Tanya Cotler, PhD

Clinical Psychologist

People may seek out therapy for many different reasons. Some for general curiosity about themselves and their minds; others due to a specific issue perhaps about their relationships or job; and still others because of a general feeling of need which they struggle to put to words. Moreover, many of us struggle with asking for help and there is often uncertainty pertaining to how someone else can help; we wonder how, who and what to ask; if it’s necessary; what we actually need, and whether another person can be trusted and will understand the situation. Indeed, Just as the reason one decides to come to treatment can vary, so too is the process of treatment a unique experience for every individual.

I believe in tailoring the treatment to the unique needs of each person. To me therapy in all its inclinations, involves a secure therapeutic relationship. The foundation of this secure relationship is the genuine acceptance of whatever you may bring to therapy, while always envisioning a prospect for change. It is my goal to give you a voice and make every effort to ensure that you feel known, appreciated and understood. I try to encourage curiosity about your self and others. Together we can explore past and present experiences, bringing about new possibilities for intimacy and independence in your life.
