NameAndrea Klepatz

How I Work

In therapy I am warm, genuine and non-judgemental. I want you to feel safe to share your worries with me. I believe each one of us are experts in our own lives. I will work with you to find an approach that works best for you and your situation.

My Story

I have worked with adults, children and families in a professional capacity for the last 23 years in the field of Mental Health, Crisis Counselling, Child Welfare and Education. I am experienced in supporting children who have behaviour challenges, exceptionalities and trauma. I have worked with families/caregivers in understanding their child’s challenges and managing their own wellness as care providers. My strength is positive engagement to find hidden potential and resilience that occupy each individual and relationship.

Outside the Office

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time outside, hiking, canoeing, and camping with my family.
