Kate helped me deliver a message that has been burning on my heart for quite some time. Because of her professionalism, I am now able to reach women all over and help them in ways I never thought possible. Kate helped me stick to a structure so I could chip away at what would have otherwise seemed overwhelming. She kept right on budget and for that I am thankful. So thankful that I happily moved right into my next book project with her.”

—Kris Reece, author of Build a Beautiful Life Out of Broken Pieces

Kate, thank you for giving me the desire, courage, opportunity, and expectation to live my life in a fashion that befits my soul's desire and longing. Because of the emotional doors that you have opened I have pursued what I thought was an impossibility—showing at the 4th level in dressage this season. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that would happen. You allowed me to feel its reality.”

—Bob Crane, Mississippi

Consider Kate if you want someone to have your back. She truly helped me figure out things about myself that I didn’t even realize—like that I have trouble asking for what I want! We mostly focused on my career goals, but as soon as I was able to describe what I wanted, many parts of my life began improving as a result—including my job (I got a promotion), my relationship (we got engaged), and my environment (my fiancé and I fulfilled a long-time dream of moving to San Francisco)!”

—Nicole, San Francisco

“When I first started working with Kate, I was multitasking to distraction; trying to be awesome in ways that seemed awesome but didn’t feel that awesome; holding it all together to the point of martyrdom. Kate has wonderful insight and tools to help you meet your needs—especially those you didn’t even realize you had. I feel like I’ve gotten off the crazy train. I’m no longer doing what I think I should do, what appears to be the right path, or from a need to constantly be on track to accomplish something.”

—Carla, Austin, TX
