Andrea McTague

Andrea McTague

Show Host

Her approach is all about looking at people like people, not disorders, and providing coaching for conquering those limiters. She’s about as open-minded and direct as they come, animated and full-on, but her real strength lies in a tenacity that knows no limits. She has worked in schools, non-profits and private practice, and brings a varied cultural and religious knowledge to her practice.

Dr. Lindsay Sewall

Show Host

Lindsay brings enthusiasm, warmth, openness, and a dash of humour to establish a nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship, where clients are able to explore where they may be feeling stuck, develop new adaptive strategies, and create a more fulfilling life.
