About Me

 

Hi, my name is Jason Tucker and I have been working in mental health in a variety of programs and roles since 2012. Since 2016 I have worked as a counsellor with the Nova Scotia Health Authority. In my work, I try to blend my training with your expertise about you and your life. Using this approach, I have partnered with my clients to make truly meaningful changes in their lives and helped them get back to living the life they want to live. In my experience, our values provide us with a compass that helps us take ACTion towards realistic goals and help us to get back to living our lives while helping us navigate and explore the challenges life presents.

I am an active member of the Association of Contextual Behavioral Sciences Association as well as a member of the local Atlantic chapter. I have a passion for continuing education and am always exploring new opportunities to expand my therapy tool box.

Why Should you chose me?

In the words of a dear friend and mentor, "Maybe you shouldn't." I remember discussing the topic years ago, how does someone know if a counsellor or therapist is the right fit for them? And simply put not every therapist is right for every client. Therapy is a very personal experience and establishing a connection with the counsellor is honestly the most important part because it means you are comfortable and can open up and focus in on what is true and important for you. For this reason, I encourage people to shop around and be skeptical of those who promise you quick fixes and absolutes. 

For myself when I am helping a friend or a loved one find a counsellor I encourage them to look for someone who has the skill set needed and shows a commitment for ongoing growth and training as science is constantly evolving. 

Based on the above if you have any questions about if I might be the right fit for what you need reach out and lets
