Become your own

best self-caregiver.
Start with your heart

You are an outstanding woman.

A doting mother, adoring wife, capable business owner, responsible daughter, excellent student, spiritual advisor, and reliable friend – you have a reputation for doing it all! You are the one others can count on when they need to turn to someone for support.


It is too easy to put your own needs on the back burner while taking care of your family, friends, and coworkers. It is harder to set boundaries and limits on your energy and resources while asking for help when you need it.


You deserve the same care you give others.

Over time, ignoring the signs of burnout can lead to worsening health problems and anxiety. A chronic illness is a devastating diagnosis. Symptoms of exhaustion and pain can cause you to feel riddled with guilt about disappointing those you love. Being sick is no way to live.

Hi, I'm Katherine!

I was 18 when I was first diagnosed with a chronic illness. Since then I’ve learned to free myself from the trap of living for the expectations of others. I now know the importance of digging deeper and living with an attitude of acceptance for whatever life throws my way.


I want to meet you where you are right now. It matters who you choose to partner with in the coaching relationship because while diet, exercise, and supplements are all helpful tools on a path to wellness, they can also be a distraction! I want to help you sort through the conflicting advice to discover what works for you.
