Taryn was very helpful in assisting me with getting my own thoughts organized and motivating me to reach my goals. I would highly recommend her!

Taryn is a great listener! Her insight and perspective is very helpful. She is warm, non-judgmental, empathetic, accepting, and encouraging.

Taryn is a great listener – she makes me feel validated and safe enough to talk about my problems in a judgement-free zone. I appreciate her uplifting advice during our session and always makes me believe and feel that I can do better and that I am doing better.

Literally amazing and checks in even when I’m going through things and can’t focus on getting on the app or being in contact, amazing at keeping me grounded and focused.

I haven't really had many sessions with her yet, but she seems to be understanding and willing to listen.

Written by C.A. on Jun 10, 2022 after therapy with Taryn for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Taryn is a great Therapist! She is so patient and listens to absolutely everything and helps me see views from different perspectives. I was so nervous about starting therapy and opening up about my issues but Taryn made me feel at ease from our very first session. Often I get upset during our sessions but Taryn never fails to support me and puts a smile on my face. Tonights session ended up with a sing song and it is now my new theme song for when I am feeling low! I would highly recommend Taryn!

Taryn and i have made a great connection.. she understands me and that’s very helpful for me to be open and honest with her as my Therapist. I would strongly recommend her to family or friends that need help.

Written by A.N. on Feb 04, 2022 after therapy with Taryn for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, intimacy-related issues, and sleeping disorders

Taryn really listens to what I'm saying and offers advice that keeps me moving forward, not focusing on the past.

Taryn has really helped me to increase my self worth, she has listened carefully and given me sound advice, tips and tricks to manage my anxieties. She has given me tools to practice and has helped me take control of my behaviours and actions. She has given me permission to stand up for myself as this is something I've struggled with. I'd really reccomend Taryn as a therapist!!!

Taryn is really amazing to work with! I have only gone through a few sessions thus far, but I already feel as though I am working through alot! I would highly recommend!

Written by K.I. on Dec 31, 2021 after therapy with Taryn for 1 month on issues concerning intimacy-related issues

My favourite thing about working with Taryn is how kind and genuine she is, and that she isn't judgemental. I find it so hard to open up to people at first, but it didn't take me long to become comfortable talking to Taryn and feel a rapport with her. No matter what frame of mind I've been in before our sessions, I always end the session feeling encouraged, and better within myself.

My favorite thing about receiving therapy from Taryn is that any problem I present to her, she suggest solutions and she suggests how those solutions will feel so I am aware of me improving my mental health.

Written by S.H. on Nov 26, 2021 after therapy with Taryn for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, trauma and abuse, adhd, and eating disorders

I've only had a few sessions so far but she's already helped me so much and I cannot hype her enough! She actively listens to me and is able to keep up with my chaotic mind while still keeping me focused on the end goal. My self esteem is already starting to improve and I have confidence that my mental health will keep improving with her help. Truly grateful to her for all of her help so far

Work with me!
