Katherine is a provisional psychologist with a Master of Counselling degree from the University of Lethbridge. She is trained in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Her goal is to provide help and support to those who want to break the cycle of pain and suffering, recover from adverse experiences, and live satisfying lives of wellness and joy. She uses a spiritual and holistic approach to assess and optimize all areas of an individual’s life, and this can include incorporating yoga and mindfulness meditation into her practice.
Her work is influenced by the Jungian, Rogerian, systems, and attachment theoretical orientations. Fully bilingual, she provides services in either French or English.
Born in Germany, as a child of military parents, her family was often on the move. She was forced to learn to use discipline, focus, and control as her upbringing had little physical stability. Because of her childhood, she became interested in working with those experiencing unexpected and extreme stress. She also became interested in understanding the influence stress can have on future generations. Prior to psychology, she studied photojournalism, with the purpose of capturing stories of post-traumatic growth and the power of human connection.
