Rewriting My Story

Overcoming my childhood trauma is my story now.  Surviving years of molestation, psychological abuse, and bouts of severe depression took a toll on my well-being and almost cost me my life.  I coped by masking my trauma, and fear of "not being good enough!".  I spent years trying to prove my worth -- I filled in all of the "right" blanks for a successful life, according to what I thought others expected.  Get an education (check), get married to a man (check), have kids (check), and have a career (check).  I fit the mold that I thought validated my worth.  

Yet, I was still unhappy and I broke down -- I needed to work through the trauma that was holding me back.  I worked hard and I am finally free to truly be authentic and loving myself.  I fill in the blanks for the life I choose now, and I am happier than I ever thought possible.

 If any of my stories resonate with you, please reach out and let me help you start rewriting your story.

Melissa Tar, B.A.


 I have a degree in Drama from the University of Windsor, and a post-grad diploma in Therapeutic Recreation from Canadore College.  I also continued my education by becoming a facilitator in Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) as recognized by The Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Always eager to advance my profession to best suit the needs of my clients, I'm is continuing to explore other therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).  I'm a published author as well.  I'm often with a pen in hand musing with new ideas for other books and novels.
