Tara Lynn Robinson, LPC

Trauma Therapist
Tara’s therapy approach is to help build greater capacity for one’s emotional life and relationships. Tara has a passion for working with individuals struggling with chemical dependency, and eating disorders. She works through a trauma lens to uncover the root of the issue. Therapy is about many things, often our emotional suffering and the possibility of transforming it. A single incident trauma as well as tough childhood experiences can often be held so deep within us, they are impossible to reach with our rational mind. Tara uses EMDR in addition to traditional therapy as it tends to make the most beneficial impact for my clients. Her goal is to help clients achieve health, balance, and harmony to embrace life. One of Tara’s priorities is to make her clients feel safe in the room to be their true authentic selves, so deep-seeded feelings of shame no longer block healing. Together they explore the deeper issues that have been hidden for so long and work to learn strategies for managing difficult times while gaining a better sense of clarity and well-being.
