I am a Certified IMAGO Relationship Coach based in Vancouver, BC. My work focuses on romantic relationships with an emphasis on safe conversations, conscious relationship principles, mindfulness, authenticity and boundary setting.
IMAGO is latin for “Image”. In the context of relationships, this image is a silhouette of the positive and negative characteristics of your primary caretakers. This image has a significant influence on who you are attracted to and how you show up in your relationship. My life has been significantly impacted by the profound insights of IMAGO theory, which is why I have dedicated myself to teaching as my full-time profession. I am very passionate about this perspective on relationships and am amazed by the results that myself and others have achieved from diving into this work.
All of my sessions take place online over Zoom and I am available to work with people individually or as a couple.
Kat believes that there is nothing more important in life than cultivating healthy relationships with ourselves and the people we love. Her greatest passion is helping women free themselves from old and unhelpful patterns in order to know themselves in a more authentic way, which then empowers and invites deeper connections with others.
Kat began her journey home to herself over a decade ago, when she realized that she’d hit a wall in her own life. Even though she seemed like she had it “all together” on the outside (or not!), her internal experience consisted mainly of anxiety, panic, hopelessness, and most noticeably, recurring unhealthy patterns in her relationships (aka total insanity!), all of which was the result of unintegrated trauma. She decided that it was time to prioritize her relationship with herself, and made a decision to pour everything she had into her own well-being.
The first phase of her journey involved a deep dive into massage, energy work, conscious breath work and yoga trainings, all of which she spent several years practicing and teaching. While she found these practices helpful in the short term, she realized that she had to dig deeper if she wanted to get at the root of what was keeping her stuck. Shifting into the world of therapy and coaching, Kat discovered what she needed to embody all of who she was in a new way. She realized that it was her life’s purpose to guide others on their journey, so that they too could create a life rich with meaning, fulfillment and connection.
Kat holds a bachelor’s degree from Queen’s University as well as a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University, and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. She also has a diploma in Transpersonal Counselling Psychology from Clearmind International Institute, as well as training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a body-oriented approach to working with symptoms of trauma which reside in the nervous system. She works with women online from her home in Squamish, BC, and in her spare time, she loves to mountain bike, trail run, backcountry ski, surf, travel, play music, and dance.
