I primarily use CBT, which is goal oriented for problem solving; Mindfulness , which incorporates meditation and is "present" oriented; and EFT which is based in the belief that we construct ourselves through our emotions; I am also Palliative Care trained.
Clients seeking my help have difficulty coping, and feel emotionally overloaded; but they are also ready for a change. Their distress can create anxiety and depression that results in negative thoughts, which influence your behavior and emotions. Avoiding unpleasant emotions can cause harm and inappropriate reactive behaviors. Emotional and psychological support for issues involving depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, relationship issues, self-improvement, are some of the stressors I work with. Through counselling we can focus on your needs and set goals that will ultimately give you tools to cope with life on life's terms.

I am a registered psychotherapist providing counselling to teens, families, adults and couples. My specialized expertise is in anxiety, depression, ADHD and ASD, giftedness, acute and chronic medical conditions, special needs and vicarious trauma for professionals and care-givers. I teach mindfulness as a way of finding peace in the present moment. Mindfulness strategies develop awareness of thoughts, feelings and automatic stress responses, so that we can learn to pause, stay calm, and choose how we respond in challenging interactions.

Hi I'm Katie :) I love journeying with clients through life’s difficulties as they work to reach their counselling goals.
