Hello! My name is Tamara and I am a therapist with Hickory Recovery in Rockville. I have a Master’s Degree in social work. I moved to Indiana from Illinois two years ago where I had my Certified Alcohol Drug Counselor credentials and am transitioning over. My career consists of 17 years’ experience in chemical dependency and mental health treatment. My career goals include gaining my LCSW and LCAC. I love working with substance abusing clients and am in recovery myself; I feel this allows me to empathize with clients struggles to becoming substance free.
