The Team

Who We Are

Ontario Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)  MACP

Practicum Site and Supervisor: Joseph Wong

Sometimes clients feel like they ARE the problem and there is no point seeking help, because they can’t see a way to effect change.

Every client is different, but each has a set of strengths that can be used to overcome their hurdles. I use a balance of validating the client’s strengths, emotions and efforts, as well as, helping them find individualized tools to effect change.

I strive to create a safe environment where clients can feel understood and supported. I have an adaptive approach, providing clients with options and breaking down difficult obstacles into manageable steps, so that clients can begin to feel a sense of accomplishment early on in the process and start to create positive change.

Tara is currently completing her counselling degree (MACP) at Yorkville University, who is qualified to practice under the clinical supervision of an approved practicum supervisor. She also holds Bachelor degrees in Psychology (B.Sc. Honors) and Law (B.C.L, L.L.B) from McGill University. As a former human rights lawyer, Tara was always passionate about helping others, but she is excited to turn her talents towards supporting individuals in their mental health journeys.

In her work as a therapist Tara draws heavily from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), an area in which she has additional training. She also draws from a variety of evidence-based modalities, including CBT, ACT, Narrative Therapy and uses experiential and mindfulness tools in her sessions.

She has previous experience working with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, Addictions, and Intimate Partner Violence.
