About

Hello, and thank you for visiting my page. I feel honoured to have worked in the field for over a decade, providing counselling and psychotherapy services to many incredible people. I am extremely passionate about mental health, and have a keen interest in serving the population of children, teens, families, and adults who have experienced trauma in their childhood. I have the deepest respect for those who have survived hardships, painful and difficult life experiences, and are on a path of wanting to heal and move forward in their lives.
I am committed to offering best practice treatments to the clients that I serve. I have obtained Certification in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Certification in Play Therapy through the Canadian Association of Play Therapy. I also offer Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and other effective modalities.
My lifelong pursuit of learning and exploring new treatment modalities will allow me to cater treatment goals to the client's individual needs. My goal will always be to develop a safe, connected, and attuned relationship with my client, which will provide the therapeutic space for the client to work through what they are focused on improving.

Taryn Barnes's Groups

Southwest Counselling Services

Southwest Counselling Services is a group of clinical social workers that offer professional and accessible counselling and therapeutic services to adults, youth, and children residing in the city of Sarnia and surrounding area.
