Professional Background

Adam Koenig has been a Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario, Canada for the past 8 years. For the past 2 years he’s worked as a private practitioner but previously worked as a counsellor in higher education. From navigating the transition to college, to confronting death anxiety or the death of a loved one, Adam enjoys supporting individuals no matter what stage of life they are in. Regardless of the presenting challenge, Adam first focuses on the therapeutic relationship and uses an eclectic approach of theories and interventions to help support his clients. Some of the perspectives that Adam draws from in his work include Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.

With a certification in thanatology (i.e., the scientific study of death and dying), Adam recognizes how loss is an inherent and impactful part of life. We tend to only think of grief in the context of death losses, like the death of a parent, but non-death losses can be just as disruptive and impactful as death losses. Examples of non-death losses can be the loss of a job, loss of a friendship, loss of health, or even the loss of a hobby. Adam is passionate about helping his clients better understand themselves and the grief they are experiencing around both their death and non-death related loss.

Adam is also an instructor at King’s University College in London, Ontario, Canada where he has taught in the Psychology Department for the past 5 years and Thanatology Department for the past 6 years. Courses Adam has taught include Therapeutic Counselling, Pop Culture and Death, Children and Death: Theory and Interventions, Personal and Professional Issues in Thanatology, and Grief Counselling and Support.
