What can you expect in a therapy session with me?
In an individual session, we spend approximately 60 minutes talking about different emotions and how they can get tangled in a confusing web mixed with truth and lies about yourself and others.
In a couple/family session, we spend approximately 75 minutes talking about each family member's experience and how they play into the relationship patterns we all have in place with those who mean a great deal to us.

Melissa Cameron, LMFT Associate
Carl Jung once stated, "The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no one recipe for living that suits all cases". Therapy is not a "one fits all" experience, however, it is to be tailored to one's unique situation. Chamara Thomas is a Marriage and Family Student Therapist at Capella University, looking to specialize in blended families. Raised as a stepchild herself, and now the proud bonus mother of two children, she understands the challenges that can arise when blending two families. While blended families are her niche, they are not her encompassing focus. Chamara is currently working with men and women who are survivors of domestic violence. Chamara is knowledgeable in a multitude of therapeutic interventions used to create change and growth in adolescence and adults.
