My focus is working with individuals. I am an experienced Baby Boomer having endured multiple losses and difficult life transitions. I have tremendous empathy for those trying to maneuver life's valleys. My style is attentive, respectful, and non-judgmental. I have earned two Masters degrees and four Post-Masters, all to better help clients.
If you desire to change aspects of your life, you can start a journey in therapy and explore the answers you may already hold. Clients often have the answers, but they just need to process them. I was taught to listen 80 percent and reflect 20 percent during a session. This is because a therapy session is all about you. It is your time to explore your fears and dreams and how you hold the key to make meaningful changes. Let's be honest, though, it is not easy to open up to a stranger. But, once you start walking, a new you will be waiting to soar.

Kathy is amazing! She doesn’t get enough credit for how awesome she is. She’s helped me work through a lot of childhood trauma that I didn’t even know I had. She’s helped me better understand my emotions and how to counteract my learned behaviors. I’d recommend her to anyone that’s going through a similar that I was. I truly cannot thank her enough for everything she’s helped me through. You’re an astonishing woman Kathy, please keep helping people and remember to smile and smell the flowers when you get a chance.
