Kathleen has over 20 years of experience providing executive coaching and consulting services to leaders across financial, professional services, government and first responder settings. Marshalling secrets from social, organizational, and positive psychology, she’s helped many clients sharpen their uniqueness, communication skill, relational strength, decision-making savvy, and performance by removing mental roadblocks and inspiring new perspectives.
In the mental health arena, Kathleen approaches therapy like she approaches coaching but with a much wider lens on people and techniques. Influenced by her lived experience with family of origin addiction, surviving cancer, marital and parental struggles, she welcomes clients touched by similar experiences. She knows first-hand what it’s like to carry shame, anger, and sadness deep inside, while also knowing what it’s like to feel the freedom and peace of healing.
Beyond this, she has experience assisting police officers, veterans, men’s mental health, students, stress, self-esteem, women’s health, relationship issues, business professionals, anxiety, grief/loss, life transitions, and depression. Currently, she utilizes various treatment modalities in an eclectic and holistic fashion: narrative therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Person-centred Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).”
Education: Kathleen is nearing completion of her M.A. in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University as a student therapist in-training. She holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree, a post-graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management, a Certificate in Adlerian Professional Coaching, and a Certificate in Executive Team Coaching. She is also a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, and the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists.
