You will be invited to explore how your thoughts and feelings, past experience, and current circumstance come together to help or hinder you in your goals. Whether you are trying to choose a direction to take, are thick in the chaos of change, or are looking for the courage to stay the course, Kate offers judgement-free reflection and support. As the single mom of two now-grown children and as someone who changed careers from financial planning to psychotherapy in mid-life, Kate has a wisdom born of life experience. She gets that it can be hard to find the joy that must be there, on the other side of the pressures and burdens of everyday living. This genuine caring paired with professional training and technique in both individual and relationship therapy forms the bedrock of her therapeutic style. Away from the therapy office and screen, Kate spends much of her time in theatre and improv comedy, both on and off the stage. Kate has a dog named Valentine who was the smallest in a litter of cross-bred farm dogs and who now likes to jump through hoops for treats. Many Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and extended health care plans will cover services rendered by a Registered Psychotherapist.
