Tamara Pearl

Tamara specializes in trauma counselling and psychotherapy. Tamara helps her clients access their own body-based inner wisdom so that they can find answers that are right for them and their life.

Approaching difficulties with curiosity and self-compassion allows us to transform and heal, and to connect to new resources.

Tamara is a Registered Clinical Counsellor who has worked and taught in the field of trauma healing for over 20 years in a variety of settings, including Chopra Addiction and Wellness Centre, Roots to Thrive ketamine assisted therapy program, and teaching for 4 years in Adler University’s Masters of Counselling Psychology and Art Therapy program.

Jeffrey Hoy

I am a therapist who wants to help you, in the way that works for you, and at the pace that works for you. I seek to create a safe, calm, and open place for you to explore what is really going on. I have lived a richly experienced life - and I know first hand what it's like to be in a difficult place. I believe that my broad life experience - with both positive and many negative experiences - gives me an exceptional ability to understand, empathize with, and inspire the clients I work with. My training enables me to help clients explore uncomfortable underlying emotions, thoughts, and memories that keep them from living the life they want.

Hunter Elyse

Through my own journey healing from C-PTSD, I learned first-hand the vital importance of working with the body. Therefore, my approach to counselling is a holistic one - integrating mind, body, and spirit. When we experience something that overwhelms our nervous system's ability to cope, a common protective response is to live in our head and become disconnected from our body and our soul. I support you in reconnecting to the parts of yourself that you may have abandoned or left behind somewhere along the way, so that you are able to experience ALL of who you are.

I can support you in increasing your awareness of your parts, patterns, and capacities so that you have a clearer understanding of your inner landscape and feel like you have more control over yourself and your life. I am a certified breathwork facilitator, and have completed up to Intermediate level III in my Somatic Experiencing (SE) professional training.
