Sitka Wellness Centre Society

Sitka Wellness Society

In 2019, I founded the Sitka Wellness Society. It was born from the desire to create more opportunities for people to access local wellness services. Our main goals include making wellness services more attainable and bringing free or low-cost programming and training opportunities to the community. We have a small team of local practitioners committed to supporting you in person and behind the scenes to make this possible.

Testimonials

"Tara has quite simply changed my life! In just a few sessions of EMDR, my attitude to some of the traumatic events in my past has changed completely. Thoughts that would have crippled me with emotion and anxiety no longer do so. I’m amazed at the changes that this has brought into my life and grateful to Tara. She is professional, knowledgeable, gifted, compassionate and caring which is a beautiful balance and I highly recommend her."
- N. M.

"Tara is a wonderful counsellor and guide for this exercise. She is patient and gentle while professional and insightful. When I try to explain EMDR to people, I find myself saying it is like moving big building blocks that have lodged themselves in my emotional memory. I have done different types of trauma work before and with the EMDR I could do big pieces quickly and effectively. The result was almost immediate. If you are even a bit curious, I recommend going to see for yourself!"
- D. G.

"A beautiful soul, and a beautiful heart. Tara is amazing at what she does and the whole world needs to know. Keep going Tara. We need more of you and your love in this world."
- T. N.

"If everyone cared about young people even a fraction of how Tara does, this world would be a much better place. This lady has a huge heart, and an even greater talent."
- Z. B.

My Approach

Each individual coming to therapy is unique, attempts to do the best possible with the resources available, has wisdom, creativity and strength. Everyone has the right to self-determination.

Talk to me.

I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the counselling therapies that I practice and will be open to trying new ideas and approaches that you are interested in. I am happy to offer a free 20 minute consultation which will help us both determine if we are a suitable therapeutic fit for each other.

So - how do we meet?

Right now, I am open as my office space is large enough to maintain social distancing, but if public health indicates a need to change this, sessions will go back to being remote or online.

I also offer sessions as an outreach model: in nature, in a coffee shop, on a walk, etc.
