Tanya Young

EMDR Basic Training

Tanya Young Counselling & Wellness

I’m a Registered Social Worker/Psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience in the field. I take great care in holding space for your experiences, and personalize my therapeutic approach based on your situation and needs. Together we can set measurable goals to help you improve the circumstances that brought you to counselling. I can help you unpack attachment wounds, the impact of trauma, and challenge unhelpful thinking and behaviour patterns that could be keeping you stuck. As a mom, empath, and highly sensitive person (HSP), I know what it’s like to juggle competing demands, feeling pulled in all directions. I have walked my own road with trauma and mental health, and have lived experience with parenting anxious, neurodivergent, and medically complex children. I know how difficult life can be, and how important it is to build in your own healing. Life can be challenging AND meaningful. I can help you find the “and.” I am passionate about helping folks as they navigate the complexities of the world we live in.

There is no problem too big, or small. Our experiences are relative and will affect each one of us differently. I know how hard it can be to make that first contact looking for support. Please contact me for a free 15-minute consultation to explore whether my services are a good fit.
