“Tamara Ridge, LMFT has provided us with the knowledge and tools to be able to discern the difference between fear based / victim thinking and empowered thinking. She has educated us on how to recognize these dynamics in friendships, working environments, families, and social groups as well as in romantic relationships. Tamara has assisted in teaching us how to reconnect to our intuitive selves so that we can trust our own judgment. We no longer feel compelled to rely on outside sources to know what is best for us. She has helped us develop the ability to run a ‘self diagnostic’ when we are troubled. We are able to identify emotional pain as a cue for our internal ‘warning system’ and troubleshoot the source of our doubts or misgivings. The self-sufficiency this has provided us gives ‘living green’ a whole new meaning.”

“Tamara’s affect on my life has been monumental. If she can get through my cynical, crusty, old hide . . . . she surely will start a revolution! What amazes me about Tamara is that she has such an impact on everyone who meets her, without even trying. Truly, Tamara walks the walk! She has single-handedly renewed my faith in humankind. I now believe it is possible for someone to talk the talk, walk the walk, AND not be a boring, bland person to be around! There is life within spirituality!”

“I came from a rather intensive abuse background. When I got out, I worked on and got a Marriage Family Therapist license. But I still needed more help. I found Tamara able to go where other therapists can’t. In my experience, she is a warm and wise guide with many helpful tools. She doesn’t just talk. She can also work with issues that have become imbedded in you, that is your body. If you are serious about resolving traumas and troubles, then she is probably a good fit for you. I heartily recommend her.”
– Walter T., Marriage & Family Therapist
”I recognized many of my own struggles as a woman through Tamara’s example from stories in her own life. Her proactive invitation to respond to what I learned about myself inspires me to return again and again to her teachings. Tamara brings hope for all women who wish to overcome those struggles that are uniquely ours as women.”

“As a survivor I have many triggers. One trigger that I had was hearing the garage door going up or down. When my husband was here I knew that when I heard that door go up that meant he was home and the terror began. So for a while every time that door moved I was triggered. But one day I shared my fear of the garage door on Twitter and Tamara Ridge, LMFT saw it and sent me a link to one of her posts on triggers. Her act of kindness helped me tremendously and I am no longer triggered by the sound of the garage door. I want to send a heartfelt thanks to Tamara Ridge, LMFT for her act of kindness that helped this survivor make a giant step toward healing. I defeated that fear with her help.”

“Tamara has been a blessing in my mental health care. When I first met Tamara I was angry, ashamed and mentally broken. I felt I was worthless and wanted to end life. She listened, she worried, she called for medical help when she knew I would hurt myself and was there for me when I was ready to start talking about the abuse I had suffered. She never judged me but guided me through the most painful experiences in order to help me heal from my awful trauma. I know I would not have been able to become the successful person I am today if I had not had Tamara as my therapist. Her knowledge of human healing is through compassion and therapeutic skill. Thanks to Tamara I completed my educational goals, finally earning my Doctorate. I can not thank her enough for helping me heal from a life of horrific trauma of abuse. I am a healthy person who knows happiness and lives without guilt, shame or fear. Thanks Tamara for my life! If you need a compassionate mental health or personal therapist, I recommend Tamara without reservation.”
