Tara received her Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Toronto. She has worked in both educational settings and in private practice. Tara provides psychological services to adolescents and adults who are struggling with a variety of mental health concerns. She has a passion for inspiring people to live their best lives, and loves working with individuals who are motivated to take positive and healthy action to achieve their wellness goals. She draws primarily from Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy approaches.
Tara addresses the importance of self-responsibility, accountability, and empowerment within the therapeutic process, wherein the client is responsible for actively engaging and applying techniques from therapy into his/her life. Through the use of therapeutic tools, Tara works with her clients to identify blocks and difficulties, ultimately allowing for personal growth and well-being. Therapeutic tools that Tara often draws upon include mindfulness training, guided imagery, relaxation, goal setting and positive challenges, lifestyle recommendations, and awareness of the mind-body connection.
Outside of her private practice work, Tara loves spending time with her husband and their son, reading, practicing yoga, traveling, running, and spending time in the kitchen. Tara has a passion in investing in her own personal growth in an effort to live her best life, and therefore attends different mindfulness trainings and yoga retreats around the world.
