Katerina Malat, Psy.D, C.Psych
Hi, My name is Katerina Malat, I am a clinical psychologist registered with The College of Psychologists of Ontario. I enjoy working with clients to help them gain insight into their lives, and make lasting positive changes. Having lived internationally and worked with clients from a variety of backgrounds, I bring an open perspective and pragmatic approach to my work.
I have experience treating a wide range of concerns, including: anxiety, OCD, depression, fears and phobias, low self-esteem, stress, as well as challenges with career, relationships, family dynamics (current and past, including childhood emotional neglect), and life transitions.
From my prior experience in management and business, I am also personally familiar with workplace dynamics and challenges. Combined with expertise in workplace mental health, I can help clients navigate such situations as well as engage in work they find rewarding.
My doctoral training was in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL, USA, where I gained hands-on experience in various outpatient programs, including in: clinics specializing in anxiety, mood, trauma, and eating disorders; community mental health centres; and academic settings. Since 2016, I have been working in private practice in Toronto primarily with adults and adolescents (ages 14 and older). I have also developed programming in the areas of parenting, employee engagement, and organizational effectiveness, and conducted research on transformational mentoring relationships.
My approach is tailored to you - I take into consideration your unique experiences, needs, goals, and strengths, integrating Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Systems, Psychodynamic, trauma-informed, and other practices into my work as appropriate. If you have any questions, or think you could benefit from a consultation, please feel free to contact me.
