Tara received her Honours degree in Psychology from Saint Mary's University, and later received her Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Toronto. She worked as a Registered Psychologist in Halifax for several years before moving home to Cape Breton with her family in 2018. Tara then opened her private practice, Tara Forgeron Psychology, with the desire to bring a wellness-inspired approach to psychological services in Cape Breton.
Tara Forgeron Psychology now employs several clinicians who have a shared mission: to utilize evidence-based psychological approaches to teach people how to shift from experiencing mental and emotional distress, to feeling a sense of peace, fulfillment, and purpose in their mind, body, and spirit.
Tara strongly believes in the importance of taking a proactive approach to mental health, meaning that individuals do not need to have a diagnosis to seek treatment. She believes that there lies incredible power in exploring how individuals can feel well, as opposed to solely focusing on reducing suffering. Tara loves teaching individuals various ways to retrain their brains and integrate new habits to ultimately live a rich and meaningful life. She has a passion for inspiring people to live their most joyful lives and loves working with individuals who are motivated to take positive and healthy action to achieve their wellness goals.
