Kate Hilton
Therapist in Training



Congratulations! You’ve decided to see a therapist. That takes real courage, and it’s already a big step in the direction of the life you want.

If you are an individual or a couple struggling with a transition in your life, I’d like to help.

At many points over the course of our lives, we encounter a change in circumstances that we don’t expect, don’t want, or don’t feel prepared to meet. Transitions are an inevitable part of being human, but they can be overwhelming. Life transitions can trigger profound emotional reactions in us and leave us feeling bereaved, out-of-control, anxious, and depressed. They can also unearth past traumas and create conflict in our present-day relationships.

In short, changes in circumstances change us – and they change our relationships with others. But with the right support, they can lead us to deeper self-knowledge, a greater sense of freedom and agency, and a more profound connection with our loved ones.

I am a student at the Toronto Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling Education. I work with all kinds of individuals and couples using a variety of modalities, but my basic approach is relational. I spent two years at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto and am also certified in Narrative Therapy and trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy. To learn more about what to expect when working with me, please visit my website at www.katehiltontherapy.com.

I have had several careers, including in publishing, law, university administration, and major gift fundraising. These days, I’m a working novelist with three published books, and several in progress.

I’ve been divorced and remarried, and I’m a parent to three teenagers.
