Tania is trained in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), DBT (Dialectical behavior therapy), Mindfulness Therapy, EDIT (Eating Disorder Intuitive Therapy) and intensive training in Couples Therapy. She is passionate about family dynamics and how they work. She utilizes an evidenced based therapy known as Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). This is a psychodynamic type of therapy that focuses on working with parents to help their children's mental health. This model has been found to be very effective for many childhood disorders, including anxiety, separation anxiety, school avoidance, and depression in children. The treatment is based in attachment theory but also integrates psychodynamic, developmental, trauma, social learning, and cognitive behavioral theories. Therapeutic sessions include the child and parent or primary caregiver. The primary goal is to support and strengthen the relationship between a child and his or her caregiver as a vehicle for restoring the child's cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning. Treatment also focuses on contextual factors that may affect the caregiver-child relationship. This type of therapy helps to heal the family as a unit and removes the burden and stigma from the individual child. They utilize an approach that appreciates the complexities of children's lives and well-being, including the family dynamics, school setting and deeper psychodynamic factors.


Tania completed her practicum and internship at Total Health, where she conducted many couple’s and family therapy sessions along with individual therapy for adults, children, and teenagers. Tania has been working in Private Practice helping couples, families, and individuals who are experiencing trauma, family conflicts, depression, anxiety, body image issues and relationship struggles.
