Tamara Driskell

Licensed Therapist and Reiki Master Teacher

What Tamara Driskell brings to Empathic Practice

Who Succeeds with Tamara

My favorite clients are those with a low threshold for small talk and anything that feels like bullshit. Those who like to go deep and can’t stand settling for the mundane. I have a sweet spot for anxious and perfectionistic misfits and mystics who can sometimes trip themselves up striving to live authentically while connecting with others.”

Her specialties include: 

  • Quelling existential anxiety & angst
  • Identity exploration and personal empowerment
  • Guiding individuals on rebuilding relationships, intimacy, and sexual connection
  • Non-traditional issues: LGBTQ+, non-monogamy / polyamory, and kink
  • Spiritual abuse and religious trauma syndrome

Empowering You

Tamara is a natural rebel and visionary. So are her clients and patients. She empowers people to step into their own power and learn how to hold themselves there. 

“Not surprisingly then, even as a natural nurturer, I have come to be known for my “out-of-the-box” and “tell it like it is” approach at times.  This means I’ll go where you want to and I won’t ever placate you.”

Healthy & Holistic Healing

“I hold a master’s degree in psychology and have extensive training in matters pertaining to gender, sexual, erotic and relational diversity. I’m also a certified Reiki Master Teacher for those of you who enjoy energy healing and the metaphysical as part of your holistic health regimen.”
