Individual Therapy, Student Therapist
Kira takes a client-centered approach to help people confront and overcome the challenges that they are experiencing. She understands that all individuals are unique, and therefore will work collaboratively with clients to identify what is most helpful for them. Kira is currently completing her Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. She completed her Honours Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in psychology and criminology from Western University. Additionally, Kira has completed the Applied Suicide Intervention Training (ASIST).
In Kira’s previous role working at a not-for-profit Child and Youth Mental Health Agency, she has seen the wide range of concerns that people seek counselling for. Since 2020, Kira has been volunteering as a crisis responder and peer mentor with Kids Help Phone. In this role she has supported over 150 individuals in crisis who text the Kids Help Phone crisis line. Through her experiences, Kira has learnt the importance of demonstrating empathy and support to help individuals in need.
Using evidence-based practices and individually tailored treatment, Kira will work with you to better understand the problems you are facing. She recognizes that sometimes we feel stuck, and having a safe and non-judgmental space to work through our thoughts and emotions is essential to overcome existing fears, challenges, and concerns. Using a variety of modalities, she will help work towards solutions in a supportive and empathetic way to achieve the client’s identified goals and treatment outcomes.
