Kathy was drawn to the study and exploration of ethics early in her career. Somehow she knew that who she brought to the caring situation had the greatest impact on the therapeutic relationship. Through her continued journey of inner exploration and personal growth, her commitment and dedication is to support others on their journey. Her courses are experiential in nature, offering felt-sense learning. Her teaching offers navigational tools for dealing with the deep and often complex dynamics of both the therapeutic relationship and the teacher/student relationship. Kathy is an engaging, warm and passionate teacher, who brings a heightened level of understanding and responsibility to the topic of ethics, professional power and mindset.
Kathy has attempted over the years to offer students a unique & meaningful approach to ethics education and professional development. Her passion is to witness the moment students awake to their own potential and magnificence - inside and outside the session room. Kathy’s classes are dynamic, engaging, inspiring and life changing. She is forever grateful to have met Cedar Barstow and Bob Proctor who have widened her lenses on Power and Potential.
Kathy enjoys reading, writing, yoga, nature and solitude. She feels grateful for the simple pleasures of life.
