Kat is great I immediately felt a connection with her. She's honest and listens to my concerns and gives great advice.

An amazing therapist that is relatable and extremely supportive.

Katherine is literally one of the best people I have talked to. I’ve always had a problem sharing information with people in fear of being judged, but she just naturally gives off the aura of being the most nonjudgmental person. Would definitely recommend Katherine to anyone who has a hard time opening up to people.

She’s really has helped me in my healing era and I’m doing both emotionally and mentally better because of Katherine Bolton. Even though I’m always busy she’s always helped me to schedule an appointment around my daily routine.
