Tammy Watson

Counselor, MA, APC

Children and adolescents face problems that are specific to their age group. With my twenty years of experience as an educator and principal and therapeutic skills, I strive to help children and their parents with these particular issues. I also specialize in empowering individuals, families, and groups to set and accomplish mental, emotional and health goals.

 

Clients will work towards resolving problems and learning new skills in a supportive and confidential environment where they can talk openly and honestly. I focus on the whole person (mind, body, and spirt) in order to aide clients in getting a proper balance in life.

As a former teacher, assistant principal, and current principal, I have twenty years of first-hand knowledge of the stresses that students face on a daily basis. For example, academic performances, test anxiety, bullying, and peer pressure are just some of the plagues that face our youth.

 

Additionally, I provide a safe and caring environment that promotes and encourages clients to discuss their feelings. I help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; and promote behavior change and optimal mental health.

Pre-Licensed Professional, MS, RD, LD

I want to help you heal! Approaching overall mental health and wellness from an integrated perspective, I work diligently to help people of all types find victory over challenges that seem overwhelming. From depression and anxiety to body image and weight loss difficulties to family dynamics and parenting to self-esteem and mind-body wellness, I am compelled to share the hopes of a new life with my clients. If you feel you have searched around every corner and fallen short of goals for this life, I can provide a unique approach to being the best you you can be.

I have been a wellness and health professional for over 20 years, working with large corporations, municipalities, families, and individuals to identify obstacles on the road to recovery. I blend therapeutic concepts and holistic principles in an integrated mindfulness approach to help you find happiness and joy.

With all that I am, I am driven to help others be well. My strongest desire is to see people heal and thrive. Come walk with me on this journey.
