Tamara Vitela, LCSW

Tamara views therapy as a collaboration to create growth despite life challenges and uses the philosophy “people are not their problems.”  Tamara is an LCSW with twenty-five years’ experience in supporting individuals in their healing.  Areas of treatment focus are anxiety, depression, substance abuse recovery, trauma / PTSD related issues, adoption, and identity formation, life, and career transitions, creating healthy relationships, and associated attachment issues including how our past comes up in our present.  Tamara enjoys using narrative therapy (story) in healing past traumatic events and assisting others to “re-author” and reclaim their story.  Tamara explores how global, local, and familial narratives can influence our sense of identity and encourages others to create helpful personal narratives for creating identity even if that differs from the voices of the dominant culture. Tamara graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Utah and a master’s in social work degree from the University of Washington with a specialization in Family Preservation practice.  Tamara completed a post-masters fellowship from The Menninger School of Psychiatry and Mental Health Sciences focused on trauma treatment and associated attachment issues.
