Tammy H. Scheidegger, Ph.D., NCC
I am a National Certified Counselor with over 20 years of experience in the mental health field. Before moving to Wisconsin in 2005, I was engaged in a group counseling practice that was affiliated with Fairfield Medical Center in Lancaster, Ohio. I have worked with a variety of clients in several modalities (i.e. individual, couples, and families), and have specialized in Family Therapy with children and adolescents.
My work has also included seeing clients with eating disorders and working in the area of trauma and disaster response. I conduct professional presentations on topics related to child and adolescent development in the context of family functioning, trauma counseling and intervention, and supervision with practicum and internship students. I also consult with under-served rural schools on mental health and counseling needs and serve as the Chairperson for the Educational Advisory Board of the S.O.A.R (Scholarships, Opportunities, and Accessing in Racine) Program.
