Tara Lunde, MSW, LGSW

You are the pilot in the journey we call life and deserve to feel respected and supported on that journey. You are unique in your needs as an individual; or family. My approach to therapy is to build a positive therapeutic relationship at your pace and work toward the goals you would like to accomplish. Think of me as your “co-pilot” during this process. I want to be a support to you and offer a safe place for you to communicate your worries and explore solutions together as a team.
A bit about me: I am very down-to-earth and spend most of my time outside therapy with my family, friends, and boxer dog.
