Katherine Young

M.Ed, Registered Clinical Counsellor

Katherine has been in private practice for fourteen years. She has worked closely with individual mentors of the highest caliber both locally and internationally to refine her presence and skills for attending to the thousands of clients she has worked with over the years.

She has a Masters of Education in counselling psychology from UBC and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in creative writing also from UBC.

Katherine's professional experience before private practice includes working in a shelter for battered women. She also served as a mental health clinician for children, youth and families at both Vancouver Coastal Health and Cameray Family Services. She was a Family Servies Employment Assistance Program counsellor for Family Services of Greater Vancouver for several years. Currently Katherine's psychotherapy focuses solely on her private sessions, couples work and group workshops.

Katherine also works and studies as a professional actor, dances tango with her partner and travels extensively especially to India and Argentina.

She believes that therapists are also work in progress and such she was a dedicated student of Roberto Solari until his death in 2018. She currently works with teachers Richard Moss and Lisa Cairns. She has an active and rigorous meditation practice and the depth of this work profoundly influences her work with clients.

Katherine is experienced in counselling clients from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds as well as diverse gender identities and sexual orientations. Regardless of sexual orientation our sexuality is essential to who we are as human, sexual beings and a large part of how we relate with one another.
