Let's work together.

Introducing our dedicated community of counsellors…

Kathryn Schmidt, MA, CCC (she/her)

I am an Art Therapist and Canadian Certified Counsellor. I hold a B.F.A. from Simon Fraser University (2009) and an M.A. in Art Therapy (2016) from Concordia University.

I specialize in art and play based therapy for kids and teens with ASD, ADHD, ODD, anxiety, depression, and behavioural issues . I use a client-centred approach to address therapeutic goals such as increased insight, emotional expression/regulation, better attachment between caregivers and children, management of symptoms such as stress, and increased executive functioning.

Kí Speer, MSW, RSW (pronounced "Kai", they/them)

I am here to support you and your mental health, by working with the whole you and the tools that fit best for you. In taking this holistic, person-centred approach, my intention is to help you heal, grow and be you with greater ease, health and happiness.

My practice is informed by both personal and professional experience working with the gifts and challenges of neurodivergence, survival, and being true to oneself while living in a world that doesn’t always celebrate or welcome ‘difference’. I especially love working with children, youth and families to support healthy development and self-esteem. Here, one’s unique strengths, traits, identities and values are honoured at the heart of this work and provide a springboard for growth. 

I hold a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Calgary (2013). I am a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist, Direct Neurofeedback Clinician, and have advanced training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and trauma treatment. I completed a Bachelor of Arts and Science (Hons.) in Biology and International Community Development (2006), as well as Social Work (2008), and have been supporting children, youth, adults and families in their communities and therapeutically for over 20 years in various roles. I am passionate about social justice and committed to anti-oppression work. 

In my free time, I love to hike, run, dance, adventure, learn, dream and play with my family and friends.

Teri Palmer, MSW, RSW (she/her/they/them)

With a focus on individuals (15 and up), couples and families, I work with you to resolve overwhelming emotions, anxiety, depression, strained relationships, reactivity, problem behaviours, self-harm, suicidal ideation, harmful past experiences and trauma. Empowering you to feel a greater sense of well-being and fulfillment.

With over 10 years of experience and training in self-compassion, mindfulness, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Dialectal Behaviour Therapy, I collaborate with you to find the best approach to support your goals and make lasting change.

I have a special interest in working with couples and partnerships of all orientations and constellations.  I support you and your person/people to work through problems, resolve conflict, increase sexual intimacy, improve communication, and find new ways to deepen the connection.   



Katherine Vincent, MA, CCC (Q) (she/her)

I work with children (8+ years), youth and adults in navigating anxiety, depression, trauma, and difficulties with self-esteem, relationships, and life transitions. I support my clients to feel empowered, more connected with themselves and have a greater sense of well-being.

My approach is client-centred, compassionate and creative.  I value creating a safe and inviting space where therapy is collaborative and affirming for all neurotypes and LGBTQI2SA+. My work is body-oriented and informed by mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 1), art and play therapy and is trauma informed, strengths-based and rooted in a feminist perspective. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (Qualifying) and a Dance Movement Therapist with membership with the Dance Movement Therapy Association of Canada.

Sherina Holmes, MSW RSW (She/her)

My work is primarily focused on working with children (5+ years), youth, and adults who are seeking support in moving forward from past trauma as well as those who are wanting to learn how to cope with anxiety, depression, unhealthy relationships, self-esteem issues, and overwhelming emotions such as anger.
I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), an evidenced based therapy proven to help with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Substance use issues and more. I use a variety of different approaches depending on what is the best fit for my clients including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Play Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Emotions Focused Family Therapy.
I received my Masters of Social Work from UBC in 2014 and I have spent the last 10 years working with a variety of populations in the mental health and substance use field. What is at the core of my work is first understanding and connecting to the individuals I work with and then collaborating on goals for change and growth.

Katreena Lowry, MACP, B.Ed, RCC (She/her)

My area of interests includes working with children (4+ years), youth, families, and adults (online or in person). I use a collaborative approach to best meet your goals. With children, my work is informed by my play therapy training offered by the Canadian Association for Play Therapy. This might include therapeutic games, sand tray, art, toys, role play and/or puppetry. For adults, I draw from modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS). All my work is client centered, trauma informed and strength-based.

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with BCACC.
