We aren't supposed to hate life!
Dr. Tami West cannot diagnose or treat your skin rash.
She’s not that kind of doctor.
Nor can she perform your colonoscopy.
DEFINITELY not that kind of doctor!
So what kind of doctor is she? The kind who got her PhD JUST so she could understand why we're all so stressed out! The kind who wants to help you live a happier, more fulfilled life.
Tami has been helping people take their power back and live their own lives for over 15 years. Her passion stems from a lifelong battle with anxiety disorder that initiated her dedication to helping others. Her clients come from all walks of life. Danbury Federal Prison inmates (the setting of the Netflix Emmy-winning series Orange is the New Black, as well as the prison home for Martha Stewart and Real Housewife Teresa Garduci) found Tami to be genuine and real, with good practical messages and coping skills. Social Security Administration senior management called her a true professional and fantastic at what she does!
Tami began her career with a Bachelor’s degree in biology and spent the next ten years working in hospitals, physician’s offices, and research labs. She changed careers in 1995, becoming a public school teacher, and in 2005 decided to pursue a career that would allow her to use personal experiences to help women find solutions to their challenges.
Her undergraduate degrees in science and education, as well as her doctoral research in human development, uniquely equip her to address the human factor that underlies the success of women, both personally and professionally. Her publications include The Stress Club: Stop participating, take your power back, and start living your own life, A Woman’s Guide to Personal Achievement and Professional Success, and Life Without the Monsters.
She has spoken for groups in 48 states across the US, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. When she’s not speaking or writing, you might find her traveling with her husband or kids, reading historical fiction, on a west coach beach somewhere, or watching Big Bang Theory.
