Meet Kate

Let me introduce you to the Art of Sacred Witness: Do you long to feel accepted rather than judged?

Do you seek a more fulfilling way of life? Do you need support as you navigate a specific challenge?

The Art of Sacred Witness is rooted in compassion, integrity, and commitment to community.

These are the qualities that I carry into my work as a spiritual caregiver,

that I offer in service of your process of healing and growth.

You might be asking: What is spiritual care?

Spiritual care attends to our inner reality, the part of us that seeks connection and creates meaning. Our spirituality involves the stories we tell ourselves about who we are and what’s important to us. As spiritual beings, we are faced with challenges that can aid in our growth and transformation. We are given real opportunity to move through suffering into joy. Spiritual care honors the fact that we are conscious beings, choosing how to live. My approach to spiritual care respects your innate power to heal and express yourself.

What we believe matters, because our innermost attitudes and assumptions are evident in all that we do. Can you see this truth playing out in your own life? Do you notice any potential to make changes that will help you live more freely? Can you imagine living a life in which you are increasingly grounded in your own truth and wisdom?

My aim is to help clients explore their core values and beliefs, hone their sense of purpose, and connect with their source of inward guidance. Our sessions will provide you with a variety of supportive elements, based on your needs. Supportive elements include meditation, yoga postures, breath work, Reiki, emotional support, and ongoing dialogue about your wellbeing. The overarching goal of our time together is to provide you with consistent, nonjudgmental support and offer concrete resources that will help you become established in self-care and enjoy a more fulfilling way of life.

 

 

My skills in spiritual care have been developed through my service as a hospital and hospice chaplain, conflict mediator, and advocate with individuals and families suffering from addiction. My formal education includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion from Earlham College, and a Master’s of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. I completed my Clinical Pastoral Education at a Trauma Level 1 hospital in Tennessee, and have been gifted with the experience of serving trauma, palliative care, and hospice patients. I am a Certified Yoga Instructor (200-Hour) and a Certified Reiki Practitioner (Level II). I believe that healing happens in community, and it would be my joy to accompany you in your process of personal growth.
