Kathy is very relatable. I feel very comfortable with her and am able to discuss anything knowing I won't be judged. She is kind and compassionate and above all very human. I feel like I'm chatting to a friend, rather than a therapy session. I feel heard, and validated. Kathy is able to help me see other points of view, other sides to my stories and is a great listener. She's not only the best therapist I've talked to, but the warmest and most human.

Kathy is a godsend. I’ve had negative experiences with therapists in the past, steering me away from seeking help. Kathy makes me feel comfortable and respected. She remembers what we’ve talked about from session to session and talks me through difficult situations from my past and recent present. I feel very fortunate to have been matched with Kathy as my therapist.

I would like to share my good experience with Kathy in our therapy sessions. I feel very blessed to have the ability to talk with her, as I feel that she really understands me thanks to her sensitivity and experience. Also, she has a lot of useful tools to help me through this process I'm going through, and I feel I'm learning every session something new.

Kathy is an incredibly talented and effective therapist, and I would particularly recommend her to anyone who would like some guidance in their relationships. The sessions are non-judgemental, practical and interesting. The information Kathy sends in the week between sessions has always been really thought provoking, and she always responds to messages timeously!
