Tara specializes in ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, and in addressing common issues that lead to conflict and stress within families. Tara provides evidence-based treatment with a focus on family systems therapy. She works collaboratively with all members of the family using a team approach, as well as communicating with schools and other service providers as needed to enhance treatment gains.
