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 currently doing an accelerated program to obtain my child and youth worker (CYW) diploma. I've completed two internships: one in a kindergarten class where I taught the kids social skills, and one at a group home for 16-19 year old women and trans or genderqueer youth where I gained a lot of experience in one-on-one counselling. I'll be starting my third and final internship at a hospital soon, working in the adolescent psychiatric in-patient unit. Really looking forward to it!

I'm interested in continuing my education in counselling afterwards, but am also pretty keen on starting a family, so we'll see what happens.

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. Feel free to shoot me a PM any time. I'm open-minded (LGBTQ advocate), non-judgmental, and a pretty good listener. I do have some education and experience in counselling, particularly with young people.

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.
