Tamra has been in private practice for over fifteen years working with trauma, anxiety, stress and volatile/abusive relationships. Prior to focusing her work on trauma, she worked in the field of high conflict divorce, exploring the impact of attachment on caregiver-child bonds, and deepening her understanding of the trauma of fractured relationships. She has enthusiastically utilized EMDR therapy since beginning her practice and has found it to be a therapy that is not only an invaluable tool for working with trauma, but is more importantly a theory for understanding the framework of resilience, meaning making, and successful clinical work.


As an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, she currently conducts both group and individual consultation for clinicians seeking EMDR certification and consultant status, and is also an active member of EMDRIA’s Standards and Training Committee, working to ensure fidelity throughout EMDR therapy programs. In addition to her private practice and consultation work, she spent several years as a University instructor, teaching graduate level counseling courses on trauma, crisis, development and self care, among others. Her enjoyment of teaching, coupled with her experience and commitment to the field of EMDR therapy, motivated her to become an EMDRIA Approved Trainer so that she could share the practice changing therapy of EMDR with others. She has been training clinicians in this amazing therapy for nearly five years.

Tamra’s teaching style is warm and engaging. She greatly enjoys educating others about EMDR and sharing her enthusiasm for this remarkable therapy.
