Since I was born into this life, I've held a deep curiosity for innerstanding the nature of who we are as humans. I've spent much of my adult years traveling, learning and observing from new experiences and cultures. Ultimately what I've discovered is the oneness within everything. I spent many years of my life feeling separate from others and from Source, especially after experiencing trauma and PTSD. I intrinsically knew I was not separate, but it didn't seem to shake how I felt. I was born with a gift of being extrasensory and for years did not experience or see it as a gift. I've since used this gift having the honor of holding space for many people as they discover their inner guide. It looks different for everyone, but what I've innerstood is that much of our society and cultures are over stimulating and not nurturing to our evolution as conscious beings.

She brings to you compassion, depth, expansion, intuitive healing energy that can only be harnessed in my perspective, by a vast range of experiences and devotion to her craft. I appreciate her way of life and engagement in expansion which benefits all in her presence. -Michele P
Katie came into my life at exactly the right time, and I’m glad I trusted my gut to schedule a session with her! She is extremely empathetic and sensitive in her work and knows how to guide you from where you are at. I have grown tremendously since working with Katie and learned so much about myself. Eternally grateful for her guidance, love, and support. -Marina
Katie carries with her a deep knowing, an intuition that comes from being a clear vessel to hold high vibrational energy for the purpose of others well-being and growth. She was able to listen intently, openly and assist me with just being who I needed to be at the time. -Margaret B
