Here's the good news: OCD recovery is possible! As a clinician trained in Exposure and Response Prevention (Ex/RP) therapy (the gold-standard treatment for OCD ), I will collaborate with you and your family to support you.
Perhaps it started with one or two jarring and disturbing thoughts or images or an unshakable feeling that something wasn't right. Desperate to get rid of this unsettling experience, you performed a behaviour or mental act that you just felt compelled to complete, and at first, it seemed to help. Now you are caught in a vicious cycle where you feel the overwhelming urge to engage in certain thoughts or behaviours over and over in search of relief. You're stuck, and you desperately want to get out. If you can relate, you are not alone. Obsessive -compulsive disorder is an experience that affects 1-2% of the population.

My specialty is working with PTSD, Occupational Stress Injury, emotional and behavioral dysregulation and obsessive thoughts.
What is your outlet to address childhood issues, operational traumatic events, angry spells, depression or anxieties? Perhaps drink or two, shopping spree or excessive porn watching is the way to calm your mind. Do you feel preoccupied with non-medical use of drugs and start a day with a piece of a sweet cake are the ways to give you a rush of dopamine to your pleasure center in your brain to forget, to calm down, and decompress. Perhaps, you can find out if your behaviors are becoming out of control and how you can regulate your out-of-control thoughts and emotions and learn if these behaviors have anything to do with your past...

Sometimes we feel exhausted, defeated, or like we are constantly battling with our brain and might need some assistance to sort through our thoughts, feelings, or emotions. Especially with the ongoing uncertainty of Covid-19, which can present additional pressures. You may be experiencing the added stress of fear, anxiety, and/or financial struggles. Whatever the case may be, therapy can assist in navigating life stressors, building resiliency, and overcoming negative thought patterns that keep us "stuck". Using a biopsychosocial model, biological, psychological, and social factors are all considered to ensure a holistic approach.

As the parent of a struggling child, you often find yourself questioning what more you can do to help them feel better. It seems like you've tried everything but nothing seems to work. You notice changes in their behaviour and you wonder if it will get worse. You find yourself walking on eggshells around your child for fear of making it worse. You find it scary to reach out for help for fear your parenting will be called into question, or worse, you'll be told nothing can be done. You want to find someone who truly understands what you're going through.

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.

Are you bothered by a past trauma? Symptoms of PTSD after a trauma are completely normal, but sometimes we can get stuck in a vicious cycle of negative thoughts, intense emotions, and feeling on edge. All of this can feel overwhelming and exhausting. We can help: physical & sexual abuse survivors, veterans, first responders (e.g. police officers, fire fighters, paramedics, nurses and doctors), and people who have had traumatic grief and loss.

Productive psychotherapy occurs within the context of a positive therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client, so often times the first one or two sessions are focused on a consultation to review the client’s concerns and for us to see if we are a good fit to work together. During this time, I will make recommendations for a treatment plan and will ask for the client’s feedback.

Have you ever felt alone, disconnected or abandoned? I’ve had those moments too. Growing up amidst parental mental illness came with a lot of challenges but it also gave me compassion and understanding. We needed the support of a caring community of family and friends to help us walk through many difficult times. My lived experiences inspired me to study psychology and human behavior for much of my adult life. This pursuit has provided me with the opportunity to help others so they can feel supported on their journey.

This position allows me to continue to focus on the trauma therapy work for which I have a great passion, as well as collaborating with the Psychology Matters team to meet the greater needs of our community. Having worked in this field for 17 years I've gained a deep appreciation for the influence of our early development on our present ability to cope. With this and the framework of EMDR I am witnessing amazing growth in the people that I am working with.
