Services and Fees
My services include individual, couples, and group coaching on a wide variety of topics related to personal growth, career development (coaching for successful interviews, public speaking, etc.), building effective relationships, achieving greater balance and enjoyment in life. I serve English and Russian-speaking clients. I use Somatic Thinking Method, Co-Active Coaching, Gestalt principles, as well as my own tools developed over years of practice.
I am a profound believer that our bodies carry endless wisdom and I actively include physical movement, including Somatic Thinking exercises into my work. These physical exercises normally do not require any specific level of physical shape and can be adapted for people with limited physical abilities. Many of these exercises can be performed in-person and online.
I combine non-directive coaching approach working wholistically with my clients to reach deep-level alignment between their values, motivations, and goals with directive guidance, on as needed basis. My directive coaching expertise includes career change and development, relocation, family dynamics, communication skills, leadership-followership dynamics.
"Working with Tamara was a very positive experience. Tamara has the ability to guide her clients in a way that allows them to learn about themselves through talking about and reflecting on their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. These think-alouds helped me gain clarity in setting goals and defining practical steps to reach them. Her technique of asking well-placed questions and connecting the mind, the heart, and the body helped me gain fresh insights, identify true obstacles, and find new solutions. I highly recommend Tamara: she's intelligent, focused, engaged, sensitive, and supportive.

Working with Tamara was an amazing experience for which I am profoundly grateful. I engaged Tamara for a series of coaching sessions when I knew I was coming up on a challenging moment in my career. I truly know that my successful navigation of this time is due to her technique, talent, and generous spirit. Tamara was patient, creative, and enthusiastic. The somatic exercises always surprised me with the insights they provided: never what I expected and always enlightening. Tamara is a gifted coach who brings great wisdom to her work, and she helped me connect to my own wisdom too.

Video connection is highly desirable as it allows to bring into the session a much richer non-verbal communication. Video sessions may also include Somatic Thinking physical exercises.

This session may be booked by new (in-person only) or existing clients. It allows more time to get to know each other with new clients, but also to drill deeper into the dynamics of the relationships for the existing ones. Such extended session may solve issues that may normally require 2 1-hour sessions.
I have been using Tamara’s services for many years and I admire her ability to clearly see my most urgent needs each time we have a session. She is also able to quickly choose multiple techniques out of her wide arsenal of tools and exercises for me to effectively resolve my challenges. Tamara gives very useful homework to strengthen skills developed during a coaching session. I also value that she has been always encouraging me to develop independent self-management skills so I could solve similar problems without anyone’s help in the future.
