About Katie

I have always been interested in helping others, and have found a consistent theme in my life around supporting others. Counselling has been foundational in my personal mental health experiences, helping to promote change and move me through struggles, while learning to cope in different ways – something I hope to do for my clients as well. As a student, I am eager to gain experience by working with a variety of clients who are looking for support in diverse areas. I look forward to offering a place for clients to share their story and feel heard.


When and why did you join Alongside You?

I started working for Alongside You in September of 2021 on the client care team, as I have been working on my Master’s degree in counselling psychology and knew this would be a good experience for me to understand the profession. My counselling internship began in September of 2022.


What would you be doing if you did not pursue the career path you have right now?

If I did not pursue counselling, I think I would love to do something with travelling – preferably just relaxing and enjoying the sites.


How do you relax when you are outside of work?

I spend time with loved ones, whether we are just visiting, enjoying music together, or watching a TV show or movie. I also enjoy spending time with my partner and our two cats at home.
