In Person and Telehealth

Hi!  I’m Tami. I work with clients from a holistic and growth mindset perspective, meaning we look at all the parts of your life and how they are affecting you and aim for growth, not perfection.  We work on YOUR goals at a pace comfortable to YOU!  I believe therapy should feel like a value add on your life journey.  If you are looking to find more peace and purpose in your life, I can help.

I am a Licensed Social Worker, dedicated to assisting others in their pursuit of a more fulfilling life.  I earned a Bachelor’s in Psychology (1995) and a Master’s of Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh (1998).  Since that time, I have worked in a variety of settings with a variety of clients: children, teens, and adults in research, outpatient mental health, residential treatment and independent living.

While I have worked with adults with Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, personality disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Depression, and various anxiety disorders, the bulk of my experience has been with children and teens, struggling with ADHD, Autism, mood disorders, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder and trauma.

Currently, I work with children, teens, and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism, family system unrest, couple’s conflicts, and parenting difficulties.  I provide parent-coaching and family therapy for those folks wishing to achieve a more harmonious home environment.  I utilize a wide array of modalities such as CBT, DBT, Play Therapy, mindfulness & Art Therapy, to assist you in ultimately progressing toward YOUR goals.

I believe the impact of a child’s family environment is key to achieving positive outcomes for children that struggle with neurodiversity or behavioral challenges and therefore, working with parents is often required to see behavioral change.  By supporting the family and making changes to the child’s environment, we can transform the home environment for every family member, making it more peaceful, supportive, and enjoyable.

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and dog, being outdoors, reading, and volunteering for a local substance prevention organization.
