Visting a Psychologist Isn’t Scary!
Meet Dr. Aubrey
Dr. Kate Aubrey is a registered psychologist (#2170) in Kelowna, BC who works primarily with children and families. She also dedicates a small portion of her practice to adults. Dr. Aubrey has a background in child development and her training focused heavily on both the assessment and treatment of mental health disorders across the lifespan.
How She Can Help
Dr. Aubrey’s approach to children’s mental health is shaped by this belief: “Kids do well if they can.” Her strengths-based and interactive approach to treatment is grounded in empirically-based and scientifically rigorous tools and methods. Dr. Aubrey draws from a variety of theoretical perspectives, including cognitive-behavioural, interpersonal, and problem-focused models. She works collaboratively with families to develop an integrated approach to treatment that is tailored to their particular goals and interests.
Dr. Aubrey also conducts learning and social-emotional assessments to better understand why children struggle with academics, behaviour, or emotions.
Dr. Aubrey grew up in Toronto. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from York University, where she was President of the Undergraduate Psychology Students Association. Dr. Aubrey received her Ph.D. from Dalhousie University in Halifax. She completed her clinical residency at the Health Sciences Centre and the Child and Parent Resource Institute in London, ON. Prior to beginning graduate school, Dr. Aubrey worked at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto and the Centre for Addictions Research in Victoria, BC. In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Aubrey is active in the profession and is both a published author and public lecturer.
Arktic (“Arty”) is Dr. Aubrey’s dog. He is a Eurasier, which is a German breed of dog developed to be companions. Arty enjoys attending therapy sessions and is available upon request. Clients have found his calm and affectionate nature to be a soothing presence during their sessions.
