Katherine welcomes clients of all ages, from all backgrounds and she engages in a range of evidence-based practices and techniques stemming from cognitive behaviour therapy, solution-focused therapy, emotion-focused therapy, trauma-informed approaches, and mindfulness. 


She values creating a warm, open, authentic, and inclusive environment for clients to explore the therapeutic process in a way that is most meaningful for them.
