“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”

Ms. La’Tarra Tynes, founder of The Butterfly Effect Psychotherapy, always loved butterflies because they remind her that it’s never too late to transform ourselves.  Change and transformation is a powerful thing! 

Our Vision at The Butterfly Effect Psychotherapy Services is to help you change, transition, adapt and grow into the best version of yourself. Similar to the way the cocoon is the comfort zone of the caterpillar, it has to emerge from this state. If not, we would not have the beautiful butterfly. Likewise, we as humans, have to sometimes get out of our comfort zone and try new things if we want to move forward and unstuck from unhealthy behaviours, thoughts and patterns. 

What Makes Us Unique?

Get Real Results
It is our mission to provide you with real transformation. Our team will relentlessly pursue what is preventing you from being the best version of yourself. We will work with you to get to the root of your issues.
Let’s get to the bottom of it – together!

Your Voice Matters

Our approach is warm and supportive, while challenging you to help enhance change. The smallest change can cause big effects in your life and we deliver our therapy based on the butterfly effect approach. If you are not sure where to start, you are at the right place – our job is to guide you with that. 

We use modern, evidence-based therapy approaches to help you reach your goals. Whether you tried therapy before or if this is your first time, we are confident that we can offer you a new approach to best suit your needs. 

It is a privilege to have people be their most vulnerable selves and share their most painful moments, while I help them transform them into something so much more beautiful
