Thanks for taking the time to stop by and get to know me. Mental Health is very important to me. Being a therapist and providing counseling to those that need it is my passion.
I am a Registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #131042 under the supervision of Dr. Melissa Springstead, LMFT #47113 at Anchor Children & Family Counseling, Inc in Pasadena, CA. I have my Master's Degree in Couples and Family Therapy from Alliant University, California School of Professional Psychology.
My speciality is helping women, children and families. I utilize Narrative Therapy, Art Therapy and EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing with my adult clients. EMDR therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
With children I use play therapy and art therapy as children tend to express themselves through play and art rather than words. Play and art help them manage their anxiety, depression and neurodivergence.
I am trained in Young & Healthy's art based mindfulness program for school aged children and utilize meditation and art therapy in sessions with adults and children. I am also a Certified Yoga and Meditation Teacher.
I am LGBTQIA+ and Social Justice allied. I am a culturally competent therapist. I am always open to learning to best serve and align with all communities.
One of my favorite things to do is find shells on the beach. To find out more about Tara LaDue, therapist from Pasadena, CA, click on image.
