I have had a great opportunity of working with Kathy on different levels. She is a woman of unusual skills and knowledge in the sexual addiction area. Kathy has an ability for you to feel safe and understood, but at the same time goes to the root of the problem. My life is better because I have talked with her. I would recommend her highly.
Kathy is extremely intuitive about how unique individuals and their life scenarios tie into addiction and codependent patterns of behavior. She helps her clients see these patterns in ways that do not feel condemning or judgmental—rather as information that helps uncover alternatives and solutions. Kathy is both kind and firm, gentle and tough, in her sessions. She counseled both my husband and me in different structures where we were both free to share personal information. Not only did she keep sacred confidences, but she never took sides. She didn’t need to—her concern was for both of us, and for our marriage.
