Welcome to my webpage! My name is Kaitlyn Hillier and I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor, a Registered Psychotherapist, a Ph.D. student in General Psychology, and a woman on a mission! It is my goal to help people to find and acknowledge their true selves, accept their flaws, and become Flawsome ūüôā¬†There is no one normal, there is our normal – and that will be different for each and every one of us. To quote Morticia Addams, “normal is an illusion; what’s normal to the spider is chaos to the fly”.¬†I hope to be a guiding light in that process of self-discovery and embracing our own normals.

I love to aid in demystifying the therapeutic process, so please e-mail or call me with any questions. Therapy can assist you in many ways, and I think we all have things happen in our life that we may not be equipped to process on our own. Remember, you are not alone!

 

‚ÄúThe meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.” -Carl Jung
