ABOUT KATRYN

I provide a space where you can explore all of the parts of who you are. Often we feel that we can't be honest with ourselves or with others about how we feel because it's not what we "should" feel. We don't share what we are experiencing because we are afraid that others will judge us. I often hear, "You're the first person I've ever said this to", followed by something that is an incredibly common experience, like a miscarriage, unmet expectations by a partner or friend, or feeling not accepted or even harmed by family members or someone who was supposed to be trustworthy.  

My goal is for you to have an opportunity to explore how these things have impacted you and how to deal with them moving forward. You deserve to feel supported by someone who can help you understand who you are within your experiences and how to make the changes that feel important to you.
