My name is Tamara Ljubisic and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor by 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.
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 and balance as our mind. I have been studying yoga, nutrition and somatic processing in addition to talk therapy, as it is only a part of the journey. ‘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 a client it is often because a crisis has occurred and the pain of that situation is greater than the 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.
