Every time leaving our session I felt lighter, and I could think more clearly. Katherine is very easy to talk to and has so much knowledge. I enjoyed my time with her very much.

The best therapist I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Professional, very knowledgeable, kind, understanding, passionate, patient and very well studied. She has a lot of professional and life experience to draw from. It's hard not to feel better after simply talking to her.

Katherine is such an amazing therapist, she listens to you and lets you choose what you would like to talk about. Guiding you slowly. She makes me feel like she really understands me and knows what is going through my mind. She is very kind and funny as well which makes talking to her easier.
