About

Dr Tamara Ford

Hello! My name is Dr. Tamara Ford and I look forward to working together and supporting you as we talk through your experiences. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina and Board Certified in TeleMental Health. I have worked in the healthcare field for over 25 years with clients from a broad range of concerns including anxiety, depression, mood swings, emotional distress, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, difficult family dynamics, poor communication styles, discrimination in the workplace, and the community.

I hope to create a space where you feel heard, supported, encouraged, and seen and where you can openly share your story. My goal is to cultivate a warm and inviting atmosphere, judgment-free, and focused completely on your needs. My philosophy is that every client has strength and solutions for their life experiences when provided with the appropriate tools that are within each of us. It is vital to explore the elements of empowerment to help overcome difficult circumstances.

My counseling style demonstrates genuineness, empathy, respect, patience, and client-centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect and dignity and demonstrating compassion and being responsive to the needs of others. I enjoy working with all people that seek to make a difference. If you are ready to move forward and take the next step in seeking a self-empowerment lifestyle, I would be honored to assist you in your journey.

I look forward to working with you.
