Talking it out...Thinking it through
Maybe you have issues to resolve or directions to discern.
Maybe you long for someone simply to listen--not counsel, not judge...just be present, and help you find peace.
Maybe you have an older parent that needs a friendly check-in.
Perhaps you need someone to help you talk it all out, and think it all through.
Friends and loved ones can offer support and understanding...
and there are times when that's all we want and need.
Other times, however, we need someone else to talk to...
a trained listener with an outside perspective.
I can call or have a video chat, to provide that sounding board and listening ear.
HOW I CAN HELP
Conversations with Katie is a one-on-one conversation. I will speak to you by telephone or video chat--could be for a half hour, an hour, or even just fifteen minutes.
I am experienced in...
- helping individuals facing dilemmas or life transitions;
- listening to stories from the past and helping individuals find peace and a way forward;
- being a friend to elderly, looking back on life while still seeking meaning in the present;
- helping parents struggling with family issues;
- helping adult children concerned about their aging parent;
- helping people find a way forward in the midst of grief or struggle;
- talking through topics ranging from finding one's life path, to whom to date or marry.
"Katie is an incredible listener. She offers objective, non-judgmental reflections about a host of issues I have faced throughout my life. She talks through life's complexities without being directive or prescriptive. This helps me to discern options and make my own decisions with greater conviction. Katie's consistent presence, encouragement, understanding and wisdom are a gift. " ~Renee
