About Mycah Katz
Mycah Katz is a registered social worker with a Master of Social Work from UBC Okanagan. As one of the few trans therapists in this region, they excel at creating a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to talk. They ask questions so that clients get to where they need to be quickly. Mycah has worked in a variety of settings, including private practice, the 519 LGBT Community Centre in Toronto, and the UBCO Interprofessional Clinic.
Mycah loves working with clients of all types, including individual adults, couples, and adolescents. They are knowledgeable about LGBTQ2S+ issues such as gender identity, questions about sexual orientation and belonging, as well as attachment and polyamory. They have also worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, workplace issues, and ADHD. Mycah has been trained in nonviolent crisis intervention, suicide prevention, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, Gottman Method Couple Therapy, and collaborative couple therapy.
Mycah recently published a paper in the journal Social Work, where they give recommendations to social workers who are working with polyamorous people, and they have spoken about polyamory at many conferences. They are currently working on a paper about attachment theory and polyamory. They also gave a TEDx talk about attachment theory at UBCO.
In their free time, they like writing poetry, going for walks, cooking and eating good food, and spending time with friends and loved ones. Mycah is also the child of social workers who continues to ask their own questions about gender and identity.
