Monica Tan, RSW, MSW

As a registered social worker with over 11 years of experience as a clinician, people leader and supervisor, I understand that mental health is rich, complex and unique to each individual.

I am committed to creating a safe and collaborative environment to support getting to your goals in therapy. Together we will build practical and effective strategies to manage strong emotions, expand your resilience and strengthen your relationship with yourself and others.

My work is centered around a holistic and integrative therapeutic approach that cares for the body, mind and spirit. I use a variety of treatment approaches, such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness practices.

I am experienced in moving people through anxiety, depression, recovery from traumatic experiences, grief, self-esteem issues, relationship issues and life transitions. I am registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Services Workers.

Together we can heal old wounds and re-install your power in the present. I look forward to transforming unconscious patterns to conscious choices with you.
