Working with Katharine has been one of the most eye-opening experiencesof my life.


Katharine is 100% present - like a laser-shark focus in our training. She shows up!


Katharine asks deep questions that really make me think and get to the core of the issue.


She's an intuitive wizard!


Kat is an excellent coach, instructor, and person. She has this natural ability to see from your point of view and genuinely cares about getting YOU to where YOU want to be. 


She facilitates from a place of power, but power that comes from honest work towards developing self-love in herself, and now, in others.


You know she's different the moment you meet her, and your experience with her will be completely one-of-a-kind.

Go beyond.
