I offer one-on-one therapy catered to your unique needs. We will set overarching therapy goals, and check-in at each appointment about current concerns. I also offer couple therapy. You, your partner, and myself will set personalized goals for our work together. Each session we will check-in on goal progress as well as current challenges and successes. Finally, all of my services are offered online. I know one of the hardest parts of coming to therapy is finding the time. Schedule your session on my secure online platform.

In T3M 1H5 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

In my practice as a psychotherapist I assist individuals to understand forces within that cause suffering & confusion. My approach is engaging, compassionate and expansive. I have over 15 years of experience with many types of people from different cultures & backgrounds. I believe most people have a mixture of complex emotions & complicated life experiences. But most everyone is trying to live a better life. People often have ‘scripts’ of who they are & why they came to be living the way they are. I help people develop ways of reflecting on what has been, what is, and what might be. This opens the possibilities for more choices in life. Your life can be different if you want it to be.

What Clients are saying: "Kathryn makes sessions seem like a casual comfortable conversation with a friend. I knew that she had a purpose in our conversation and didnt feel afraid to tell her anything. She doesnt just sit there and listen to me talk. She seems to know what Im trying to say. She takes psychotheraphy to a whole new level." "I found Kathryn interesting, information and encouraging at a time when I felt it difficult to express my feelings. Her charming manner made our sessions enjoyable, and helpful...I found it useful to take notes as there were so many great suggestions. I would recommend Kathryn to anyone that is apprehensive about discussing personal issues."

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

Are my personal and emotional struggles, anxiety, and depression just “all in the mind” or is there a biological basis to it? Most psychotherapy theories only focus on the “mind” and often fail to address the biological causes and treatment of mental illness. As a psychopharmacologist, Dr Mervin is uniquely equipped to counsel people with mental disorders concerning all their antidepressant and medication-related issues. His integrative approach recognizes the importance of biological (medical & pharmacological), psychological (emotions, cognition's and behavior), social (family and community), and spiritual (faith and religion) factors.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

My approach to Interpersonal Psychotherapy (ITP) is a safe, respectful, natural, and dynamic interactive process. I view the client-therapist experience as an interpersonal relationship that is founded on the principles of mutual respect and genuine caring. The therapeutic focus is largely on current relationships and how those relationships are perceived in a client’s life. Additionally, I encourage the exploration of conscious and unconscious emotional issues. Most persons possess a wealth of undeveloped strengths, assets, and capacities. Most of us use only a small percentage of our physical, mental, spiritual, and relational potentialities. By accessing a range of therapeutic techniques s....

If you're ready to finally stop suffering, step into freedom and harmony with others, and see real movement towards your goals, don't hesitate to reach out.

Joyce Musekiwa, Bsc, MBA, MACP

Counsellor

In T2Y 3X6 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

As a therapist, I am guided by the notion that crises, trauma and hardships represent opportunities for change when healing is allowed to take place. I also work with the premise that a major component of healing is the relationship between the client and the therapist. Therapy provides an environment that can give you the opportunity to gain insight, process emotions, understand yourself better and facilitate positive change. I offer a safe, comfortable environment that is free of judgement where you will be accepted and met just where you are in your healing journey. I use a variety of techniques that are tailored uniquely to you.

Social Worker - Marriage & Family Therapist

In T2T 0C2 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

Life is difficult for all of us and it's often a trap when we focus on "just being happy." The truth is we've evolved for survival, NOT HAPPINESS. Happiness is a by-product of living a meaningful and fulfilling life. How do we do that? By living in alignment with our values, that is, what matters to us and what we really are about. It's been said that we're either living for our resume or for our eulogy. My therapy is called ACT - a dynamic new approach based on mindfulness, acceptance and committed action.

Psychotherapy takes a lot of courage to begin but it will help you grow and live the life you desire. I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy. I draw from multiple different theories because I want help you in a way that suits your need and personality. The primary theories I use are Attachment theory, Emotion Focused Therapy and Interpersonal Neurobiology. Most of our distress comes from our unhealthy view that we have of ourselves, our emotions, others and the world. Our time together will be processing these beliefs, developing new ones and fostering strengths and coping strategies.

Registered Psychologist

In T1S 1B3 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

In therapy, I play a small role in creating a space for you to talk openly, and confidentially, about your thoughts, feelings and concerns. I work collaboratively with my clients to set each session agenda, to develop meaningful goals and to evaluate our progress together. I am transparent about how I conceptualize my client's situation and how ready they may be to make changes. You may find it unique that I was trained to avoid note-taking during therapy in order to be fully present for my clients.

Psychotherapy sounds complicated. It does not need to be. It occurs when two people talk it can be effective or ineffective. With a combination of experience, education and practice a therapist can help create a therapeutic encounter that is beneficial and effective for a person. Raue, Goldfried, & Barkham, (1997) highlight how the therapeutic relationship is key to a client progress or engagement in therapy. It is my desire to create a space where this relationship can grow and be beneficial to my clients.

Whether we face challenges, recognize negative thinking, behaviour, or relationship patterns or we simply strive for personal growth and potential psychotherapy can be very beneficial. It helps us to understand why we do what we do; it helps us to understand who we are and how to initiate a change. It is important to learn how to live here and now and to be able to say hat is important to us. I incorporate elements of psychodynamic therapy and I agree that increased self-awareness can initiate a change.

Dr. Val has been a psychotherapist for almost twenty years. She is versatile in her approaches and acquainted with many theoretical bases, but above all she is a good listener and really cares about her clients, and they can feel that. What Dr. Val has found is that this is a two-way relationship and generally speaking, her clients can be as helpful to her as she is to them. How empowering is that for each person who walks in? Clients build their confidence with Dr. Val.
