Tamara Hirsch

Psychotherapy

Life is often punctuated by unforeseen setbacks and hardships. Therapy can help us navigate these moments.

Tamara’s psychotherapeutic approach is based upon the trusting and supportive relationships that she builds with her clients. She is committed to truly understanding each unique individual as they gain greater emotional awareness, confidence, and self-acceptance. After graduate school, she completed a post-graduate fellowship in the department of outpatient psychiatry at Children’s Hospital in Boston. She then acquired over a decade of experience working in outpatient clinics, psychiatric hospitals, schools, juvenile court and crisis centers to help hundreds of clients improve emotional awareness, heal from life’s challenges, increase happiness and confidence, and strengthen relationships. She opened her own private practice seven years ago.

What Clients Are Saying

I have been meeting with Tamara for a year and a half now for individual counseling regarding a troubled marriage. Her warmth, compassion, intelligence, and humor have helped me through what has been one of the most challenging times of my adult life. I feel very fortunate to have found her and consider her an exceptional therapist.

My family worked with Tamara after my husband’s sudden death. She was incredible at involving and engaging all of my five children in each session. From my seven year old daughter to my thirteen year old son and all my children in between, we would always leave each session feeling better. Through creative games, pointed child centered questions and fun activities, Tamara helped our family understand and learn to feel better about the loss, the anger and the emptiness of our grief. We are very grateful to have been able to have Tamara help guide us in our healing.

My husband and I were struggling with our 5 year old son’s behavior. Out household felt out of control and we were desperate for some direction. Tamara has helped guide us in the right direction through parent coaching and support. With her help and our hard work as home, we have seen huge improvements in our son and our household is a more peaceful environment.
