Tammara’s theoretical perspective is a faith-based, systemic lens and integrative approach which includes family systems theory, trauma-informed, solution-focused, and client-centered interventions: Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Bowens Family Systems Theory (BFST).
Tammara utilizes these techniques and interventions to assist her clients with processing their issues, but first she provides a support space built on active listening, empathy, unconditional positive regard, and compassion to establish a healthy rapport and relationship. Tammara’s goal is for clients to utilize their inner strength and knowledge to foster their healing and growth.
