Tamrah Biernat received her master’s degree in Social Work from Fordham University in 2014 and is credentialed in alcoholism and substance abuse. She has worked with clients suffering from trauma, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, life transitions, co-occurring disorders, grief and loss, and compassion fatigue.
Her treatment approach integrates psychodynamic, psychoeducation, strength-based, and behavioral methods, along with other various modalities. She utilizes a client-centered approach by meeting her clients where they are, and by creating a safe, empathic, and non-judgmental space that allows her clients to open up and share their stories. She is a firm believer that therapy should be tailored to the individual’s unique needs and will work together with her client to choose a modality that best suits them personally.
She helps her clients to identify life stresses and struggles, increase self-awareness, and enhance coping skills. Tamrah believes therapy is the biggest gift a person can give to themselves and is committed to working together as a team with her clients to help them with their overall quality of life.
Tamrah resides in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband, their son, and her fur babies. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, traveling, exploring new foods, and reading thrillers.
Tamrah finds happiness in helping others and creating new adventures with her loved ones. As Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter stated, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
