Tara offers in-person therapy sessions on Thursdays only in Ottawa. Her office is located in Ottawa, Ontario at 1956 Robertson Road, Unit #202 (Ottawa West Professional Services). Availability is limited and a waiting list is offered if there are no openings available, with virtual therapy offered in the interim.

Tara sees the majority of her clients in a virtual setting. Virtual therapy has many benefits and offers convenience and accessibility for Tara’s clients, as well as security. All sessions occur on a secure virtual platform to ensure that your privacy is maintained at all times. Tara recommends that clients locate a private and quiet area either in their home or elsewhere for sessions.

Some of Tara’s clients have preferred telephone therapy instead of virtual or in-person therapy. Tara has found that this can also be an effective way to meet clients when necessary.

If you are interested in telephone therapy, please email Tara to explore whether it is an appropriate approach for your situation.
