build and enhance alliances, or take part in projects that lead to positive impacts for patients, communities, and organizations.
"Your page has truly been an inspiration to me and has helped me to deal with some of my fears and not allowing them to stop my child from experiencing life. I’m a work in progress, but you should know your work is wonderful and is really impacting lives!"
-Food allergy mom and behavioral healthcare professional
"Our food allergy group had a truly amazing consultation with Tamara last night. She is a great speaker and all our minds and hearts were full of new empowered information and tools. She’s the real deal. A true helping professional."
-Food Allergy Support Group Leader
"Tamara is such a gift to the food allergy world. 99 percent of living with food allergies is about quality of life but few in the medical field are able to offer this resource. I can’t wait to follow her journey as she continues to influence the world.."
-Therapist and food allergy parent
"Tamara’s professional background as a therapist and personal experience as a food allergy parent is the perfect combo for understanding how to address mental wellness around food allergies. My preschool aged kiddo with severe food allergies opened up about his fears and anxiety over the possibility of having a severe allergic reaction. Tamara strategized and worked with me on a game plan on how to address and calm those fears. Her multifaceted approach was spot on. The worry and fear my kiddo felt has dissipated. Tamara also has a history of driving positive change for the children in our community. Our food allergy affected family is very excited that she is channeling her talent and energy into this cause. We appreciate Tamara and all that she has done to help us is more than she’ll ever know."
