I enjoy that she allows her raw reaction and emotion I’ve experienced (what I felt) inaccurate feedback from previous people that I feel like I need genuine authenticity and she gives it.

I have been greatly benefiting from these sessions with Kathee. I have been through a very rough phase and I totally appreciate the support from her as my therapist.

Kathee was highly responsive to my needs and offered several ways for me to approach the issues I was dealing with. She was empathetic and compassionate and engaged me in conversation that helped me feel comfortable and able to share my story and context. This better helped (get that "better helped" lol) Kathee to get to the heart of my concern. I finished counselling sessions with helpful ways to approach my thinking regarding my circumstance. I would highly recommend Kathee.
