Out of all my years of therapy, she has been the best by far. I pray anyone who starts the journey of healing and therapy can get someone else open, understanding, and compassionate as her

Written on May 15, 2022 after therapy with Tanya for 11 months on issues concerning family conflicts, grief, parenting issues, and adhd

As of next week, I will have spent an entire year of weekly appointments with Tanya. The depth and breath of her ability to listen well and to gently bring forward things to think about, reflect on and act upon is a gift to me, which leads me to believe is the same with everyone she works with. It has been a wonderful year within a very tough year because of God‘s great grace and Tanya Edwards.

Tanya is wonderful. I appreciated our time together, her warmth, thoughtfulness and guidance in reflecting on the past issues and opportunities ahead. I came into therapy feeling a little lost and, through our sessions, writing prompts, and personal actions, have gained a sense of clarity and momentum. Thank you!

I’ve only been with Tanya for two weeks, and I’ve been to many therapists before, but this is the first time I feel seen, understood, and not judged in about 4 years. I’m excited to go through this journey of healing with Tanya.

Amazing lady

From my first session, I knew Tanya was a great match for me. She's so empathetic, but still challenges and pushes you if you need it. I already feel like I'm working on things I haven't worked on in therapy in a long time. I'm so thankful for her!

Tanya is lovely to work with. She’s joyful, personable and is great at guiding the conversation to go where you need it to, to express what you need to express and heal what you need to heal. If you are in crisis often, however, I would suggest another counsellor, as Tanya is only able to respond every so often.

Tanya speaks to me with compassion in validating my feelings, the process, the hard days and driving me in engaging myself in the healing. I went back to Tanya with life goal aspects and each conversation helped me picture where and who I want to be today and for the future. She's great.

Tanya has been an increible sounding board throughout my divorce. I have loved my sessions with her and she holds a safe space for me to be seen, heard, and to be witnessed as I process through some heavy emotions, grief, and change.

Tanya,

Is a great counselor! She is attentive, encouraging, and accommodating!

I highly recommend her!

Written on Apr 10, 2021 after therapy with Tanya for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

Tanya has been so instrumental in my healing process. She gave practical suggestions on how to manage my anxieties, how to build up my confidence, and how to deal with issues on my career.

It's so easy to speak with Tanya as she made me feel comfortable from the onset. On my bad days, I always try to recall her words of wisdom. It helps me focus and calm down. I appreciate her checking in on me from time to time.

Thank you Tanya for being so reliable, encouraging and accommodating. You never made me feel that my thoughts and feelings were invalid or that they didn't matter. You made me believe in myself again when I thought I was so inadequate in my current role. Grateful for your core message that my job shouldn't define me. I will always remember that "I am more than my job!"

Tanya has a great personality and friendly attitude . She keeps me in the reality of situations while still being supportive and understanding of my decisions.

Tanya has been extremely helpful as a counsellor and has been instrumental in getting me on the right path for my mental help.
