About

Kate

What was your path to becoming a provider?

Growing up I always wanted to understand and help those around me. A series of childhood medical challenges likely sparked this. Initially, I thought I would become a pediatrician. Yet, over time, I developed a strong interest in psychology and set a goal to become a clinical psychologist. As I worked towards this goal through school, I developed an awareness of the power of looking at what is right with people and not just areas of challenges. This has translated into a wonderful platform for helping clients to navigate challenges, believe in themselves and move towards their potential.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

I am passionate about helping students with learning differences because I grew up with a medical challenge which made aspects of my academic journey difficult. I was fortunate in that I had a strong support system and people in my life who believed in me despite the challenges. I learned the importance of believing in myself and finding ways to work through and beyond the challenges. For me, this made all the difference. I have helped one of my boys who has dyslexia to do the same. These things, along with my years of clinical experience have demonstrated that it is possible to work through and beyond challenge towards true potential.
