(She/Her Pronouns)

Hello and welcome to the Healing Collective! Choosing a therapist can often feel overwhelming, so I hope our site has brought you some ease in this process. 

I am a Registered Social Worker with 10 years of counselling experience with Individuals. I also have 20 years’ experience practicing and teaching meditation/mindfulness. In sessions, I use an integrated, client-centred approach that blends Somatic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Developmental Theory, and Mindfulness. My approach is warm, friendly, and grounded. My practice is deeply rooted in a collaborative and compassionate exchange between both of us, and I will regularly check-in to ensure your therapeutic needs and goals are being met and respected. 

I specialize in:

  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Attachment Issues 
  • Single Parenting
  • Chronic Health Issues
  • Workplace Stress
  • Meditation
  • PTSD/CPTSD
  • Substance Use
  • Intergenerational Trauma
  • Racial Trauma
  • Emotional Regulation 

I hold a BA in Contemplative Psychology from Naropa University and a Masters of Social Work from the University of Toronto.  My social work experience began in community outreach and support for at-risk individuals and families in Vancouver. In Toronto, the majority of my work has been providing therapy and case management. Here, I have worked with diverse children, adults, and families, in particular the Urban Indigenous community, to facilitate healing and wellness. 

I am currently working with individuals 16+ and my rate is $150 per 50 minute session with some sliding scale spots available. I offer free 20-minute phone consultations so you can get a sense if working with me is a good fit. Due to covid, I am offering sessions via secure video conferencing. I am available daytime Tuesdays through Fridays with a few evening and weekend spots available.  You can reach me at khmurakami@gmail.com, call/text 647.374.4501, or use the form below. Thanks for reading and if you feel called to work with me, I look forward to hearing from you!
