A Bit About My Story
My name is Katharine. I was named to honor my grandmother and therein lies a story. I'm number seven of ten siblings raised by a single mom. Early trauma and loss set in motion a strong sense of feeling different and not fitting in. Meditation, believing in my intuition, embracing my fears and loss, accepting that different equals unique, and self care were all a part of re-creating my story.
I love stories. As a mother, a writer, and a career professional there's always been one constant - listening to others. To deeply listen and help you see that your unique expression is living in plain sight in your own story would be my joy. Let me accompany you as you connect to your inner voice, your inner guidance system. What happens next is a new life narrative - you get to create it. I get to be there to hear it.
Credentials and Experiences
There are a few key experiences that have brought me to this point:
A Masters degree from Fordham University in Religion and Religious Education (MRE)
Mother of four wonderful beings
Published author of feature articles in regional publications
20+ year career in senior management for non-profit, cultural arts organizations
Mentor in support of persons on a budding career path
Traveled, climbed mountains, and sat za-zen in a temple in Kyoto, Japan
I have trained as a Martha Beck Wayfinder Life Coach.
I am a DreamWorker in training at The Haden Institute.
Though this is a list of things I've been successful doing, they don't define me. I am an explorer, a seeker, someone who loves using my intuition as a deep listener, coach, dreamworker or story doula. Working with me you'll find a supportive guide as you bring clarity to the truer version of who you are. It's a spiritual journey to your most sacred place, where your truest voice awaits.
The initial complimentary session will help set the course for our time together. We'll discuss where you are and where you're hoping to go. I'll give some background on how I conduct the sessions. Then off we go.
The whole experience is very much like a soul's homecoming. I believe your inner ground is sacred. It's unique and special to you. I love listening to stories and I'm very interested in hearing yours. What I do best is deep listen as you connect to your thoughts and dreams. Along the way we'll discover what's holding you back and work on dissolving those unhelpful beliefs. It's an honor to accompany you there.
Your body is a critical compass giving messages and directions about next steps. Equally important are your dreams - both night time and waking dreams. We'll explore each as we talk about your story.
It's all about you as we see the patterns and symbols that emerge. Are you interested in dreaming of and creating the possibilities in your life that may have taken a back seat? If so, please contact me and we'll get started. I can connect with you by phone or online.
