Testimonial #1

My family has worked with Dr. Soles over the past several months and count ourselves as very fortunate that we found her. We do not assign this high rating lightly–Dr. Soles’ professionalism, warmth, and support for our child and for us, as parents, have consistently impressed us. We have worked with other psychologists in the past and Dr. Soles’ ability to blend compassionate respect for her clients with her skilled approach to building childhood emotional health stands out. Each counselling session with her is filled with takeaway skills and lessons and we have no doubt that our child has greatly benefitted from her work with Dr. Soles..

Testimonial #2

Thank you SO much again.  You were more than of some help, Tamara – you paved the way for my re-empowerment, you validated me, you boosted me and you supported me in reclaiming my precious turf.  These are all important for my soul’s toolkit.  And I thank you.”


Tamara is by far the best therapist I’ve had. That’s saying a lot ( I had quite a few). She is caring and kind and funny. I haven’t seen her in a year or so but she still calls my mom to check in. I couldn’t have asked for a better more caring and helpful therapist. After years of seeing her I got my life on track; never thought I could.


I could nearly cry thinking of the progress our family has made since you first came into our lives. Thank you; this peaceful parenting path has been a real blessing for my marriage & my children.
