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.

I was initially drawn to the psychology profession as I was interested in developing a deeper understanding of the mind and body connection. I believe that a healthier mind, leads to a healthier life. I really enjoy assisting people in developing a clearer and stronger sense of who they are, and helping them bring more purpose and meaning into their lives.
