Kathy has been a Godsend. She listens, empathizes and challenges - a great combination for me. She always suggests solutions, is easy to talk to, and has a very calming voice that helps me open up, introspect and work with her suggestions. I have found in her the shoulder of a sister (albeit from a different mother

Kathy is very professional and yet very human. She relates to me and meets me where I am (mentally) every time. She reiterates what I’ve said and helps me see things differently, showing me light where I didn’t see any. She is warm and compassionate, very much like a best friend, someone I trust completely.

I’ve been with Kathy for almost a year now; the longest I’ve ever stayed with a therapist. She’s the type of person that right away, I knew we would connect well. I don’t even think I knew this at the time, but I needed a therapist whose fundamentals centered on self-esteem. I had this idea of therapy in my head based on some bad experiences in the past, and Kathy helped me to break down those walls and realize this isn’t a forced thing. While it can be difficult to self-examine at times, it’s a privilege to be able to have our talks every week. As a therapist, she is extremely personable, reassuring and authentic. She genuinely listens & remembers what we’ve talked about from session to session (many times more so than me). I love that our sessions never feel stuffy or too clinical. I feel very safe with everything we discuss. I’ve found that starting my day or ending my week with a session really helps to get my mindset in a good place for whatever I have going on in the days to come. I am so grateful to have found this platform and been matched with Kathy. Everyone has different needs, but I believe that everyone can benefit from refocusing on self-love and self-worth. Often times, things I’ve labeled as something different, ultimately were simply a result of not knowing or valuing myself to the full extent. And coping skills. And boundaries. In my opinion, this is Kathy’s wheelhouse.
