Although the world is full of suffering,
it is also full of the overcoming of it.
Meet Tarah Cambron
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Nutritionist, and I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I work with pre-teens, teens, college students, and adults in helping to reduce negative emotions and learn healthier ways to relate to one another. My mental health services include: individual, couples, and family therapy. I also offer nutritional therapy, focusing on the emotional, physical, and nutritional aspects of wellness.
My approach to therapy is eclectic, which means I use a variety of methods to individualize treatment to my clients’ needs. During counseling, I typically use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Conflict Resolution. My background includes working with a variety of issues ranging from abuse, disordered eating, to mental health disorders. I have extensive experience counseling teens and adults who struggle with relationship and self-esteem issues, mood disorders (depression and Bipolar), anxiety, and trauma. I am trained in evidence-based approaches including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) a therapy method used to treat issues such as: anxiety, addiction, grief and loss, and PTSD.
My undergraduate degree in Psychology is from the University of Houston. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with my Masters in Psychology from Houston Baptist University. My practicum studies were completed at Rice University, where I provided counseling services for the students and faculty. After graduate school, I diversified my education in the nutrition and fitness field. In my younger years, I was certified to teach aerobics by AFAA, personal training certified by NASM, and maintain my accreditation as a Certified Nutritionist. With my background in mental, physical, and nutritional health, I am able to counsel my clients from a unique holistic approach.
I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families in a counseling center, as well as a mental health and addictions hospital, providing group counseling. I have worked with clients providing nutritional counseling in both fitness center and in-home environments. In addition, I have facilitated both Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP), addressing mental health, addictions, and adolescent concerns.
Life is busy, but in my free time there are a few things I love to do! I enjoy date nights with my husband of 24 years. Sign me up for any activity with my children (3). Movie day is my favorite way to relax. I spend time with my very cool dog, who is always ready for a jog around the neighborhood. I attempt to squeeze in a few workouts here and there, and still make time to watch my Netflix with my hairless Sphynx cat, Lola. In addition, I am a volunteer for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) and enjoy helping out with bible distribution ministries.
