Become Your Own Best Self-Caregiver

“I must say, without this program, I wouldn’t have been able to give this part of my life the attention it was needing and to do it guilt free! You and this program were a gift I never saw coming.”

You don’t have to feel confused anymore.


It is possible to wake up feeling clear about the steps you need to take to overcome codependency and chronic illness. You can feel empowered to make choices that will allow you to care for your kids, to be there for your family and friends, and to enjoy activities that you love.


The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone and you can start wherever you are and with whatever you have available to you at this very moment. If you are feeling exhausted and burned out, then my Best Self-Caregiver program is for you.


Have you ever known you needed to make lifestyle changes to improve your health, but choosing where to start felt overwhelming? Or have you been disappointed when your conventional medical doctor couldn’t explain your symptoms? Or have you tried to make time for yourself, but everyone else’s needs seem to take priority?


You can break the cycle of stress and self-neglect.


I know what it’s like to feel exhausted and unmotivated when confronted with the daily symptoms of chronic illness. You feel alone and misunderstood by the people you hoped would be there to support you. You wonder if there’s any use in trying to make changes because at this point, it feels like you are doomed to poor health forever.


Or maybe you’ve made attempts to change your diet, reduce stress, and exercise more, but nothing seems to stick for very long. Either you aren’t getting the results you want or don’t have enough support, so you return to the way you’ve always done things – and continue to feel worse.


There is so much conflicting information available on the internet and social media these days that it can be hard to know which path is right for YOU! I’ve designed my Best Self-Caregiver program to get to the heart of your unique needs so that you can take better care of yourself.

My coaching is based on over a decade of personal and professional experience.

If you are ready and eager to start doing things differently and to finally feel a sense of clear direction in your life, but you’re having thoughts like:

  • “I don’t think it’s the right time now with all my other responsibilities”
  • “I’m not sure I can justify spending money on a luxury like my health”
  • “I’ve already tried to make changes and it hasn’t made a difference”

then I want to stop you right there!


Your personal beliefs about your health, your relationships, and your circumstances can subconsciously help or hinder your efforts without you even realizing it.


There will never be a perfect time to learn to become your own best self-caregiver. There will always be other priorities trying to scream louder for your attention. If you’ve been busy caregiving for everyone else, now is the time to create a sustainable lifestyle to heal the underlying triggers of your own codependency and chronic illness.


Here’s one client’s story about learning to make her health a priority in any circumstance:

“As someone who went through Katherine’s program twice now (once, two years ago as a trial run when I was not invested and now as a REAL try with her new course where I AM invested), I can tell you that until I put my money where my mouth was and paid attention to investing in myself and my self-care, I got nowhere.

I am a professional, and a very busy person, and I thought I knew it all and had no time for me. Katherine’s course helped me see the things I was missing and taught me to be mindful and thoughtful with myself and with my needs (without feeling selfish).

I was in the middle of the worst flare-up of my life when I decided to give her course a real go this year and it has made a TREMENDOUS difference in how I think and act and, ultimately, in how I feel!

I don’t claim to know how it can help everyone, but for this busy professional, it helped me lose weight, feel better and less overwhelmed, and have a support system. I am very sincere when I tell you that her course is not only underpriced, but extremely worth the small investment with all the tools and time she gives you!”


Together we will address three core foundations:


Grieving loss of health

Letting go of guilt

Releasing trauma


Setting a new vision

Realigning priorities

Creating a plan


Mindfulness • Rest

Digestion • Detoxification

Boundaries • Movement

Learn the answers to questions such as:


  • What causes chronic illness in the first place?
  • Why am I so tired all the time?
  • What should I eat to improve my health?
  • How can I feel motivated to exercise?
  • How can I help my friends and family understand what I’m going through now?
  • What kind of job can I expect to have with my symptoms?


Access concrete self-caregiving plans that you can use to start feeling better right away.


  • These are the same strategies I use to manage my own health and in turn teach my clients.
  • When you build a set of skills to manage and cope, it means that you will have the best tools available to you and you will know how and when to use them most effectively.
  • Even for those who do not achieve complete remission, they recognize how their day-to-day quality of life improves by taking better care of themselves.

Here is what's possible for you:

“I’ve just finished Nurse Coach Katherine’s program and it’s affected my life so profoundly that I can’t begin to tell you everything.

Her course teaches you the fundamentals of functional medicine and, more specifically, how you can implement it in your daily life to improve your quality of life, with the goal of regaining the BALANCE you’ve lost that led you to the chronic illness in the first place.

So, I can’t say that her course is spiritual in nature, but that’s where MY balance had been lost. The program reconnected me with who I am at my core, who I lost touch with under the busy schedule of MOTHERHOOD.

It helped me connect how my emotional, mental, and SPIRITUAL health profoundly affects my physical health. I had been so caught up in improving and optimizing my physical health (with the goal of EVENTUALLY  being able to regain what I had lost) that I was neglecting spiritual heart.

In the pursuit of optimized health, I lost my peace – my peace with myself, my peace with my Creator.

I’ve known Katherine for over 10 years now and I’ve always valued knowing her. Now though, I think I can safely say I will be grateful to her impact on my life forever.”


I am here and ready to help you experience the transformation my other clients enjoyed.


I am passionate about my coaching programs because I truly believe it is possible to avoid so much heartache when you have a compassionate partner to guide you each step of the way (rather than trying to piece it all together yourself).


I want to reassure you that I am wholeheartedly committed to helping you heal at the pace that is right for you and I respect that only YOU know what is best for your health.

The two questions I am asked most often are:

 How much of a time commitment is required?

  • I offer many different coaching structures so that you can mold my process to fit your own lifestyle.
  •  This is a mutual investment of time, energy, and resources.
  • I hold myself accountable to you as a client and I ask the same level of accountability from you in return (while also understanding that life happens).

How much money does it cost?

  • I recognize that your individual circumstances are unique, which is I invite you to be open about your financial situation as we contemplate working together.
  • For those who are living on a limited budget or receiving a fixed income (such as Social Security Disability Insurance), I offer sliding scale fees and payment plans.

Choose the option that fits your lifestyle and budget.

Coaching Programs

Here are more testimonials from past clients:

“Now I feel more focused and driven to take the time to implement practical steps to improve my health. Katherine really listens! I have worked with a variety of practitioners over the years and Katherine is one of the few that I feel truly takes the time to really understand my unique challenges. She then helps to build on my strengths so that I can see consistent improvement.

“She breaks things down so as to be achievable and gives the courage to continue moving forward. She creates a safe place to dig deep to find the root causes of illness and treat accordingly rather than giving band-aid fixes. As a result, I am feeling more consistent peace, strength, and courage that I am in control of my health and well-being.”


“I was struggling with very high anxiety and uncontrollable negative thoughts and severe pain due to my fibromyalgia. I had a real fear of expressing myself and feeling vulnerable.

“The best results I received while working with Katherine were learning to be in the moment, being mindful of why I’m feeling the way I do, and not letting my anxiety dictate or take over my emotions. Also, to just breathe!

“Katherine is the reason this program works. Her demeanor is calming, never judgmental, and she is always available. She validates your feelings, which makes you feel like you’re not crazy or alone.”


“I felt completely overwhelmed and stressed about what to do and what not to do. There is so much information out there and it’s hard to know what information to trust, but because Katherine is a nurse and a chronic illness patient, I feel like the information in this course is really sound. It helped me figure out what to focus on and how to implement changes that helped me in the best way for my lifestyle.

“I benefited from a community of women to connect with while working through this course and the solid reminder that I am not alone in this world of chronic illness. When I implement the strategies from this course I feel significantly less overwhelmed and that alone is a huge relief for me, as my stress contributes to my health greatly. I also wasn’t very knowledgeable about adrenal fatigue and leaky gut – both of which sounded like something I might be dealing with, but were overwhelming to try and sort through on my own.

“I think the biggest ah-ha moment for me during the course was just a reinforcement of how important it is that I take care of myself as much as I can and to take it a little bit at a time. Breaking everything down and scheduling in times for those tasks and self-care were a great help.”


“I value her encouragement and unique points of view, as well as her timely response whenever I reached out to her with questions or when I needed extra support. She and others are very engaged and present in the Facebook community.

“My personal setbacks have always been met with Katherine’s compassion, patience, and gentle questions that always gave me a new perspective and encouragement to keep working toward my own progress and at my own pace.

“This program, if you consistently do the work, will help give you more freedom, emotionally and relationally. It’s a great investment in yourself. I’ve learned so much from being a part of this program and community.”


“Sometimes we put ourselves on the back burner in order to take care of our family. But it’s also important to remember to take care of ourselves too. Especially when it comes to our health. I learned that the hard way. Earlier this year, I decided to put myself first and joined the Nurse Yourself Back to Health Program and it was the best decision I’ve made!

“When I didn’t know where to start, Katherine’s program gave me the direction and guidance that I needed. It taught me how to budget my energy so I didn’t crash every single day. It taught me to find the right support, questions to ask at my doctors office, organizational skills, how to be more grateful despite the challenges I was facing with my health. I learned so many practical things. It gave me the tools to figure out the root causes, balance rest, reduce toxicity and how to set boundaries. It also included a lot of one on one coaching calls and group support calls. But most of all, it gave me the confidence and hope that I would finally be on my way to getting better! Through her program, I was able to find what worked best for me.

“If you are struggling with your health and you don’t know where to start, then I highly recommend her program! It is worth every penny! She specifically helps those with any ongoing chronic illness or autoimmune disease. Reach out to her for a free discovery call to see if her program is the right fit for you. She’s also the warmest, kindest person I know.”
