About Tara Green, LCSW

My approach to therapy: All good therapy is built on a trusting and connected relationship between me and the person sitting in front of me. I work to develop a foundation of trust so my clients feel confident that they are in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space to take risks, explore, and challenge themselves. I take a gentle, yet direct approach- meeting my clients where they are emotionally, while also providing honest observations during our time together.

My background: Over 20 years experience in the mental health field, provided years of service in the school system in New Jersey working with families, while running a private psychotherapy practice where I worked extensively with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, family relationship difficulties, parenting and more! I am currently practicing in Charlotte, NC my new home town doing in person and telehealth visits!

It can feel overwhelming sometimes when we reach a point in our lives when we say to ourselves; I think I want and/or need counseling.

It sounds like your daughter is under a lot of pressure! Sometimes the students who are the highest achievers tend to put a lot of pressure on themselves to stay at a 4.0 and to maintain an image they have of themselves or think they should have of themselves!
