Tara is a writer, coach and grief consultant and is deeply grateful to have joined the team at C&C Resources for Life.
Tara has worked as a Life and Relationship Coach for more than twelve years, and is honoured to support those at the intersection where grief and relationships meet. She has nearly completed her first book, Grief: A Love Story, that began after weathering significant personal losses in 2015, and is in the process of research for her next book which will explore the presence of grief in our workspaces and its impact.
In addition to working with hundreds of individuals and couples as a Certified Professional Co-Active coach, Tara is also trained as a birth doula, an Educator for the Gottman Institute, and in Organizational and Systems Relationship Coaching.
One thought has stood out in her work with those in the throes of grief, and that is “We really have to get better at this.” Not only as human beings who are in relationship with other human beings, but as employers, leaders and co-workers, too. Tara will be spearheading C&C Resources’ expansion into corporations and non-profit organizations, supporting them as they create what she calls a “Positive Grief Culture” in our workspaces. “Grief isn’t going anywhere, from all the various beginnings and endings of our lives, so we’d be served to find a way to support it and empower others to do the same.”
Tara is relatively new to Kamloops. She grew up in Smithers, BC, then relocated to Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland for more than 20 years. She moved to the area in 2017 to be closer to family and enjoy a slower pace. Tara lives with her husband, adopted son and rescue dog in an old house that also happily accommodates her retired parents. When she isn’t working, you can find Tara and her crew hiking local trails, cycling, enjoying some of the local breweries and cooking up a mostly-vegetarian storm.
