Hello! I’m TaMara Gray-Phillips

MSMFT, LMFT

TaMara is a licensed marriage and family therapist that brings a wealth of experience in an unconventional way. As a former owner of a home healthcare company that primarily provided services to the elderly, TaMara found herself assisting families, particularly adult children, who had to make tough healthcare and financial decisions for their parent(s). She helped families establish goals on how best to support their parents in maintaining dignity and independence while simultaneously identifying the next steps in the event of their parents’ passing. While families had to come to terms with the physical, mental, and/or psychological changes seen in their parents, taking on the parental role was quite emotionally challenging for adult children. TaMara supported the entire family in managing these delicate issues.

While supporting clients in a work environment, TaMara was also a member of a leadership team of a Marriage Ministry in a non-profit organization in PA. Couple workshops were offered to provide a platform for couples to share their experiences and find solutions to their personal challenges. The primary issues that were addressed were divorce, finance, communication, sex, and in-laws.

TaMara specializes in Marriage, Family, and Couple’s Therapy to create a platform of transparency and acceptance, and an environment in which concerns can be explored, understood, and resolved. TaMara works from a family systems framework with a solutions-based focus utilizing proven, evidence-based practices that help individuals and couples achieve tangible results. TaMara works with individuals, couples, and families in the areas of relationship/family dynamics, depression, anxiety, trauma, and other mental health issues. TaMara has also helped individuals with all types of challenges from death, abandonment, fairness in the household, roles and responsibilities, emotional stability and geographical relocation.
TaMara holds a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Biology from Spelman College. She continued graduate work at Harvard University studying biological sciences. She received her master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Capella University. TaMara is a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and the Pennsylvania Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. She is also a member of the Chi Upsilon Chi chapter of Chi Sigma Iota Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society. She is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and is a Certified Prepare-Enrich Facilitator for premarital and marital counseling.
