About Andrea Tackore
I worked in the corporate worlds of retail, banking, radio, and accounting before entering the counseling field. I started in private practice counseling in 2003, working with individuals, couples, adolescents, and children. I’ve worked with early-intervention programs in elementary schools and as a counselor in the university setting.
I work with clients from a relational theory perspective. This means I believe the difficulties we experience are rooted in the challenges of developing satisfying, deeply connected relationships with others and with ourselves. I draw out your story with empathy and presence, working with you to build a healthy relationship that will serve as the support and strength to grow.
I am originally from Jamaica and have enjoyed working internationally with those in the Caribbean culture. I have lived in the US since adolescence and maintain an in-person practice with a variety of clients. While I personally embrace the Christian faith, I welcome clients from all backgrounds as each client retains full control of spirituality in our sessions. One significant part of my story is that I mothered for 22 years before my daughter passed away from complications of Cystic Fibrosis. My personal story flows from being an adopted child to the deep losses of loved ones with God’s grace and blessings throughout
