Hello, my name is Katrina and I look forward to learning about your healing journey. Before becoming a clinical mental health counselor, I worked as both an elementary school teacher and school administrator in the U.S., Italy, and China. These roles introduced me to the impact our home environments and personal relationships have on our holistic health and on the decisions we say 'Yes' or 'No' to.

I transitioned into clinical mental health counseling while living in Shanghai with my family. This experience offered me the opportunity to work with adolescents, adults, and couples from six continents and to learn how, despite cultural and linguistic differences, we all seek meaning, purpose, and acceptance in our lives. In addition, it provided me with the unexpected opportunity to learn how to offer crisis counseling online and in-person to those living under COVID lockdown and quarantine conditions, an experience that prepared me to participate in on-the-ground crisis counseling services in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.

In my current practice, I work online and in-person with adults 17 and older on a range of mental health concerns, such as depression, bipolar, and anxiety management, struggles with self-harm and suicidal ideation, LGBTQIA+ empowerment, and life transitions. In addition to offering services based in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and affirmative counseling, I invite clients to consider a constructivist approach, a form of therapy that encourages us all to use the power of our perspective to create meaning out of the challenges we have survived. When we understand the 'why' behind our lived experiences, we expand our capacity to develop healthier thoughts and behaviour.
