Tara received her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology (MSCP) from Chatham University. She is currently working towards licensure as a professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. Her clinical interests include identity development, multicultural concerns, trauma, women’s issues, self-compassion, life transitions, and emotional dysregulation. Tara approaches therapy in various ways, including the theories of humanism, feminism, narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, and DBT (dialectical behavior therapy). She appreciates working with college students as individuals are at a unique stage of development which largely focuses on identity exploration. When Tara is not working, she enjoys various forms of movement, spending time with her dog, watching her favorite shows, and watching Pittsburgh football (H2P and go Steelers!).
