A Note from Tara

No matter how broken you feel or how irreparable the damage to your relationship, there is hope for you. The pieces can be reassembled to create a masterpiece more beautiful than you could have imagined. I specialize in helping couples restore connection when it has been lost due to life circumstances, infidelity, and mistrust, in helping people suffering from depression and anxiety regain a sense of hope, and in helping families develop healthy relationships across life’s stages and hardships. My training enables me to work well with people feeling overwhelmed or disconnected from their own emotions and bring awareness to unconscious processes that dictate how we interact with others.

My Bachelor’s degree is in Christian Ministry with a specialization in Counseling from Florida Christian College, now Johnson University, and my Master’s degree is in Counselor Education from Palm Beach Atlantic University with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy. I also have advanced training and am pursuing certification in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, which is the leading form of counseling for couples experiencing distress.

In addition to my clinical training, I have a Bible College education and partnered with my husband in Student Ministry for 12 years. It is my great passion to watch the Scriptures come alive as they are applied to life’s many seasons and challenges. The Lord is always faithful to fulfill his promises! I would be honored to come alongside you on this sacred journey and walk with you to healing and wholeness.

The Proof


Using video chat to talk to my Counselor is brilliant, I was a bit uneasy about this option at first. Now I like being in my surroundings and having the privacy to talk freely.

They made the process so simple and our daughter loved the ability to talk to someone on her phone from the comfort of her room.
