Tara Hill, MMFT
Tara Hill is a Marriage and Family therapist who has spent half of her life using her personal and career experiences advocating and supporting individuals and families in mental and behavioral health. Tara is a highly motivated Mental Health Professional with over 20 years of experience in caretaking, social work, coaching, and customer service. Tara grew up in a toxic stress environment and wanted to make a change in her family dynamics. After becoming a single mother at 19, she decided to attend college where she took up Psychology to address the dysfunctional norms and break the generational cycles within her own family. While her focus is on advocating for mental and behavioral health care, she also provides Trauma Informed Care services for children, adults and families in the community.
She believes that her experience, expertise, and ability in the area of Mental/Behavioral health, childcare development, as well as family services will help her clients overcome barriers and challenges in toxic stress environments and learn to thrive by giving them the support needed. She knows there is no single approach that works for everyone, so she continues to educate herself on emerging advocacy and counseling trends to provide the most therapeutic treatments that works for her client’s individual needs.
She received her education at Liberty University with a Master’s in Human Services Counseling with a concentration on Marriage and Family Therapy. She also holds a Bachelor’s in Psychology from Cleveland State University. She is an avid researcher and is known for bettering herself to help better understand, and care for others around her. She is the creator of To Attain Healing LLC. (Promoting more healthier individuals and families through healing), her long-term goal is to create resources to help others acknowledge trauma and heal thyself, while defining purpose. The goal is to truly heal and not mask, to identify, describe, explain, and control the behavior and mental processes of oneself.
Tara is a mother of two sons, she practices Philanthropy, is a leader for Trauma Informed Care (Sanctuary Model), and is a member of the National Congress of Black Woman Greater Cleveland Chapter (NCBW-GCC), Delta Kappa MFT, and AAMFT
