Kara Ko, MS, RCC

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a background in emotion management, respectful and assertive communication, and mediation. I have more than 15 years of experience working with individuals, families and organizations and more than 10 years as co-host and co-producer of "It Takes a Village" parenting and family radio program. My therapeutic approach is informed by Rogerian client-centred therapy, mindfulness and exploring interactions between emotions, thoughts and behaviour. Clients find me easy to talk to, non-judgmental, and open to a variety of viewpoints.

Areas of interest and experience include:
  • Communication (workplace, family, cross-cultural, cross-generational)
  • Self-esteem and assertiveness
  • Career, personal growth, life transitions, work/life balance
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety, depression and trauma
  • Parenting, pre-natal, couples counselling
  • Special needs/learning differences (ADHD, Autism, Aspergers, giftedness, executive function)
  • Addictions and eating disorders
  • Gender identity, sexuality and sexual health
  • Grief, end of life, aging, and elder issues

I offer sessions via Skype or phone if clients are unable to meet in person.
