Prior to becoming an ordained Minister and discovering her love for sharing love stories, Tara received her bachelors with a double major in Mass Communications and Psychology, before discovering Occupational Therapy while working with children with Autism, psychiatric disorders, and profound intellectual disabilities.
It was then that she decided to pivot her life and obtain a degree in Occupational Therapy to pursue a more soul-adjacent passion: empowering others by helping them gain functional independence while rehabilitating from physical or mental illness, injury, disability, or trauma through strengthening activities of their daily living. Tara married her boyfriend Patrick of 10 years last May.
Today, when Tara isn’t working in Pediatric Occupational Therapy or writing ceremonies/officiating, she enjoys journaling, reading, philosophy, silent retreats, practicing yoga, (as well as sharing her practice with others that are new to the practice) pilates, and her weekly dance class. She is an old soul who revels in music, theatre, and love stories of all generations. Above all else, Tara values being a mother to her son Noah the very most in this life.
All of this to say that Tara truly loves getting into “the weeds” of a person to nurture their unique story. It is her deepest passion; the overarching impetus of almost everything she pursues and hopes to accomplish. From working with children and families to transmute barriers, to curating couple’s stories and fulfilling baby blessings-Tara aims to explore the soulful ways in which love expresses itself all around us.
