About

Kathleen McDonald

I have worked with children and youth in various roles since 2004. I have a Master’s of Social Work (MSW), I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) and a Play Therapy student (CAPT). I also have a background in criminology, early childhood education and youth work.

I love working with people, I love assisting people to look at life a little differently, I love people who help me look at life a little differently. I love connecting in relationship with people! I firmly believe that every person who comes into your life, comes for a reason.

I believe CONNECTION is the KEY to wellness and healing.

Some of my favorite things are reading, travelling and being with loved ones. I believe it is important to work with people through building relationships, having a foundation of trust, security and safety.
