Meet Tara Saya, MA, LPCC, NCC

After spending twenty years working and managing within the Colorado child welfare system, I returned to school to obtain my Master of Arts in Counseling. It was apparent small communities lack resources and I wanted to make more of a direct impact on families by providing effective services in our mountain communities. I am a Colorado native and have lived the majority of my life in small Colorado communities and know that life here is different from the “big city”. While exploring the most recent and effective interventions, I learned about Neurofeedback, Brainspotting, and the Gottman Method Couples Therapy, which I further pursued and enjoy utilizing with my clients. I am also passionate about keeping families safe and together. In this vein, I manage Conifer Counselings parenting and family programs, specifically our community based Love and Logic program (in collaboration with the Boys and Girls Clubs of the High Rockies since 2017). I am a mother and step-mother to four children between the ages of 6-22! This, in addition to my experience in the child welfare system, makes me an expert and ally in the field of parenting.
