My name is Katie and I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m a mom to a teenager. I’m married. And I have 3 doggy children.
I’m a sharasaurus (I love to share the goodies I’ve learned). I was once a fashion designer who traveled the world. I’ve trained people in corporations and one on one for years in design software and assorted technologies.
I offer access to confidence and self acceptance to those I teach and coach.
My husband calls me “the deducer”, but actually I’m “the reducer”. I’m great at reducing concepts to their simplest essence and sharing those same concepts so that others can see things in a new way and use the ideas to improve their lives.
WHY I’M HERE
I recognized at a young age that adults tended to be miserable (at least in my childhood they were). I craved attention and happiness and I knew that joy and success were possible even though it wasn’t modeled by the adults around me. I began seeking answers, tools, people – anything to help me reach the happiness I knew was out there.
Then one day, I realized that happiness was not “out there”. I learned how to find it within. Along the way, I learned a lot of tools and practices to help me focus and find the truth for myself so I could be happy and reach my goals. One tool in particular transformed the way I looked at life. I realized instantly what a huge difference it would have made in my life had I learned the process in my adolescent years (even though it wasn’t available at the time). I’m passionate about sharing what I’ve learned in addition to the tools I’ve created with moms, teachers and the kids they are raising.
MOMS | TEACHERS
I work with moms and teachers who are seekers, want to grow and who are willing to do the work needed to find happiness and their own kind of success. Doing this work on yourself will help you, your family and/or your students thrive. The women I work with gain new clarity quickly. Many tell me that the work we do together resonates for weeks and months afterward. Suddenly you will know what steps to take to improve and move past the areas where you’re stuck. You’ll feel happier after working with me. You’ll see how to make the changes you desire. You’ll be more patient with yourself and your kids. I often work with other coaches to help them transform blocks with their kids or in their relationships.
I’ve been educating myself for years on how boys and men are different from girls/women and as a result I have a special place in my heart and a unique understanding of boys, how they tick and what they need to be successful. I help boys have more confidence, fun and success in their adolescent years and beyond. With my help, boys overcome obstacles with homework, bullying, friends, siblings and all sorts of stressful teen stuff. After working with me, boys are more comfortable in their skin. They leave with tools to help them successfully manage the the un-ending challenges of adolescence.
If you’re ready to make some changes, let’s get to work!
I’m a certified Life Coach and twice published author. I work on the faculty of The Life Coach School serving as mentor to coaches who are working on their certification process. Currently, I’m developing a program for schools called, GoodMonster™ to help schools create a culture of kindness, cooperation, self-confidence and success.
I have deep empathy and compassion for my clients. I bring fearlessness and a big dose of love. I am honest and intuitive. I encourage you to step out from behind your disempowering stories and beliefs. I’ll hold the space and believe in what’s possible for you until you can step into that place yourself. After a session with me, clients feel heard, loved and empowered to move forward.
I have more than 20 years of focused learning and life experience. I’ve been called a “Love Muffin Pitt Bull who will fight for you”. I’m gentle while helping you recognize what no longer serves you. I’m honest, kind and you will have fun when you work with me!
