Ms. Támara Hill
Licensed Mental Health Counselor - LPC
Hi, my name is Támara and I am a child and adolescent mental health therapist working primarily with childhood trauma, behavioral, and mood disorders. I am passionate about working with children and adolescents who are struggling with activities of daily living within the home, school, and community. My training over the years has included work within the outpatient (e.g., clinics, hospitals), inpatient ( Diversion and Stabilization programs, residential treatment facilities), and school environments. I also have a history of working with juvenile delinquency and youths who are troubled.
My counseling approach is educational and supportive. I aim to help young clients and their families utilize their resources, their skills, and their passion to “recover” or overcome their challenges. My goal in therapy is to support and educate clients on their diagnosis, treatment options, refer to appropriate sources, and help them know what to expect and how to deal with obstacles appropriately. The goal of each therapy session is to teach coping skills, build insight, motivate self-learning, and encourage independence.
Stress, challenges, and tribulation are a natural part of life. But thankfully, there are “tools” available to help us redirect our attention, our passion, and our strength in appropriate ways. Often, these tools are right inside of us and beyond tangible existence. Sadly, we, as humans, either do not know how to tap into these tools or have lost the ability to access them because daily challenges thwart our perspective. But healing begins when we pursue what truly matters and begin the process of gaining further insight. By using the tools that do not come ready-made through counseling books, theories, or technique, we can take new steps toward a brighter future.
