Hello, I’m Tomauro.
I hope to be a source of strength, hope, and empowerment for you, your relationship, and your family as you work to uncover your maximum potential. Our work together is intended to provide purpose and help you strengthen yourself and your relationships to promote healing and growth.
How I Can Help You…
Past clients have described me as genuine, compassionate, and an active listener who is kind and honest. One of my key strengths is the ability to help people feel safe, comfortable, and understood. This is especially helpful in couples counseling with one partner who may be on the fence about getting help!
Whether we’re working together to improve your relationship, create a more positive family life, or strengthen and empower YOU, I hope to help you achieve your goals, strengthen your connections, and grow as a person.
Positive, Effective Marriage Counseling, Couples Therapy, and Relationship Coaching
I provide couples therapy and marriage counseling and have years of specialized education, training, and experience in this area. I primarily use an evidence-based approach to couples counseling called Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT). In my coaching work, I draw up on the principles of this approach.
EFCT is so effective in helping you create real and lasting change in your relationship because it takes a certain level of vulnerability to maintain a healthy relationship. That vulnerability allows you to trust and communicate more effectively with your partner or spouse. I aim to increase positive communication, help establish healthy boundaries, and improve daily interactions and conflict resolution skills.

I believe the greatest gift you can give your new marriage is the opportunity to learn how to be amazing, supportive partners for each other. Premarital Counseling allows you to have essential conversations and create a strong foundation to manage conflicts.
I am a certified Prepare-Enrich premarital counselor. If we work together, we’ll start with an assessment, and then we will discuss the results as a team. The assessment will cover 9-10 core topics and be divided by “strength area” and “growth area.” These results will help prioritize our time together, along with your personal goals.
Once you finish premarital counseling, I hope you have a clear sense of what to expect from your marriage, plus a comprehensive toolbox of skills and strategies to help you maintain a strong foundation with your partner.
Many couples struggle with issues related to their family life. How you parent together, the way you work as a team, your family values, and the types of relationships you want to cultivate with your children and extended family may all be an important part of our work together.
My approach to family therapy is an Intergenerational Theory. I believe that change happens when the current family system understands how multigenerational and past family dynamics affect the current functioning of the system or family.
I can help you by exploring generational patterns and helping each member be heard and understood. I believe that if you can heal the system, each individual part will excel on its own.
While I have a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy and do offer more traditional therapy, I am also a certified life coach. My approach to life coaching is solution-focused and goal-oriented.
I know life transitions of any magnitude can cause friction and chaos in our daily functioning. I can help you navigate those difficult times by helping you set boundaries, and improving your problem-solving skills. Breakups, divorce, and/or the loss of a job can feel like the end of the world. But no fear! I am here to guide and support you through your time of loss and recovery. It is time to create positive goals for your future. I aim to increase personal growth through our work together and set you up for success in the next chapter of your life.
If you’re seeking a therapist for a more serious situation (and live in my state of licensure, Tennessee), I can help you. I have a person-centered, non-directive approach to therapy that uses a blend of empowering solution-focused techniques and evidence-based cognitive-behavioral therapeutic interventions.
However, I know that you, like everyone, are a unique individual, so our work together will always be tailored to meet your specific needs and circumstances.
If we work together in therapy, I can help you with mindfulness exercises, psycho-education, coping skills, identifying triggers, and your support team.
I earned a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Lipscomb University. I am a certified life coach, a certified PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator, and I have received training in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
Outside of being an awesome therapist and coach based in Nashville, Tennessee, I am a wife and mother of 3 handsome young men. In our free time, we enjoy board games and traveling. My favorite color is purple, and I could eat Tacos 7 days a week if allowed. My favorite quote and mantra is by Jack Canfield,
“If we are not a little bit uncomfortable every day, we’re not growing. All the good stuff is outside our comfort zone.”
If you’re ready to get out of your comfort zone and start growing, I’m here to help. Get started by scheduling a free consultation with me.
