Tara Redepenning, LMHC
Tara earned her master’s degree in mental health counseling and expressive arts therapy from Lesley University. She is experienced in working with adolescents and adults in school-based, crisis, and community settings. Tara brings a holistic approach to her work using psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based strategies, and stress reduction techniques. Tara has expertise in working with eating disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, adolescents, and college-age transitions. She also has a clinical interest in working with women during pregnancy and the postpartum period, including fostering and adoptive families.
As an expressive arts therapist, Tara is skilled in incorporating art-making, movement, and other creative activities into therapy sessions. This approach can enhance therapeutic work, but is always optional depending on client preference.
Tara takes an active role in the therapeutic process. She strives to create a safe and supportive space to explore thoughts, feelings, relationships, stressors, and strengths.
