Tia Maric, Therapist 


Tia is inspired by a ‘brain-wise’ approach to helping clients better understand their thoughts, emotions and behaviors from a biopsychosocial perspective to effect change and emotional balance in their lives. Her style is tailored to the client’s needs and experiences in order to ensure best therapeutic practice. In addition, her experience in Neuroscience allows her to incorporate neuropsychotherapy as an added feature to therapy, helping clients better understand the underlying operations of their experiences

She is compassionate and empathetic and believes that the key to a good therapeutic alliance is to be an authentic therapist. She often uses an underlying theme of solution-focused therapy to target present day issues while pulling from other therapeutic modalities such as Cogntive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy and even Feminist therapy to tackle underlying issues contributing to current functioning.

Tia’s mandate is to use professional competencies to facilitate human change and growth.
