Welcome! My name is Tara and I provide individual counselling and psychotherapy in-person at my office, by telephone, or virtually using a video platform. I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Mindfulness, Emotion Focussed, Solution-Focussed and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approaches and tailor my approach to your needs. I have a special interest in using EMDR because it can reduce the number of sessions required to see positive results by resolving the impact of past traumas and allowing you to let go of painful feelings so that you can move forward with your life.  ​
I have 16 years’ experience providing counselling to people who are struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss, low self-esteem, relationship problems, difficult family dynamics, sexual violence, life transitions, racism/discrimination, and trauma/PTSD related to childhood or adulthood.
My approach is client centred and is based on anti-oppressive and trauma informed principles. I am dedicated to providing a safe space for my clients to explore and process their feelings so that they work towards greater self-awareness, self-compassion, and self-acceptance, which I believe are all key to emotional healing.
