Tamar is the therapist every child deserves.  She is wholly attuned  with each child’s needs and offers the gentle and compassionate suggestions for parents.  My kiddos love her and we do too.  DIR/Floortime changed everything for us.

Tamar is phenomenal, I am so glad we connected with her - she has done wonders with my son, and has allowed him to reconnect with himself, with others and with his family. I don't really know how to express this in another way that "she gets it, she gets him and it works". She brought happiness back to him and to us and for that I am really grateful to her.

Tamar is professional, experienced, and will go above and beyond for the children and families she works with! We have referred several families to Tamar for play therapy in a one-on-one setting, as well as social skills groups. Tamar creates customized therapy plans in collaboration with parents, teachers, and other professionals for each child. It is a pleasure to work with a professional like Tamar!

Tamar is an amazing Neurodevelopmental Specialist with so much insight, experience, and care to offer. Tamar has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field. After receiving my Bachelors degree in Psychology, Tamar has been an amazing mentor. She as helped guide me in my understanding of children's behaviors and what can be done to aid a child's success in different environments. Her unique approach to each child's specific situation includes ensuring that each session is fine tuned to the child's progress and the families are actively receiving tools to take home to aid the child beyond the sessions.
