We had the good fortune of connecting with Tamara Angela and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tamara, how does your business help the community or world?
It took me a moment to understand that I am a psychic medium who chose to go into a career as a clinical therapist and not the other way around. I no longer practice as a clinical therapist and instead practice in my spiritual gifts. But I do seek to normalize mental health, especially for people of color. My practice is a fusion of spirituality and therapeutic principles which helps to guide people in their divine purpose.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
People are really more open now to understanding their gifts and purpose. I feel blessed that I can assist on a small part of that journey. The lessons I teach others are things that I have learned myself. It wasn’t easy in the beginning to accept my calling, but there came a point where I knew that it was the only path for me. I love assisting others while they are on that same journey.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m totally an Eastside kind of girl. My friends and I typically hang in East Atlanta if we do the city, going to art shows, eating at rooftop restaurants. I’m also often hanging in L5P and my fave, Ponce City Market. Especially on Sundays.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would totally say women and the power, love, and support of women is the huge reason I am who I am. Tribe is so very important. It’s a concept I grew up with and it’s a central theme that drives what I do. Helping women discover who they are and how that helps you find your tribe is pivotol. When you have support of other phenomenal women, you feel empowered to do amazing things.
