About Kathie and the Method
I genuinely love my work today, helping people of all ages, learn and participate in a process that allows them to find solutions to their own personal challenges, big or small. Or to support those who are leaning into their own growth and advancement. Regardless of wherever you are on your life's journey today, whatever difficulty you may be going through, from the pains of addiction, loss, the uncertainty of life's transitions or just goals you want to achieve, it's my pleasure to guide you through an inner exploration to find the answers which only you hold.
I also understand how difficult it can be to de-code the process of self-understanding from the clinical and scientific language of today. Of all the skills, education and training we embark upon in our life, the most important skill of all, that of self understanding, which holds the potential to empower us in every area of our lives, has eluded us.
Thus, the essence and purpose of my work and specifically, the unique method I use today. This method is designed for all of us. For all of those, who like myself, simply wanted to understand what was going on inside of me. How does one find themselves so far down a path, they never would have chosen, but just can't get off. How did I get here? I wanted to know the why and how of it. I wanted to understand, not just get a clinical diagnosis, which is a feat all its own, to understand and quite frankly, never made me feel anything but worse about myself. 30+ years later, those questions were finally answered, and way beyond what I ever imagined.
This unique method combines 2 whole and complete systems, both natural meaning designed by nature, not man - one very old and one very new. Which also explains why it took 30+ years of personal and professional exploration and study into healing and human behavior, to find them. They fall on the other side of our divided mental health system - the one which you do not have easy access to. It wouldn't have mattered to me where I found the answers, solutions really, treatment solutions that actually worked. I just felt compelled to keep looking for them. What I ultimately found, checked all the boxes. It presented the most compassionate and coherent understanding of human development, the causal factors for all that results in our mental and emotional human suffering today, and the natural path back to healing.
So, while I hold multiple, private industry certifications and specialized and ongoing training from the most brilliant professionals in their fields, my real classroom has been my life experience. What was born from some of life's most difficult circumstances and experiences, (and sadly, common to so many), evolved over decades of natural healing exploration and experimentation because I tested everything. I proved everything "experientially", the best form of "evidence-based" science this is - yours.
I had a lot to work with which means I can speak to and for those who have suffered deeply, from both the study of and personal experience of what the cause, conditions, symptoms and healing process, looks and feels like. I share openly about the subtilties of emotional suffering and the conditions under which they occur naturally during the early developmental process. I do so for those who suffer in silence, with shame, guilt, sadness and fears they do not understand and cannot control. They also often lie at the root of many of the "disorders", "diseases" and "conditions", of our symptom based diagnostic mental health model. Its somehow redeeming when you understand it from a human perspective and understand that we all share in the same operating systems of cause and correction.
We are complex beings for sure but we were designed brilliantly. We are perfectly imperfect, and our systems were designed for us to live exactly that way.
