I'm Tamara, Founder of Ince Counseling and Consulting (ICC), also known as Ince Counseling. I've spent the last 15+ years of my life working with clients towards achieving the mental wellness goals that have been holding them back from truly transforming their lives. My open communication style and focused questioning guides my clients towards understanding their own unique emotional development and how their experiences and emotional history shades the way they see their lives. My goal is to empower clients so they can take the “shades” off and look at their lives from a different perspective, enabling them to take charge of whatever situation they are currently facing, knowing they have the support of a professional to guide them through the process.
Through both strategic employment pursuits and through continued pursuit of knowledge, along with an extensive real-world and first-hand experiences with trauma, grief, and post traumatic stress disorder, I have gained an appreciation for how what happens within our external environment over our life span impacts how we feel, hear, respond and react, and in most cases, influence who we become. This experience was especially valuable in my service to the US Attorney’s Office DC- Homicide Division as a consultant in the areas of trauma and grief, where I worked with prosecutors on behalf of the residents of DC. Among other roles I've occupied, I'm proud of my status as a Gulf War Era Army Veteran. However, most importantly, I too, am a work in progress.
I founded Ince Counseling to provide a milieu in which strong people can partner with a clinician during some of their most challenging moments. We provide an ear, education, and tools to enhance the strength you already posses.
