Professional statement

Tara Moyle, at The Virtual Counselors, has worked primarily with teenagers and young adults for the last 15+ years. She holds a Master’s of Professional Mental Health Counseling and is a Licensed Associate Counselor. She assisted a wide range of students from diverse backgrounds in the Chicago area, greater New York, and central Virginia as a professor of writing and teacher in Language and Literary Arts.

Further experience includes aiding high-performing yet perfectionist students, those on the autism spectrum, or students struggling to find motivation, especially during this time of chaos and change. Teen and young adult issues, PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, cognitive distortions, relationships and vocation are her specialty areas.

Using an empowerment model, she also works with life transitions and development, climate change anxiety, social justice concerns, and holistic approaches to healing. Theoretically, she remains rooted in both Narrative and Existential frameworks, as well as a Feminist, social justice orientation.


Message to clients

We all need to be seen, and heard, at any age. Being scared, anxious, or even depressed are sometimes part of being a person. Our fast-paced digital world can present unique challenges for our bodies and minds. I am happy to meet you wherever you are, and will approach each visit with a sense of compassionate curiosity. Just as we hunger for stories of other people to help guide us, you may wonder about your own story. Why are you here? What must you do with your life?

I work with adolescents (12+) through older, retired adults and specialize in issues of transition, anxiety, adjustment, depression, and vocation. I am not the expert in your life; you are. But sometimes we need help with perspective. Together, we will create a plan that will help you reduce the most difficult aspects of your life and help you determine how to move through them. What cannot be changed can be reviewed, understood, and ultimately, accepted.
