My Approach

Hi, I'm Tanya.  

Let's be honest, being a teen or young adult in today's world can be really hard. The constant pressure to achieve, show up a certain way, and meet society's expectations can leave you feeling lost, fearful and overwhelmed. And when life throws painful experiences your way, it's no wonder stress levels, anxiety, and sadness can start to feel unbearably heavy for so many of us. 

You don't have to suffer alone -- it's okay to not be okay. The good news is that despite these difficulties, counselling can help turn the tide around; it offers a safe space to gain new insights, skills, and confidence to overcome challenges and start feeling better. I understand how intimidating and stressful it can be to seek support, but I'm here to make the process quick and easy because I believe mental health care should be accessible and cost-effective for all Canadians. And with affordable pricing options, you can access the assistance you need virtually without worrying about breaking the bank. Whether you're dealing with a specific issue or simply need a safe space to talk, I'm here to help.

If you're ready to take control of your mental health, reach out to me today to chat. Together, we can work towards a happier, healthier you.

Developing a relationship with a therapist who really understands you can help you find new, positive ways of seeing yourself and the world, let go of past hurts, and change the way you approach the challenges life throws your way.

As a therapist, my top priority is building a respectful, nurturing, and inclusive relationship with you, as I'm a strong believer that when you feel seen, heard, safe, and accepted, you're better equipped to create positive change in your life.

My approach to therapy is curated for you. We'll work together in a collaborative way to achieve the goals that matter most to you. I'll meet you at your pace and use a strengths-based approach to help you tap into your own unique resources and abilities.

But no worries, counselling with me is anything but uptight. I'm here to provide a relaxed and comfortable space where you can be your authentic self. You can expect me to show up authentically too, with empathy and understanding, ready to listen and support you in whatever way you need. 

Being trusted to support you on your personal transformation journey is a privilege, and I am grateful for the opportunity to join you in exploring new possibilities to help you live your best life.
