Deborah Bloom (formerly Sweet) has worked in private practice since 2002. Deborah originally began her career as a holistic nutritionist and clinical herbalist. However, her own healing journey and her introduction to the TARA Approach in 2002 ignited a fire of passion for understanding how to integrate complimentary and alternative approaches to heal illness and disease at their roots, within the nervous system. At the heart of Deborah's practice is the understanding that healing within the emotional, psychological, and spiritual systems are the foundation for true sustainable healing within the mind, body, and spirit.
Deborah currently uses evidence-based comprehensive mind-body approaches to address root causes of physical, psychological, and emotional pain and suffering. In addition to the TARA philosophy and treatment approach, Deborah incorporates psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, attachment theory, and creative arts approaches in her practice. Deborah is also able to provide comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological testing and evaluation with the support of a Licenced Clinical Psychologist. Deborah blends these approaches to meet the specific needs, interests, and goals of her clients.
Deborah has received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Master's Degree in Couple, Child, and Family Therapy from Antioch University. Her concentrations and clinical work within her Doctoral Program included: Child and Family Systems, Health Psychology, and Autism Spectrum Disorders and Neurodevelopmental Disorders in Children and Adults. Her research focused on attachment and how early life experiences and self-care practices impact the experience of transitioning to motherhood.
In addition to her private practice Deborah has worked for Youth and Family Service Agencies, ASTAR Center (Autism Spectrum Treatment and Research Center), University of Washington CARE Clinic for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Antioch Psychology Clinic, Department of Health and Social Services, and was a co-founder of The Center for Family and Lifespan Development.
Deborah has taught and lectured on the TARA Approach nationally since 2003. She has also supported the integration of the TARA Approach into the practices of physicians, nurses, physical therapists, massage therapists, pain management specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, midwives, and doulas around the country.
