Learning is a lifelong passion of mine. When I was a child I wanted to be three things: chef, psychologist, and massage therapist. I began cooking for my family at the age of eight and entered the professional kitchen at 15. After completing culinary school in Baltimore, MD, I continued my journey as personal chef, restaurateur, event planner, caterer and healthy lifestyle coach.
My adventurous nature manifested in a life-long love of travel and in the performance world, creating fire dancing, stilt walking and adagio balancing acts for crowds as big as 50,000.
Seeking more knowledge, I earned my Psychology degree and then worked in hospitals and research laboratories managing clinical trials. I knew it was time to shift my focus after moving to California, where I chose to explore massage therapy.
Once I began my journey into the healing arts, I knew it was what I am meant to do for the rest of my life! I took all of the massage courses the college had to offer, then continued to train in prenatal, orthopedic, Thai, and shiatsu with lymphatic drainage and craniosacral as my main focus. I have since taken more then 250 hours of lymphatic education, have been a teaching assistant for The Chikly Institute, NCBMT approved CEU provider #1000880, and board certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork #2001352.
I am drawn to these gentle-touch, clothes-on therapies because of my life -long battle with chronic pain and swelling. I have not only seen their effectiveness for my own pain management but also for many other conditions such as migraines, inflammatory diseases, Lyme disease, TMD, chronic pain, injury repair cancer and pre/post operative care. I also really enjoy working with the Equine community. I believe the lymphatic system can be made approachable to all!
I am excited to support clients’ pursuits of improved well-being and seek to help each person feel empowered in their healthcare.

Kate’s rich and varied life experiences have shaped her approach to offering spiritual care to people from many walks of life, who face many different challenges. She began asking “Why?” at a young age. This question led her to Earlham College to study world religions, and then to Princeton Theological Seminary to earn a Master’s of Divinity. During seminary, Kate deepened her exploration of cultural and historical aspects of theology, the link between human belief and behavior, and interfaith dialogue. Her deep concern is to attend to how our personal beliefs co-create the world we share, and to strengthen the ability to act compassionately toward ourselves and others.

In leisurely moments, Kate enjoys wandering the forest, climbing rocks, reading copiously, playing with words, and strumming her banjo. She is immensely grateful for her many loved ones who have nurtured and guided her own spiritual evolution. Kate knows that healing happens in community, and she would be honored to accompany you on your spiritual path.
