Tatum Brookes, B.A.
Client Care Coordinator
she / her
Welcome! My name is Tatum Brookes and I am the Client Care Coordinator. I will be your first hello and last goodbye at the office! To be more specific, as the Client Care Coordinator and messenger, I will do my best to make sure you feel supported, connected, and heard here at Freedom Within. In simpler terms, I am the middleman between you and your therapist.
While I have just begun my role in the realm of mental health, I am greatly thankful to join Freedom Within Therapy and Wellness Center. To elaborate, I am deeply passionate about mental health, our service members, and interpersonal communication. As someone raised in a military family, and who has dealt with personal bouts of mental health hurdles, I feel I can be a calming asset, friendly face, and ally of relatability for our clients.
More About Me…
I am a Navy military brat originally from Chula Vista. Graduating during the beginning of the pandemic, I have worked an abundance of unique stepping stone positions to prepare me for this role! As I have just recently moved from Morro Bay back to my hometown, I am thrilled at the renewed access I have to top notch ethnic foods, culture, vintage goods, and the specific SD watercolor sunsets. To continue about me, I am in awe with all things right brain; creation, moving my body, reading fiction, and astrology!
Fun Fact: Just like Kendra Penski our Clinical Director, I too have a twin sister! No, I cannot read her mind, but yes, we are incredibly identical and close. Oddly, we both have celiacs disease (gluten allergy). The strange thing is, she is symptomatic and I am not!
