Kathleen studied at Queen’s University where she received her BA in Psychology. She is currently completing her internship at Family Supportive Services to complete her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counselling at Walden University.
She has a passion for working with children, youth and families that are struggling with mental health issues, and understands how one member’s mental health can have a profound impact on the entire family. Kathleen strives to always provide her clients with empathy, understanding and a space where they feel free to honestly express themselves without judgement. Her goal is to provide you with support and strategies to work through the inevitable conflict and challenges of life.
Kathleen believes in an evidence based, integrative approach that is modified to meet each client’s needs. She utilizes Cognitive Behavioral therapy to help clients uncover thoughts and behaviors that aren’t working for them and replace them with strategies that promote a greater sense of well-being. Depending on the specific needs of the client, her approach often incorporates Mindfulness techniques and Psychodynamic Therapy.
