She/Her/HersLicensed Professional Counselor, LPC
Tara Laxson is Licensed Professional Counselor located in Dallas, TX. Tara is passionate about working with women who put their all into careers, relationships, and hobbies - but feel like their energy is not reciprocated by those around them. Tara’s clients often feel like their behaviors or thoughts have a mind of their own and go against their internal wishes or desires, which leads to a lack of fulfillment despite a busy, robust lifestyle.
Tara works with these clients to develop ways to listen to this inner voice and give it value. She encourages clients to learn about themselves and trust their intuition. She also provides strategies for empathizing with others and feeling confident in relationships. Tara’s greatest mission is to help her clients feel loved, valued, and respected - and that starts with the self! Tara promotes self love and offers support as clients grow their self worth.
Tara earned her Masters degree in Counseling from University of North Texas. She brings warmth and relatability into each one of her sessions and is a great cheerleader for her clients as they reach their mental health goals.
