My name is Tamara Blackledge Burr and I have worked as a psychotherapist in the mental health field for over ten years. I have had the opportunity to work with children and families involved with the foster care system as well as incarcerated adults. I promise to be there for you every step of your journey to becoming the best version of yourself. 

     My goal is to provide a therapeutic environment where you are free to be your authentic self without fear of judgment. I will help you grow through your struggles, heal from your pain, and push forward to where you want to be in life.

growth . change . Transformation

The Butterfly Effect Therapy & Wellness understands that wellness begins with a healthy mindset. Psychotherapy has gotten a bad rap over the years but we are in the midst of an altering era for mental health. Making the decision to seek therapy is incredibly humbling and takes immense courage. Therapy can support you in learning how your feelings affect everything you do and is key to unlocking all of the parts of ourselves that end up buried by everyday stress, trauma, pressure and sorrow. Psychotherapy allows one to move past just surviving and encourages thriving.

Not all transformations are visible.
