Ranim Kattan

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Reaching out for support and prioritizing your mental health is a monumental step, and I am honoured to accompany you on this journey. I offer empathic, personalized, client-focused care and work from a holistic framework that integrates all aspects of your life. I prioritize trauma-informed, anti-oppressive practices, and I work collaboratively to draw on my clients’ strengths and focus on their desired goals. I currently offer individual therapy and work with adults and teens (16 years and up).

Meet Ranim Kattan

I am a Lebanese-Canadian immigrant, which gives me a unique understanding of the challenges inherent to cultural integration and the immigrant experience. Therefore, I prioritize cultural humility and sensitivity, and recognize the importance of incorporating your personal values into therapeutic interventions. I use an integrative framework that draws on a number of evidence-based modalities, in order to tailor the counselling process to each client’s needs. I support clients with a variety of mental health issues, and have a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology, and a Post-graduate certificate in addictions and mental health. 

My Approach

My approach in therapy aims to not only address presenting concerns, but to facilitate a deeper exploration of the core underlying issues that often drive many of the challenges clients come across. Regardless of what struggle is showing up in your life, you can count on finding a safe, non-judgemental and validating space with me where we can work together to meet your needs.

About Emotionally-Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT)

Emotionally-Focused Individual Therapy is an attachment science-based approach to individual therapy. EFIT focuses on reshaping patterns of engagement with others and the inner working model of the self. This therapeutic modality centers core emotions and meaning-making processes to target stress response patterns that often pose a challenge to having positive interpersonal and intrapersonal dynamics. The goal of EFIT is to enable clients to shape a coherent sense of a competent self that can deal with existential life issues and become a fully engaged version of themselves.
