Tamara James, MSW, EMDR therapist

Savoy

Tamara James is a therapist in our Savoy office. She recently moved from Iowa, where she was a licensed social worker and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC). Tamara received her MSW from the University of Northern Iowa where she specialized in trauma processing and trauma-informed care. Tamara is an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Trained Therapist. This modality has been especially helpful for clients who have experienced trauma, but can be used for other mental health diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, etc. She has also received training in facilitating Trauma-Restorative Yoga in both individual and group sessions. Tamara believes that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to therapy, and will collaboratively work with individuals to tailor their mental health services to meet their needs.
