Dr. Liz Tarshis, Ed.D., C.Psych

Psychotherapy + Counselling

I understand how important it is to build a trusting relationship with my clients, so I use a flexible style that is judgment-free and allows individuals to truly explore their feelings and experiences. My goal is to help clients recognize and build upon their strengths, enhance their coping skills, and develop the resiliency and confidence they need to improve the quality of their lives. Together, we work to identify and eliminate the roadblocks that may be impeding their path to greater self-awareness and self-acceptance.

For over 25 years as a Registered Psychologist, I have worked with students, young adults, professionals and parents across a wide spectrum of cultural, racial and religious backgrounds. I have training and experience in a range of areas that include:


  • Anxiety/Panic

  • Depression

  • Self-esteem

  • Family/Relationship Issues

  • Emotion Regulation

  • Grief and Loss

  • Life Transitions

  • Work/Life Balance

  • Learning Disabilities and ADHD

I provide a safe, respectful and supportive environment that promotes a sense of calm and acceptance and I incorporate self-compassion, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic and Cognitive/Behavioral strategies into my relational approach to therapy. I give my clients the space they need to develop new strategies for dealing with relationships, challenges and transitions.
