Katherine has a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Vancouver, BC. She is a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) in Ontario and a Certified Yoga Therapist in the Krishnamacharya Tradition of Yoga, also known as Viniyoga.
For the last few years, she’s been slowly working on her Somatic Experiencing training to add this to her practitioner toolbox. For nearly twenty years, Katherine has worked in a variety of social services across Canada, including residential mental health treatment facilities, schools, community-based intervention programs, substance use treatment programs, community health centres, private practice, and more.
She completed her initial 200 hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in Ottawa, in 2012. She has been teaching yoga and meditation in the region ever since – in studios as well as within the local health and social services she’s connected to – alongside her work as a psychotherapist and clinical manager.
Katherine is also the Founder of Rhythms Rediscovered, a local non-profit initiative aimed at providing free trauma-informed yoga programming for people who otherwise would not have access.
Katherine is a mother, a dog-owner, a nature-lover, a writer, and is always looking for ways to deepen her own yoga practice and integrate it into her everyday life and community. She has built yoga therapy into her career because she knows its effectiveness in restoring wellness first hand.
Her goals as a therapist and teacher are to help people breathe more freely, heal, thrive, and lead wholehearted lives filled with meaning and connection.
