Katie Musgrove, MEd, RPsych
Katie is a Registered Psychologist and a member
of the Couples Reconnect team
of relationship-focused therapists in Calgary.
Catherine (Katie) Musgrove is a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP). She holds a Master of Education in Counselling Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Lethbridge.
Katie’s specialty is working with children and the adults who raise them. For over nine years, she has developed her expertise in supporting parents and kids within group therapy, in-home, community agencies, educational, and clinical settings. Her experience with couples derives from her work with parents and adults who are going through interpersonal challenges, including the many nuances of working with families, such as high-conflict separation, foster care, and intergenerational trauma.
Her graduate-level training mostly involved working with adults and she is trained in a variety of adult counselling modalities, including Emotion-Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
Humour, fun, and play are not just for kids.
In her work with adults, Katie also draws from a variety of specialized child counselling modalities. These include Synergetic Play Therapy, AutPlay Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, and Child-parent Interaction Therapy, also called Theraplay. She has continuously found that her play therapy training has supported not only her effective counselling work with children; it has also enhanced her creative ability and therapeutic skill in counselling adolescents and adults.
“Play, a humorous approach to life, and cultivating joy are the hallmark of well-being. Connecting with the child within can be what heals adults and reconnects couples.”
Katie is a neurodiversity and 2SLGBTQIA+ affirming practitioner. She is open-minded and empathetic. Her warmth and authenticity as a therapist create a space for clients to grow into their authentic selves.
She looks forward to meeting you and your partner and supporting your couples counselling journey towards discovering and working through your special and unique definition of joyful connection and closeness.
