I offer my deep presence, empathy, and guidance to your therapeutic process.

Hi, I'm Tamar

Registered Professional Counsellor & Somatic Therapy Educator, RPC

My approach uses a body-mind connection. I respect your wholeness and all parts of you are welcomed and listened to. I help my clients attune to their bodies and clarify their thoughts. Together we will educate the chaos inside. Within my integrated wellness approach, I provide effective tools and practices for your daily life.

I primarily focus on Somatic Therapy, trauma education, and nervous system regulation. Somatic work is very close to my heart. My own life transformed as I delved into it, and continues to do so.

I also blend a variety of other therapeutic models including elements of: self-expressive Talk Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Parts Work, and Life Skills Coaching.

My intention is to help create a very safe space for my clients to explore their authentic selves and allow for genuine discovery and growth.

It is important to me to build trust and rapport with my clients, and connect with them using my intuition, skill, and wisdom.

I believe in using a titrated process of therapy with the understanding that trauma healing needs to be paced and grounded. Each session is unique and customized according to the client’s needs and current state.

I have witnessed the growth capacity and resilience that people possess to resolve their issues.
My role is to help support and provide guidance as you discover your purpose, liberation, and empowerment.

Some Fun Facts about me

I enjoy a healthy lifestyle. I love music, art, walking, dancing, connecting with friends and family, reading, learning, watching a great show or movie, skin care, and being in nature.

For 7 years I sang beautiful 3-part harmonies with Samantha Keller and Heather Houston. We sang songs and chants from all over the world, as well as original music. The exquisite layers of harmonies we wove together was known to give people the shivers and melt hearts. It remains one of the greatest joys of my life!

Here’s a taste of the music we created together:
