Josipa Katinic
Registered Clinical Counsellor

I serve women aged 20-70 who have struggles in the following areas and are willing and want to see and feel an improvement in their lives through a combination of therapeutic methods that actually make a difference:

  • Going from single to a relationship
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Disordered eating
  • Self-Harm / Non-Suicidal Self-Injury (cutting, burning, hurting oneself on purpose)
  • Personality Disorders
  • Overcoming traumatic childhoods
  • Treatment-resistant depression
  • Transitioning to Adulthood
  • Transitioning to Retirement
  • Recovering from Childhood Trauma
  • Boundary Setting
  • Attachment injury

Additionally, I help couples:

  • On the brink of divorce
  • Ambivalent (one is more interested in the relationship than the other)
  • After an affair or betrayal
  • Who want to optimize their relationship

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (your extended health may provide benefits for services) holding a Masters of Counselling Psychology from City University and Bachelor of Arts from the University of British Columbia. Additional professional certifications I hold include:

  • Internal Family Systems/IFS
  • Trauma Informed Stabilization Treatment (with Janina Fisher)
  • Somatic Experience – Advanced practitioner
  • Eating Psychology Coach
  • Relational Life Therapy – Level 1
  • Intuitive Eating
  • Gottman Therapy – Levels 1, 2 & 3
  • Emotional Freedom Technique and Matrix Reimprinting – Advanced Practitioner
  • Attachment, Neurodevelopment and Psychopathology

I weave together a unique style of therapy which addresses past trauma, current relationships, and body-focused strategies under an attachment diagnostic lens to help you get to your goals quickly. I believes processing time, insight, pattern reorganizing, and safety are important elements in a therapeutic relationship.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading and spending time with my family.
