Tammy Blackard Cook
—Not currently accepting new clients—
For more than 25 years, Tammy has worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) specializing in therapy with adults. She holds a Master’s Degree in social work from the University of Chicago. Throughout her career, she has successfully helped clients struggling with a wide range of issues, though she has a particular interest and expertise in working with trauma and anxiety.
Tammy will work with you as an interactive, solution-focused therapist. She believes the relationship between the client and therapist is primary, and she works from a strengths-based and mindfulness-based perspective.
She is a Certified Daring Way Facilitator for Brené Brown’s The Daring Way™ work. In addition, Tammy is a certified practitioner in the Trauma Resiliency Model® (TRM), which is a mind-body approach that focuses on the biological basis of trauma and the automatic, defensive ways that the human body responds when faced with perceived threats to self and others. These certifications reinforce her ability to help clients build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they seek, as well as increase their resiliency and personal resources. In 2020, Tammy trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which she now uses to help clients reprocess traumatic and distressing life experiences. EMDR also allows her clients to incorporate more positive beliefs and feelings to help them move forward in their lives.
