Charlotte Parent Coaching Dr. Tara Egan websites are now consolidated into Egan Counseling & Consulting.

Welcome to
Egan Counseling & Consulting

Proudly providing child therapy,
co-parent coaching, and family therapy

Parenting isn't what you thought it would be.

It feels like everyone in your house is always arguing.

Temper outbursts. Power struggles. Disrespect. Sadness.

Maybe you're fighting with your co-parent about how to discipline.

Your child may be struggling at home, school, or both. 


Your family is having a hard time; you need help.

Your relationship with your child is strained at best; high-conflict at worst.

Maybe you're wondering if your little one is typically developing, or if they need more help. Maybe your worried that your older child needs to go to boarding school or wilderness camp. 

It’s affecting everything.


Your ability to care for your other children.

Your ability to concentrate at work.

Your marriage.

Your self-esteem.

Your home life might be really tough right now, and you’re feeling pretty hopeless.

How Can We Help?


Our goal at Egan Counseling & Consulting is to make your job easier. To feel less alone in this. 


Our therapists have extensive experience working with parents and kids with challenging behaviors. We work with all sorts of families, with children of all ages.


Our job is to help, not judge.

We have a lovely office in the Carmel area of Charlotte, and we would love to welcome you there.


However, sometimes it's better for us to connect via telehealth, OR to come to you in your home, on your schedule. No traffic or waiting rooms. We'll decide on the best location together.


When you schedule your session, you can individualize the length based on what you need---60 minutes? 75 minutes? 90 minutes? Our goal is to maximize the benefit of our work together each time we meet.

We’re all working together, so if one of your other children is struggling with something, we can support them, too. We collaborate with teachers, physicians, psychiatrists, attorneys, and other professionals to coordinate the best treatment possible.


The support we offer is meant to be problem-focused, practical, and individualized. We don't want to just talk theoretically about parenting issues. We want you to get relief; to see real change in your home. We want you to get through this rough time and get back to your life with newfound knowledge to stay happy and healthy.


This is an investment in your family. You’ll find our therapists to be good communicators, caring, accessible, and focused.

Get started with child and family therapy. 


Schedule a 30-minute or 60-minute New Client Intake Session with one of our therapists so we can learn more about your concerns, answer all your questions, and determine the next

steps. No obligation or pressure, just some information gathering so we can find out

if we're the best fit for your family.


"Dr. Egan...I'm struggling to find words to articulate how much I appreciate all that you've done for my son. As his parent, it warms my heart to see others stand up for him. Your compassion is unparalleled."
