My name is Tamara Ljubisic, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor through the State of Texas.
My graduate work in Counseling was done at Dallas Baptist University.  My undergraduate work focused on a double major in Business Management & Psychology.

I have since continued to grow professionally by attending trainings, workshops, certification courses and additional post graduate work.  My area of specialization is primarily sexuality and the abatement of trauma.  I am committed to supporting people in experiencing life fully.

It is my desire to make a difference in the lives of those I work with mind, body & spirit.  I do not think healing occurs in a bubble and treat people as whole, multifaceted beings.  I look at all of you and offer a 3D approach to your goals.  With a focus on ‘mind,’ this speaks to my formal training as well as informal learning, to walk with you as you explore the opportunity to grow.  With a focus on ‘body’, it is important to recognize that our body is as much a vehicle to change as our mind.  I continue to study tools and interventions that are complementary to talk therapy.  Sometimes, people need to be heard and not to get stuck in ‘the story’.  Change can happen in many ways, often though, it requires doing something different.

‘Spirit’ is vital as it is my belief that we are not ‘soulless’ creatures that are born for a human experience but truly a dynamic mind-body-spirit interplay that requires balance to experience true peace and freedom.  It may be in the form of religion or spiritual exploration, I honor the path you are on and will work with you where you are.

When I work with people, it is often because a crisis has occurred and the pain of that situation is greater than resources available.  My training is diverse in that I have worked in non profit agencies: Jewish Family Services & The Turning Point, PHP/IOP settings at Meier Clinics and in private practice.  What I have learned is that we all face difficult or stagnant times, no one person has all the answers and having a safe place to process thoughts and feelings does make a difference.  It has been a blessing to do my own work towards wholeness and I never ask something I am not or have not been willing to do personally.
