She has extensive experience working with women and children who have experienced physical, sexual and emotional abuse, and with LGBTQ2+ clients who are facing issues including coming out/gender identity and moving through the transgender process. Kathy is also a trained Death Doula. Kathy identifies as queer.
"'Pain is inevitable.....suffering is optional' is an old Buddhist quote which acts as a profound guide to my work with clients. Normalizing pain is necessary as to live is to experience pain,for all of us. What we do with that pain however is individual. My hope for each client in my work is to acknowledge and sit with their pain, while offering insights and tools through therapeutic intervention to allow for a change in the degree of their suffering and in their perspective towards suffering."
