Tara Sharifan, PsyD
Founder, Psychologist
Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Hello, I'm Dr. Tara Sharifan. I became a pediatric psychologist because I deeply value and appreciate children and teenagers for the contributions they make to society through their creativity, intuition, and individuality. Each child has a unique personality, comprising specific strengths that can better the world we live in. I strive to help children harness those strengths and overcome barriers to becoming the best versions of themselves. Parents and families are instrumental in this goal; thus, I often include them in the overall treatment plan.
 

I have received training and experience working with gender-diverse youth and youth who have various medical conditions. I utilize therapeutic strategies consistent cognitive behavioral therapy. Within that framework, I emphasize a collaborative and scientifically supported approach with the goal of empowering individuals and families.

I received my doctorate from Pacific University and completed training at Primary Children’s Hospital, Oregon Health and Science University, and Randall Children’s Hospital. Outside of my clinical practice, I enjoy spending time with family and traveling.
