Whichever season of life you are in, I welcome the opportunity to connect with you soon. Let’s explore together some hopeful options for yourself and your family.

As a child psychotherapist, I use my training in close observation to help make sense of a child's difficulties as I communicate with them through play , drawing, words and behaviour, allowing the child to begin to put into words the thoughts and feelings that lie behind their troubling behaviour.
Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy: Anxiety, Depression, Cutting Self Harm, Trauma, Divorce/Custody Issues, Eating Disorders, Oppositional Defiant Disorders. Adults: Relational Difficulties, Divorce, Work/Life Transitions, Self Destructive Behaviours are some of the reasons people choose to work with me. I am a Registered Psychotherapist, my background is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy- a therapeutic approach that embraces the work of all psychoanalytic therapies: object relations, ego psychology, self-psychology, mentalization and attachment theory. I tailor my approach to the individual child, adolescent or adult.

My primary approaches Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Family Systems, Mindfulness, Psycho-education and play therapy are also integrated.
Hi I'm Katie :) I love journeying with clients through life’s difficulties as they work to reach their counselling goals. I understand clients are often approaching me with some tough life issues and are sacrificing (time, finances, ect.) to pursue counselling. I'm compassionate, attentive and I am hopeful for change. I'm passionate about helping to empower clients to face mental health challenges so they can realize the hope that exists for them to live a full life. I also recognize the need to support, equip and educate family members, friends, and colleagues of those living with difficult mental health and personality issues.

From what anyone can tell you’ve got it all going for yourself. But, inside your overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, stressed. You've spent a lot of time just holding things together and you're tired. Or maybe it’s your child struggling. To everyone else it looks like they have it all but you are all too familiar with the call from school in the middle of your work day to pick them up. Maybe they have a stomach ache because of anxiety, or they got into another fight. Maybe they save it all for home where they melt down and just can't cope. You're exhausted and it’s time for a change.

If your child or teen is struggling with social emotional concerns, an Eating Disorder, family conflict or traumatic experiences and as a family you are curious about therapy and change I welcome you.

With 20 years in the field and a columnist with Metroland News and Newmarket Today, I work with children, adults, couples and families, supporting their mental health. Difficult experiences both past and present can anchor us, keeping us trapped in a space of anxiety, depression, anger and hurt. These emotions can be exhausting and overwhelming. As a therapist, I envision my role as the support to guide you toward making a shift in healing. We do not need to stay in our past, in our traumas and in our pain. We can move forward and thrive; we deserve to do so.

My experience over the years has taught me that anyone is capable of change if they want it. Life is difficult and as people we face challenges that make us feel helpless or broken. However, I believe that we are also resilient and with support, we can get through any obstacles that come our way. I want to be a support to anyone facing these dilemmas by giving you a voice and providing the opportunity to be heard. My goal is to improve the lives of clients by enhancing their social and emotional growth and providing solutions to enhance their mental health and well-being.

It is important for me to create connection, understanding, compassion, empathy and self-growth in your therapeutic experience.

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Aurora or for an Aurora play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in Aurora, and play counsellors.
