hello, i'm kate.
I am a Clinical Therapist with graduate degrees in Psychology and Social Work - I believe these disciplines and different approaches to care complement each other. My mission is to approach therapy co-operatively, working toward person-centered, impactful, and effective therapeutic care through individual therapy and community connection - promoting well-being not only across disciplines but different walks of life.
I provide counselling services to adults of all ages and adolescents (aged 14+). I believe each client is unique and accordingly tailor my practice to each individual.
I am trained in various modalities, from which I often draw in my practice; these include dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), EMDR, narrative therapy, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). My approach is variable, depending on what you would like to work through.
I have been in the mental health field for a number of years in various roles, working primarily with not-for-profit organizations in the Saint John area. I have presented and published on a range of topics including personality, attachment, executive function, substance use, and trauma - all of which complement my abilities as a clinician.
I know that the healing process is not the same for everyone and that rigid approaches to treatment may not always be appropriate. I am flexible in my work and continuously learn with and from my clients.
