Tamara is among the most effective clinicians I have had the privilege of mentoring. Her compassionate yet direct way of being present to those with whom she works is grounded in her ability to discern the dance of acceptance and change. Her passion for learning and growing as a person and professional is inspiring. Tamara displays an unrelenting commitment to openess and acceptance of her own history. As a result, she has nurtured an ability to be genuinely and authentically responsive to the experiences of those with whom she works. She willingly remains present to the pain of those with whom she sits, while not shying away from doing what is called for - even when doing so evokes distress. As she, herself, has learned, only as we keep present to our pain do we learn new ways of responding - that we are more likely to open up the futures we aspire to create for ourselves and our loved ones.
