Tara Denneny, LCSW

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with nine years of experience working with people making changes in their life. I have worked extensively with people of various ages and socio-cultural backgrounds challenged with issues such as relationship difficulties, work performance concerns, addiction, depression, anxiety, domestic violence, and coping with life-changing situations.

I have worked with individuals, couples, and families in various outpatient and non- profit settings. In addition, I have clinical supervisory experience with direct experience in training and developing new and existing social service professionals. My approach is solution-focused, client-centered, and strengths-based drawing heavily from Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic Theory.

When working with clients I strive to make the therapy experience genuine, positive, respectful, and safe. I believe that you are the expert on your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in doing great things and overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! I am excited to meet you and to work together to identify your goals and make plans to achieve them!
