Tania practices from a holistic perspective, which includes a feminist and creative approach, and is client focused. She listens with an anti-oppressive ear by paying attention to social and environmental impacts on individual struggles. She is trained in advanced EMDR, and is a Certified Trauma Treatment Specialist (CTTS).
You can expect confidential, professional and ethical services that puts you first and empowers you to make your own decisions based on your own values.
When working on relationship issues with Tania you may feel validated, understood and empowered to make the changes you have always wanted. With special attention to communication issues Tania helps individuals and couples unpack old wounds and work together to build new bridges. Creating and maintaining healthy relationships is work and sometimes after unpacking old stories you need new tools to help communication. This is possible.
Dynamics in same-sex and Queer relationships are explored with a unique lens with privilege and power being attended to. Counselling with Tania can help you learn how to respectfully navigate conflict and share your beliefs, values and dreams.
Open, non-monogamous and poly relationships will be met with understanding and an appreciation of alternative relationships. Using strong communication skills we can explore frameworks, trust and boundaries to create satisfying relationships.
Fertility and pregnancy issues require an understanding that doesn't lose focus of who you are as an individual and in relationship to your self and/or partner(s). Processing events or planning ahead can help ground yourself. 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals encounter unique challenges and joys with fertility and pre/post pregnancy issues.
Tania works with children and families closely to enhance their family connections, to increase communication and to process difficult events and parenting experiences. Parenting concerns are explored with respect and with a non-judgmental approach. Sometimes both kids and parents just need a little extra support to get through the bumps. Attachment and communication styles may be explored.
Transgender, gender diverse and all the folks in between are welcome to explore relationships, dysphoria, self-development, family of origin issues, parenting concerns and stress / anxiety. Parents of trans* children are supported in understanding their own process while also empowering their children.
Hormone Readiness Assessments Assessment follows WPATH guidelines. Questions about your gender identity, feelings about your body, your goals, health history, your understanding of hormone therapy and your support network will be asked. Hormone Readiness Assessments is a stand-alone assessment and is not about on-going individual therapy with Tania.
Diverse family structures are welcome.
Counselling with Tania can help sort out mixed feelings, name the crazy making stuff, build healthy relationships, grow professionally and reduce anxiety and the effects of trauma. Strengthening communication is possible.
