"I reached out to Tara as there was so much going on in my life and I felt so lost and listless with little sense of direction. My long-term nesting partner/wife was moving out and there was grief being processed as a result of this and a death in the family. I was burnt out on the business I’d been building for the past 7 years, and I wasn’t sure how, or if, I was going to continue pouring myself into a business I’d lost passion for. Tara did such a wonderful job helping me identify things that were holding me back, stories I was telling myself, and tightly-held beliefs that kept me in a cycle of high stress and little satisfaction. Now my stress levels are way down, my satisfaction is way up, and taking more time to myself, to enjoy life, to do things I’m passionate about, that inspire me and that really matter to me. The important things haven’t changed, but my focus has, and I can really feel the difference every single day. I’m happy in the present and hopeful for the future, and Tara definitely helped me find myself right here—right where I am."

Thank you so much Tara! Today's session was so encouraging for me to see how far we've come. I really do appreciate all that you've helped us discover and remember about ourselves"

"I decided it was time for me to get back into the dating scene, 4 years after ending a long-term relationship. I was apprehensive about this as I had not dated in over 30 years, so I reached out to Tara. Tara was so supportive! She made me immediately at ease with her friendly smile and laid back approach. I felt comfortable sharing things with her that my best friends don’t even know. She helped me reach all my goals and called me on my limiting beliefs. My self-confidence has soared - I even asked a cute guy on a date (and he said yes!). I highly recommend Tara!"

I can’t say enough good things about Tara’s relationship coaching! I was being held back by a situation I experienced in my relationship with my primary partner that I was having trouble moving past. After discussing it in a session, Tara gave me a framework to look at the situation with fresh eyes, and also advice on how to move forward. Extremely professional, highly knowledgeable, and very easy to talk too, Tara was great at helping me work through my problem and discover what was at the root of the issue. I feel a lot better and a more confident than before! I highly recommend her for anyone looking for relationship advice or coaching, it’s well worth it!- Jeff -

"Through working with Tara, I have been slowly learning to appreciate myself and see myself in a more positive light. The values and beliefs work we've done has forced me, in a good way, to think in ways I never have before. The homework she gave as part of our work together was challenging and hard at times which I've liked. Through this focused work, and our 1:1 sessions, I've been able to release the intense anxiety and stress I was experiencing before we began meeting and have been growing ever since. Tara's approach, including the way she can boil down my thoughts and concerns into more succinct summaries is impressive. I like the feeling that she understands me and I always leave our sessions feeling heard and with new perspectives".

"Thank you for working with us! It was an absolute pleasure. I wanted you to let you know, you did an amazing job, you brought a lot of different perspectives and helped us and myself look at things from a completely different perspective."

"Coaching with Tara was life-changing. I went into the coaching experience not knowing how it would help me. All I knew was that I wanted my journey in life to look different...but I had no idea how to get there. I was doing all the right things, support groups, therapy, and psychiatry, but I was still so sad and disheartened. Tara seemed to know exactly what I needed by our second session. In this session, she asked me to describe myself. I had nothing positive to say. I told her that I defined myself as a bi-polar, alcoholic, with an eating disorder. So basically, my identity statement was "I am ill." Tara jumped on this like white on rice! Tara helped me see that although I have these illnesses, they are not who I am today. I now believe that I am surviving and thriving in spite of these labels. My new identity statement contains words like confident, capable, awesome, healthy, and more. As I mentioned, I have been attending support groups and under the care of a psychiatrist and counsellor for years. Now, don't get me wrong, I still have to see to do these things in order to stay healthy...but Tara asked the pivotal question that changed the trajectory of my life! I am forever grateful!"

When my partner and I realized we had differing views of how we would like to pursue ethical non-monogamy, we sought out the support of Tara to help narrow the gap and move closer to an aligned vision. Tara provided a safe space for us both, asking thought-provoking questions that allowed us to open our minds and think about the situation differently. We walked away with a ton to think about, and a feeling of hope after what had been a tough few days navigating the situation ourselves. So grateful for Tara and her support!

Tara and André: I wanted to quickly share with you both a mini poly victory 🙂 My partner and I met April 2020 after both being in a place in our own lives where enough was enough and we wanted to FINALLY live and experience a relationship style that truly fit us. I'm happy to say that neither introduced the other to poly and that we both had done our homework, and continue to do our homework as the relationship goes on. We have experienced miscommunications, jealousy, moments of insecurity as well as doubt. And we have experienced so much joy, love, understanding, compassion, PASSION, and a trust like no other. I have happily shared a lot of your videos with my partner which have led to better understanding, new topics within poly we have not yet explored or discussed together and they have helped us learn and understand so much about poly as well as each other and ourselves. This is my long way of saying thank you. This weekend we started looking for a home that we share together.
