Harmony Health & Wellness (HHW) was established by Jacqueline Tan, a seasoned and highly regarded health practitioner. Jacqueline is a Registered Psychotherapist with CRPO (College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario), and a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (RMFT) with CAMFT (the Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy). She has extensive working experience from a variety of settings such as medical clinic, non-profit organization, and private settings, and has proven effectiveness in helping individuals, groups, couples, and families in fostering positive changes.
Jacqueline holds 2 Masters Degrees, one in science and the other in Clinical Counselling. Prior to embarking on her counselling career, she enjoyed a successful profession in IT and Business Consulting. Although she achieved her "goal of early retirement" through her first career, the demanding hours of computer work and the work stress took a toll on her physically and mentally, leading to severe back pain.
Motivated by her own quest for effective therapies and treatments not only for her own back problems, but also for people facing similar struggles, she founded the health clinic with a focus primarily on physical treatments initially for chronic pain and illness.
During her time as the clinic coordinator, Jacqueline realized that, while many clients exhibited physical symptoms, their underlying struggles were often rooted in deeper emotional distress, such as stress, anxiety/depression, relationship issues, and so on. Her unwavering fascination with understanding the intricacies of human nature, exploring people's inner experiences and their beliefs in life merged seamlessly with her passion for helping others. It propelled her to pursue her second Master's degree in Clinical Counselling, that laid the foundation for her to evolve into a highly regarded therapist in the subsequent years.
Throughout her life journey, Jacqueline has gained a unique insight of the multi-dimensioned nature of human experience. She integrates this wisdom and insight with her extensive clinical training, and brings with her a deep sense of empathy and compassion to every Individual & couple/family session with clients.
