Meet Tara

Over 25 years ago, I earned a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from McGill University which fueled my passion for helping people become more active participants in their own lives.

 

I worked as a child psychologist and dedicated myself to the field of education, supporting children, parents and schools through the rising tides of childhood anxiety, ADHD and bullying.​ This work revealed to me the hugely transformative power of social and emotional intelligence.

Many of my observations from this time crystallized in a new approach to social and emotional learning that I developed with a colleague, and which became the cornerstone of the Institute of Social Emotional Education, established in 2015.

 

Encouraged by feedback from the world's leading social emotional intelligence experts, I started my own consulting firm in 2019 to share a tailored version of this approach with a wider audience. 

 

Today, my mission is to help as many people as possible develop the social and emotional skills needed to flourish in their personal and professional lives.
