Kathryn is passionate about helping individuals and couples become the best versions of themselves. She believes every person and relationship is unique, and counseling should be adapted to the individual. Her goal is to help people find their own solutions by providing the tools, education, and support needed to facilitate growth. She enjoys helping people work through existential questions and difficulties, to achieve their optimal mental, physical, spiritual, and sexual state of being.
