Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Tamar Springer, LCSW, is a licensed psychotherapist and certified sex therapist with 16 years of experience in helping individuals, couples and families explore their relationships through counseling and education. Her approach is both psychodynamic and behavioral, which means participants talk some about the past, but more about the present and the future. Insights from exploration of family dynamics and past experiences are used to illuminate behavior and motivation, which enables effective change to occur through solution-focused, behavioral techniques.

Tamar focuses on building skills for successful relationships through effective communication and conflict resolution; through examination of ineffective but familiar behaviors and patterns of relating; and by encouraging each individual to take responsibility for his or her role in the situation that is causing pain or conflict. Tamar’s areas of focus include pre-marital and relationship counseling, sexuality concerns, parent coaching, post-partum depression, and counseling and support for all aspects of divorce.
