Hi. I'm Kato.

I’m glad you found my site.   This page tells you a little bit about my credentials, professional memberships, and education. As you’ll see on the right, I’ve been involved with therapy for about ten years, about half of which has been in private practice (since 2015). If you have questions, call, text, or email using the information at the bottom of the page.

My Experience and Credentials

I have been involved with therapy for more than a decade. I have been in private practice since 2015 and trained at the very highly reputed Toronto Institute of Relational Psychotherapy—one of the best Institutes in the field. I am also adjunct faculty at York University where I have been teaching as a Professor of Gender History and Sexuality Studies for the last 15 years.

A New Chapter

Perhaps these experiences or genetics have led us into addictions as coping mechanisms, or have resulted in other ways that we dealt with the exterior world, but these mechanisms no longer work—in fact they

are causing pain—to yourself and to others. Or maybe we are looking to get in touch with the best parts of our being.  Paying attention to all of these beliefs, thoughts, and emotions can help us change the stories that we tell ourselves. And a good therapeutic relationship can help us do that. It’s the beginning of a new chapter, a new story of our lives.
