Tara Murphy (She/Her)

Counselling Therapist Intern

I am a Counselling Therapist Intern completing my Masters of
Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. As we
all move on and re-adjust from a pandemic-impacted world, I
am hopeful that mental health care becomes a regular part of
taking care of ourselves and our health – just like a family
doctor or dentist. I am honoured to be on the provider-side of
care that supports you in feeling complete – as you.

Whether its daily stressors, relationship complications, or a
lingering childhood hurt, the start to one’s journey of growth
and healing can begin anytime. I strive to provide clients with
non-judgmental and open-minded support, emphasizing your
strengths and meeting you where you’re at.

I’ve had the honour of walking alongside many diverse
individuals on their healing journey through addictions,
complex trauma, intergenerational trauma, relationship
issues, abuse, grief, depression, anxiety, and a range of other
mental health obstacles. These experiences and perspectives
have shaped me as a person and the collaborative style I have
with clients.

My approach works to balance client-centred, acceptance-
based, cognitive-behavioural and solution-focused therapies,
each tailored to meet the clients current needs. I apply these
through a Culturally Responsive and Socially Just lens. I am
also trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Level 1 &
2), and Eye-Movement-Desensitization-Reprocessing (EMDR).
