Támara holds to one life principle: authenticity. While being interviewed by a #1 ranked national mobile website, she explained: “I’ve always had a somewhat difficult time referring to myself as an “expert” because I strive to remain modest in all I do. I have found that modesty connects me more authentically to families who are suffering.”
While working to help troubled and at risk kids utilize their strengths in the home, school, and community, she became known, internationally, for her passion and dedication to seeing change in their lives.
She strives to not only maintain clarity about the purpose of her own life, but the needs within the lives of parents, families, & caregivers. “Having a strong woman as a mother has inspired me to reach out to other parents and inspire them,” Hill says.

She has learned both practical and professional lessons involving the healthcare system and the various legal, financial, educational, and insurance-related difficulties that challenge families.

What is your counseling approach?
My counseling approach is primarily educative and supportive. But it is also based on loose existential and cognitive behavioral (CBT) principles. Therapy is a reciprocal journey based on the relationship and authentic connection between patient and therapist. My view is based on the concept that humans will experience pain and suffering, anxiety, and depression as well as a desire to live a meaningful and purposeful life. But there is always a way to cope and derive greatness from these things.
