My Story

Tara J. Brim, Ph.D.

I am a Licensed Psychologist in the state of Kansas. I earned my Master’s and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at Oklahoma State University. I completed my doctoral internship with a clinical specialty focus area working with clients who deal with eating disorders and body image issues at the University of Missouri. Followed by a Post-Doctoral Psychology Fellowship with Counseling and Educational Support Services at The University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC).

I offer evening and weekend availability through telehealth. I provide evidence-based psychotherapy for adults by integrating cognitive-behavioral and relational cultural theory models of treatment in my practice. My primary clinical interests include perfectionism, self-esteem, interpersonal concerns, anxiety, depression, couples counseling, and LGBTQ+ issues.

My aim is to collaborate with clients to aid in their development of healthy coping mechanisms and cultivating a sense of balance in their lives while working towards their goals.

I like to spend my free time laughing and exploring new adventures with my loved ones. One of my favorite quotes is from Brene Brown, “You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness.”
