hello

Hi. I'm Katie. I'm 27, Canadian. I live in Toronto with my boyfriend of eight years and our two cats.

I have a degree in psychology and am doing a post-grad to become a certified child and youth worker by Dec 2015. Currently on internship working at an LGBTQ-friendly group home for 17-19 year-old young women and trans youth who have experienced complex family trauma (e.g., sexual/physical/emotional abuse, domestic violence, neglect, etc).

I plan on doing a master's at some point. Maybe in social work or counselling, not sure. Might have some babies first :].

I've been here on Gaia since I was 15 and found LD/LI very beneficial to me then. I have stuck around to pay it forward. I'm no professional, but I do offer my counselling skills to anyone who'd like someone anonymous to talk to. Feel free to shoot me a PM any time. I'm open-minded (LGBTQ* advocate), non-judgmental, and a pretty good listener.

I like fitness. I particularly like martial arts and have practiced for over 15 years in a variety of disciplines. Currently doing muay thai about five days a week. I'm also into scuba diving and photography.

I study Japanese for fun. It would have been my minor if my university had had enough classes for it. I had planned on teaching in Japan, but things change! Currently saving up for a trip there in 2016 instead.

I'm not much of a fangirl, but I quietly obsess over Harry Potter.

You'll find me in LI/LD.
