Tiffany Thomas-Killam, RYT Clinical Mental Health Intern (She, Her)
Amongst the top of my personal core values is authenticity. My hope for client sessions is well summarized by Dr. Brene Brown in her quote, “Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. To me, it’s all about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”
Together, when we show up to be our honest and our true selves, we create an empowering environment of trust and collaboration. I want to sit with you, listen, and form a team together, as a unit. To get you there, I seek to provide empathy, view the world through your eyes, and elicit your inner thoughts, feelings, and emotions. We must know where we are to see where we are going.
I have a passion for simplistic and practical approaches that can be used in your lifelong journey. As a past teacher and yoga instructor, I have a strength for taking something that may seem complicated and breaking it down into something relevant and actionable.
Whatever may have brought you to this page – whether that be anxiety, relationship problems or a desire for an empathetic alliance to help you process life – I’m interested! We all deserve and need a little help from time to time. We are served by moving through our lives with intention and connection, and I would be honored to be that help you seek. Reach out to discuss the next step – You’re worth it!

Within the classroom, weight room, and the GSA, Tiffany saw a great need for mental health resources that contributed to her change in career.
