Introducing Kate & Spiritual Care

Spirituality is a vital aspect of human health. My intention is to help clients connect with the spiritual aspect of their whole-person wellbeing, so they can gain relief from the less visible forms of suffering, and experience more joy and fulfillment in their lives by nurturing their process of personal growth.

 

Spirituality attends to our inner reality: how we define our purpose, create meaning, forge connection, and express our unique qualities. Our spirituality involves the stories we tell ourselves about who we are, what’s important to us, and our role in the world. As spiritual beings, we are faced with challenges that can aid in our growth and transformation. We are given real opportunity to move through pain and suffering into joy and hope.

Spiritual care honors the fact that we are conscious beings, choosing how to live. Since spirituality is a personal and diverse phenomenon, spiritual care can look many different ways. I offer clients a fully embodied framework for spiritual care that can help them cultivate their awareness, self-compassion, and creative capacity. My goal is to help clients move through any stuck patterns of belief or behavior and reconnect with their sense of agency, i.e. their power to make choices about their lives and wellbeing. My approach to spiritual care therefore respects your innate wisdom and power to heal, so that you can more fully express your unique gifts in a world that needs them.

What happens in a spiritual care session with Kate? I offer potential clients a free 20-minute consultation to make sure that my approach is a good fit for your needs. Our initial conversation lays the groundwork for an ongoing dialogue that helps define your goals for personal growth. Each session focuses on your top priority for growth, and engages in the modalities that can best serve your goals. Supportive elements engaged in each session can include spiritual dialogue, emotional support, guided meditation, trauma-sensitive yoga, breath work, and Reiki energy work. Sessions may also include exploring avenues for self-expression, such as journaling or simple art activities. I have extensive experience accompanying individuals facing serious illness, grief and loss, trauma recovery, addiction recovery, vocational discernment, and various forms of change and transition. My commitment is to provide you with an accepting and nurturing environment where you can address the root causes of symptoms like despair, build your capacity for trust and self-integration, and learn concrete skills for your self-care. I work with clients from a variety of spiritual and religious backgrounds and beliefs.

Kate's Story

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. Her curiosity about the world’s deeper realities led her to Earlham College to study world religions, then to Princeton Theological Seminary to earn her Master’s of Divinity. During her time in seminary, she dove further into the cultural and historical aspects of religion and theology, as well as the process of interfaith dialogue.

Kate’s deep concern is to honor how our personal beliefs inform our actions, ultimately co-creating the world we share. She is passionate about helping others move through suffering into healing and joy, by examining patterns that impede growth and building self-trust and compassion. She has much to share from walking her own spiritual path, as we’re all invited to do.

Her commitment to the care of land and people has guided Kate’s path as a spiritual caregiver. She has served as a hospital and hospice chaplain since 2017, earned her Rule 31 Mediation Certification in 2012, and has served as an advocate with individuals and families suffering from addiction for more than a decade. She’s furthered her study of spiritual philosophy as a 500-Hour Certified Yoga Teacher, earning her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Certification in 2020 and becoming a certified Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga Facilitator (TCTSY-F) in 2024. She earned her Reiki II certification in 2021, and culminated her Reiki Mastership training and certification in 2024.

Through her academic studies and life experiences, Kate has witnessed how spirituality, human wellbeing, and healthy ecologies are intimately linked. She has volunteered on farms and gardens around the world, earned a Permaculture Design Certificate in 2014, and served as a long-term board member then as board president for an East Tennessee Farmer’s Market.

In leisurely moments, Kate enjoys wandering forests, 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. Her great hope is that you can learn to practice care and compassion for yourself, so that you can live joyfully and express your unique gifts in a world that needs them.
