Katherine is a registered Psychologist who holds an Honours degree (Psychology) from the University of Sydney and a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).
Katherine is an open-minded, nurturing and compassionate therapist, that respects and advocates for her clients as they embark on the journey of personal knowledge. She believes that emotional wellness comes when life is marked by meaningful relationships - with those we care about and importantly, with ourselves. She acknowledges the profound courage it takes in disclosing intimate parts of oneself, and thus aims to create a comfortable, supportive and non-judgemental therapeutic space from which to grow. Within this space, Katherine endeavours to build a fortifying relationship with her clients, one ripe for self-discovery that orients them to their inherent worth and resilience. From this place of self-acknowledgement, she seeks to collaboratively identify and rectify patterns of relating to self and others that interfere with building fulfilling experiences. From there, it’s all about empowerment, celebrating uniqueness and cultivating a life to be proud of.
Katherine has a flexible approach to therapy, drawing upon on a number of evidence-based therapies including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Schema Therapy, Compassion-focused Therapy (CFT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness. Katherine works openly and collaboratively with her clients to build healthy lifestyles that are both meaningful and fulfilling. Katherine has a special interest in working with people within the LGBTQIA+ community and works with all age groups and cultural backgrounds.
