KATIE DAVIDMAN COUNSELLING SERVICES
I am a Registered Social Worker with over 15 years experience in mental health and addictions.
I can help you to explore, understand, accept, manage or change difficult feelings and behaviours.
I can help you to feel your best version of yourself, and to bring your best self forward into your relationships and life pursuits.
In a typical series of sessions, with your permission, I can help you to:
feel curious about present-day symptoms,
understand, manage, or change symptoms,
soften the present-day impact of past experiences,
resolve unexpressed feelings,
set goals to break stuck patterns,
experience yourself at your best.
My practice is now mostly virtual, with some in-person spots available. I am available only for weekday appointments between 9:45am-3pm.
My Fee is $130, or, ask about my sliding scale.
Payments can be made by cash, cheque, or e-transfer.
Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance to avoid fees.

MODALITIES & EXPERIENCE
My primary current influence is a modality called Internal Family Systems (IFS). I am Level 2 trained with the IFS Institute, and I participate in various IFS consultation groups and continuous learning programs.
I have also trained in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) (Level 1 with Les Greenberg) and Emotion Focused Therapy for Individuals (EFIT) (Level 1 & 2 online with Sue Johnson and colleagues).
Prior to my training in the IFS modality, I worked at the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH). There, I used various modalities including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Mindfulness-based approaches.
In addition to working in my private practice, I occasionally co-lead psycho-educational groups with my local Family Health Team on topics including depression, anxiety, trauma, and alcohol use.
I am always deepening my skills and competence in being trauma-informed and anti-oppressive.
My lived experience is as a white, straight, able-bodied, CIS-gendered woman. I am a married mother.
My practice approach is secular and evidence-based.
