Katherine specializes in the treatment of anxiety disorders and insomnia. She is particularly skilled in working with the interface between anxiety and sleep difficulties. Her interventions often address: emotion management; decision making; perfectionism; people pleasing; procrastination; relationship difficulties; burn-out; stress management; cross-cultural experiences; and exploring and developing creative potential.
On a personal note, Katherine enjoys riding her bike, working with wool (in any form!), and family adventures. She identifies as Canadian, Kiwi, and Indigenous (Gwich’in). She/her/hers are her pronouns.
Katherine provides evidence-based psychological treatment, primarily from within the frameworks of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). She adapts her interventions to fit each of her client’s individual needs and draws from Motivational Interviewing, Positive Psychology, and a range of other therapeutic frameworks.
