I have a strong intuitive ability that facilitates good communication and connection with many clients. I believe in mind-body-spirit (energy) wellness. For me, this means our physical, mental, and energetic or (non-physical) health are connected and imbalance in one area can impact the entire being. There are many paths to wellness and healing. I am honored to connect and facilitate goal attainment (personal, professional, relational, emotional, health related and more!) with each client. I am grateful for every opportunity to learn more about your experiences as I feel we are capable of unlimited potential growth, resilience and compassion. Walking with clients on their path for a short while, I have the opportunity to witness clients recognize their inner strengths, gifts, beauty, wisdom and compassion. I work with individuals and couples. Workshops related to personal growth, coping, communication, and creativity are offered online.

A favorite quote by Rumi: "Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you'd ever imagined. Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself"

Hi! Please call me Kat. While change can be done alone, it is often fragmented and limited to our self-awareness. I believe that the transformative power that comes from a safe, supportive, and empathic relationship can act as a fertilizer and accelerate growth. It is through connectedness and relationships that we can see our blind spots, discover our incongruencies, and get in contact with our more authentic sense of self. My commitment to you is to use my skills sets, expertise, and tools to help you achieve the greatest level of healing you desire and are willing to work for.

For over 20 years, I've been on the stage or in front of the camera. First as a professionally trained actress at the National Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, DC, then as a best-selling author, c-suite consultant, and international keynote speaker. My client list includes Microsoft, Inc., MSNBC, The National Press Club, TEDx, the Legal Marketing Association, the Professional Convention & Meeting Planners Association, the International Women in Business Association and others. I’ve worked with speakers at every level, selected speakers for events, sat at the board table, moderated the panels, and listened to the pitches. I’ve seen speaking from every possible angle, and I’ve experienced a lot. My “ring-side seat” on both sides of the table in the industry means I know the challenges and I know how to navigate them as you become the compelling, captivating and in-command speaker you want to be. My unique combination of professional acting, keynote speaking, and c-suite consulting give me both the insight and the skillset you need as you begin expanding your influence, magnifying your authority and maximizing your impact as a speaker and presenter.

Welcome! Taking a step towards healing and growth is a big one. I celebrate that. My approach to therapy is individualized to your needs, wants and intuition. You likely come with challenges and you also come with strengths. I want to help you identify and celebrate those so you can use them to create tools to increase the quality of your life. I advocate for radical self care. I can teach you how to integrate self care into your daily life so that it is not something you do to escape stress, rather to create a lifestyle of nourishment. Caring for yourself well enables you to give so much more to those people and things in your life that you value.
