Hi, I'm Kathie
I always remind myself that even though psychology is part of my every day, for you, taking that first step to reach out for support, can be a big step. So, with this in mind, it is really important to me that I provide a judgement-free, warm and professional space, for you. I like to provide a space within which you can reflect, reframe, and refocus on what is important to you.
