Kimmy Aburegeba is a practicum student completing her Master of Arts in Clinical Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts majoring in psychology from Quest University Canada. She was a collegiate athlete who played basketball for four years at Quest and learned the mind’s potential for overcoming adversities. All the lessons she learned from playing basketball have become her life mantra.
Kimmy hopes to specialize in clinical counselling and help those who have experienced severe trauma, attachment issues and associated psychopathologies, as well as counselling their families and loved ones who may be indirectly impacted. Kimmy has acquired tremendous experience with non-profits and social service agencies using abbreviated models of client-centred and solution-focused approaches from a gender-based violence lens. Through her work experience in the social services sector, Kimmy quickly became aware of the demand for mental health services and found her passion for clinical counselling.
Kimmy believes that those who have suffered from trauma, no matter how severe, have the potential to heal, overcome, and achieve empowerment. She also believes that following the client’s pace is essential to fostering a safe, comfortable relationship and environment. Kimmy naturally uses a holistic, client-centred, warm manner to build a strong therapeutic relationship while utilizing evidence-based cognitive-behavioural or solution-focused techniques.
Kimmy looks forward to and is honoured to support and witness your journey to healing and empowerment.
