She truly understands trauma and understands how important processing trauma is. She is experienced in IFS work which has been shown to be incredibly helpful in helping people navigate recovery. Often times those who suffer from chronic relapse have not dealt with their trauma and may be continuing to suffer because of this.

Tarra also has extensive experience with “Brainspotting.” Brainspotting is a technique that can target specific issues using bilateral sound. This helps access an emotional part of the brain. In addition, she has training with the “Comprehensive Resource Model.” This model helps clients get in touch with their inner child and heal through strength and compassion.
