I highly recommend Tara to anyone looking for counselling services. Her kind and compassionate approach coupled with her professionalism and excellent training has made it easy for me to refer patients to her. I am so grateful to know a great counsellor in the Kelowna area and know we will work together in the years to come. kelownahomeopathy.ca
I have been seeing Tara for almost 2 years now, and have found that she is very good at what she does. I like that I am not just send home with papers to read, to find out how I can fix myself. And also Tara doesn’t sit there and just write stuff down, she actually spends the whole time paying attention to me, her client. I travel almost 2 hours just to talk to her for that sometimes 1 hour. I have struggled with depression and other mental diseases for many many years, for the first time in my life I have found someone that I truly believe can help me get better.
As a school counsellor, I have referred a number of students to Tara Miller. Tara provides our students with service quickly and reliably. Tara is effective because she connects incredibly well with youths; she is kind, approachable and driven to provide excellent, research-based methods in her practice. Her biggest asset is her ability to build trusting relationships with teens. My students consistently let me know that they look forward to seeing Tara because she is helping them to feel happier and more in control of their lives. I am always confident that a great counselling relationship will be established between Tara and my students when I refer them to her practice.
I have greatly improved since seeing Tara, especially in the area of dealing with people and my trust issues with other people. For someone like me, large crowds of people are terrifying and for what I do, I have to be in front of large crowds sometimes. My anxiety used to go through the roof. Now I have ways to help keep it under control. My anxiety no longer keeps me home from school and my grades have improved greatly.
I have seen other counsellors and have been told what I already know: make more time for myself, eat right, and practice yoga. I hit a new pothole in my life and was referred to Tara. Over the past 6 months, I have been given methods to help reduce my new onset of anxiety and been reminded that the power to overcome life’s obstacles resides in myself….I just needed a bit of tweeking. I appreciate Tara’s gentle approach, her honesty, and the safe place she creates for me to be honest with myself.
Tara is awesome. Not just because of what she does but in general she is one of those awesome people. She just gets it. I look forward to my sessions and I’ve come a long way. I like the scientific approach her counseling takes because it’s realistic and palatable.
