    About Me

    Who I Am
    Thanks for stopping by! My name is Tara Green, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20 years of experience in the mental health field in both North Carolina and New Jersey. New to the Charlotte, NC area, I am happy to be offering my services in both the Queen City and surrounding areas as well as continuing to serve New Jersey via tele-health services!

    Before relocating to North Carolina, I spent many years providing mental health services to families and children in the New Jersey School system. Alongside my work in the school system, I had a small private psychotherapy practice where I worked with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, family relationships, parenting, relationship stressors and many other life challenges. I look forward to continuing this work!

    Who You Are
    You want to live your best life, but are just not sure how to get there. You’re feeling lonely, overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed. You may be struggling as a working mom or single parent. You may be juggling children, work, and your dating life. You could even be facing challenges adjusting to your new blended family or a relocation.

    Do any of these sound like you? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Transitional periods can cause feelings of intense loneliness, anxiety, depression, and impact our self-esteem and self-worth, but you don’t have to go through these transitions alone.

    I believe that the mind, body, and soul connection is vital to our overall wellness. I believe that the relationship between you and your therapist plays an integral role in achieving your goals in therapy. Most importantly, I believe that most people want to feel better about themselves, develop quality relationships, and engage in meaningful experiences without being in their own way – I can help you get there.

    My Mission
    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.

    Areas of specialty include, but are not limited to: anxiety, depression, loneliness, feeling overwhelmed, difficulty setting boundaries, and transitions and adjustments including divorce, blended families, relocation, job loss, college students, major life changes, and job stress.

    Therapy Modalities: CBT – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness approach, Goal-Oriented and Solution-Focused, Person-Centered, Holistic approach, Wellness approach with a focus on exercise and mindful nutrition for overall wellness.

    Who you are

    Are you lonely or overwhelmed? Are you struggling as a working mom, or maybe trying to manage as a single parent – juggling children, a job and trying to date? Are you secure in your new blended family? Did you lose your job, move or relocate? These and other issues of transition can cause feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression and impact self-esteem.

    If you are motivated to make lasting changes in your life and want to improve your quality of life I can help. I believe in the mind, body and soul connection as well as know the importance of a good relationship between you and your therapist and how vital this relationship is in achieving a desired outcome in therapy. Most people want to feel better about themselves and have quality relationships, and engage in meaningful experiences without getting in their own way. Do you want to live your best life but just not sure how to get there?

    Who I am

    My approach to therapy: I believe in the importance of the connection between me, the therapist, and the person sitting in front of me. It is so important to lay a foundation for a trusting environment and relationship for anyone to want to share their feelings with another person, especially in a therapeutic setting! Therefore, my clients need to feel they are in a non – judgmental and safe zone when we work together. I meet my client wherever they are emotionally. My approach is gentle; however, at the same time, I will take a direct approach with my clients, being honest with any observations made together.

    My areas of interests are but not limited to: anyone who may be experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, loneliness, feeling overwhelmed, or difficulty setting boundaries and goals due to any transitions in life like parenting, divorce, blended families, relocation, job loss, college students, major life changes, and job stress to name a few.

    Modalities: CBT, mindfulness approach, goal-oriented, person-centered, holistic approach, wellness approach with importance on exercise and mindful nutrition.
