Kathy believes that communication is a human necessity – a fundamental part of life. She personally witnessed the tragedy of language loss after her grandparent’s stroke and wanted to learn how this loss could be turned around. Since then, she has found the broad scope of her field fascinating. Kathy’s clinical teaching includes supervising graduate students from UBC and other universities.
Kathy’s areas of practice are adult and children’s therapy in acquired brain injury rehabilitation, including providing aphasia group treatment for a portion of the year. She has a special talent and sensitivity for working with teenagers with brain injury. Kathy also provides medical-legal assessments and, along with Karen Salamon, has developed and runs the social communication group program for adults with brain injuries.
Kathy is available to see clients in Vancouver, North Vancouver, New Westminster, Burnaby, North Surrey, and North Delta.
