About

"Nothing can dim the light that shines from within."

   -Maya Angelou

Hi there, I'm Lindsay Katarynych.

For the past 12 years working as a social worker, I have been providing a safe and supportive environment to individuals, couples, and families within various settings across the community (hospitals, family health teams, groups, people’s homes and virtually).

 

More recently within my practice, I have been working in the rehabilitation field where I see those affected by trauma, grief and loss, chronic pain, brain injury, and difficulties with life stressors. Through this work, I have fostered my passion that is helping others through loss. Loss can be very different for everyone—a loss of life, a role, independence, a job, our abilities, or loss of self. My goal is to help others see their already existing strengths and build upon these to develop more effective coping strategies which can help us tackle any life struggle.

I am registered, in good standing, with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and also a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers. I continue to have the great privilege of working collaboratively with many community members and businesses to provide support to those in need. 

Outside of work, you will find me enjoying the outdoors with my BIG, fluffy rescue pup named Rosie, family time and cottaging on the weekends, touring all the local markets, playing volleyball, and spoiling my sweet niece.

I look forward to working with you!
