About the speaker, Dr. Tami West
Dr. Tami West cannot diagnose or treat your skin rash. She’s not that kind of doctor. She can't refill your thyroid medicine or your antidepressants. Not that kind of doctor either. Nor can she perform your colonoscopy. DEFINITELY not that kind of doctor! So what kind of doctor is she? The kind who got her PhD JUST so she could understand why we're all so stressed out! The kind who wants to help you live a happier, more fulfilled life. Tami has been helping people take their power back and live their own lives for over 15 years. Her passion stems from a lifelong battle with anxiety disorder that initiated her dedication to helping others. Her clients come from all walks of life. Danbury Federal Prison inmates (the setting of the Netflix Emmy-winning series Orange is the New Black, as well as the prison home for Martha Stewart and Real Housewife Teresa Garduci) found Tami to be genuine and real, with good practical messages and coping skills. Social Security Administration senior management called her a true professional and fantastic at what she does! She has spoken for groups in 48 states across the US, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. When she’s not speaking or writing, you might find her with her husband at the beach, reading historical fiction, at Disneyland, or watching Big Bang Theory.
