What people are saying about us

It can be so reassuring to know that you are not alone and that others are on a similar journey as you.

Our clients often experience meaningful changes in their lives both during and after participating in our therapy and treatment. We’re so appreciative that many have chosen to share their kind words and confidential testimonials.

“Not having much “traditional” therapy/counseling prior, I didn’t exactly know what to expect of working with Kathryn. I certainly expected her to listen—which she did exquisitely. Kathryn immediately put me at ease.

Kathryn’s calm voice and willingness to show me how to be a friend to myself by agreeing to be one to me, helped me find peace with past experiences as well as hope for new experiences.

Kathryn was always approachable and available, and lovingly held me accountable throughout the years we worked together. I still keep in touch with her—even three years (and counting) later.

I recommend her to all of my friends whether their issues be anxiety, addiction, abuse, depression, trauma, or anything in between. She will always be present and supportive and encouraging.”

Former Client

I’ve been writing and reading a lot and have most certainly emerged out of my depression.

I have you (Joelle) to thank for guiding me in the right direction. I also have you to thank for genuinely caring about me, which I know that you do. I wanted to thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me these past few months. You helped me more than you know.

She has a way of making a person feel seen and heard, while they are challenged to change and heal. I trust her clinical skills and judgement as a colleague who I truly respect.”

Praise for Daring Way™ & Rising Strong™ Workshops

“This workshop has helped me to be more open and honest with myself and others. It has helped me to truly understand what it means to be vulnerable.

Being vulnerable is hard, courageous, and SO worth it. This workshop has helped me to step into my own authenticity and authority, and has helped me define who I want to be in this world.

I am forever grateful to Kathryn and the Daring Way workshop.”

“If you’re looking to take a deep dive into learning about yourself while connecting with others, this is a safe place to find that community.

Kathryn does a great job of teaching Brené Brown’s research so that you can personally explore shame and vulnerability and leave with tools to become more resilient.”
