About Kate

Individual and Couple Psychotherapist

I have been in private practice for the past 30 years and am a highly trained and experienced clinician. I am a Clinical member of the Ontario Society of Psychotherapists, a Registered member of the College of Social Work, and a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. As well, I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist (EFT), currently the only certified EFT therapist in Guelph. I have had extensive post graduate training in both Individual and Relationship Therapy as well as training in sex therapy.

 

Clients who come to see me are often seeking assistance for both personal and work-related issues.  Such issues can include anxiety and drepression, concerns about how they manage loss, relationship concerns, difficulties with emotional or physical closeness and difficulties with IBS or chronic headaches and other physical symptoms.

 

My therapeutic interventions focus on both emotions and thoughts and are evidence-based and supported by an extensive body of research. Therapeutic outcomes can include an end to difficult and destructive patterns of behaviour, a deeper awareness of self and stronger and richer relationships. Clients frequently describe my work as focused and as having clear goals. My therapeutic style has been described as actively engaged, warm and empathic and patients describe the therapeutic  process as potentially transformational.
