Hey, I'm Kate,
I'm glad you are here!
I help individuals, couples and families reconnect with themselves and one another. Life can be messy. We can feel overwhelmed and exhausted when ourselves, or our loved ones are suffering, and want nothing more than to find a solution. No one is meant to do it alone.
Let’s connect you to what's most important to you and those you care about. I look forward to supporting you towards greater ease and well-being.
I provide counselling and coaching to kids, adults, couples and families.
Together, we will create solutions for your specific situation, which may include:
Grief and Loss
What you can expect from our time together:
You will discover ways of interacting with those you care about in a way that you feel proud of
You will develop greater clarity and commitment to your values
You will be supported in developing greater awareness, self-compassion and self-care
You will deepen connection to yourself and others; enhancing ease, openness and understanding.
Along our journey together I will celebrate with you, acknowledging what is working while keeping you focused on what you want. I look forward to supporting you in creating greater harmony in heart and home.
How Does It Work
Simply reach out to set up a free 20 minute discovery session to make sure we are a good fit. After that we will arrange to meet weekly or bi-weekly at a time that works for you and start creating the change you are hoping for.
Individual session: $175/1hr
Couple/Family session: $200/1hr
*Please note, I am a registered Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association; your insurance provider may cover some or all of the session fee. Please check with them prior to booking.
I have completed my master’s degree in counselling psychology with additional studies in Systemic Family Therapy. I have a wide range of experience providing therapeutic support to children, adults, couples, and families. This work includes a decade of contributions promoting positive mental health in the public school system, as well as internships with Carya Family Counselling and the Calgary Family Therapy Centre.
I believe that healing happens in relationship; I have helped individuals, couples and families develop greater insight into their emotions, patterns of interaction and collaboratively solve problems leading to enhanced ease, joy and connection.
I am an integrative therapist, weaving Narrative, Family-Systems, Solution-focused and Attachment-based theories and modalities into my work. I am a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction facilitator and incorporate the power of present-moment awareness and somatic wisdom into my practice. I’ve been described as calm, compassionate, a skilled listener, genuine, present, and supportive. I work in collaboration with clients to co-construct goals and solutions that create positive change.
I take care of my mental well-being by moving my body in the outdoors, appreciating beauty, connecting with loved ones, practicing meditation and continually learning.
I believe it is a privilege to support folks in deepening their connection with themselves and the ones they care about most. I look forward to supporting you in creating meaningful shifts in your relationships and well-being.
