Tamara Dill Sautter


Tamara Sautter is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She grew up in Cary, where her family still resides. She graduated with honors from North Carolina State University with both a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology and Master of Social Work. In graduate school, Tamara worked as a social work intern in various settings such as crisis centers, an in-patient psychiatric hospital, and a residential treatment facility. Upon receiving her therapeutic license, she worked as an outpatient therapist, school-based therapist, and behavioral interventionist. She has been conducting therapy with adolescents, families, and adults since 2012.

Tamara takes time to build strong relationships with each client to understand their backgrounds, needs, and goals. In sessions, she incorporates a variety of evidence-based theoretical models through an eclectic approach including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), solution-focused therapy, and a strength-based approach to provide a collaborative experience in finding balance, health, and peace. Although she has experience working with diverse populations of various socioeconomic backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs, Tamara has a passion for working with young adult women struggling with self-esteem; anxiety; depression; spiritual deconstruction; LGBTQIA+ identities; chronic illness; stress; infertility, pregnancy, and parenting; emotion regulation; life transitions; and other mental health experiences.

She believes that everyone can find a therapist who fits their needs, no matter the circumstances of life, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion, etc. In forming a strong therapeutic rapport, she focuses on creating a safe environment to effectively process emotions and thoughts and developing healthier thought processes and coping skills. She acknowledges that therapy looks different for everyone and looks forward to collaborating with you to meet your personal counseling needs and goals.
