Tamara is passionate towards understanding and helping people from all ages who struggle with mental and emotional health. Her passion and curiosity developed from a young age and has propelled her to pursue a major in Psychology at National University of Singapore (NUS).
Tamara’s interest is inclined towards Clinical and Developmental Psychology, where she is devoted to helping children and adolescents who struggle with stressful life events. She believes that it is necessary to equip them with skill-sets that they can utilize to overcome such challenges individually in the future. In doing so, Tamara employs multiple psycho-therapeutic techniques such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Behavioral Therapy (BT), to help change, reinforce and guide positive behavior and thinking in all individuals.
In expanding her experience, Tamara has actively found opportunities to work with people who come from diverse backgrounds such as children with special needs, youth struggling with mental health, and marginalized prisoners. Tamara has also attended and assisted in workshops for teaching educators about mental health for youth and suicide prevention.
Tamara hopes to continue developing and nurturing her skills to assist others, while hoping to psychoeducate the public and generate greater awareness and empathy towards mental health issues through her work.
