About Katie:

Katie’s interest and expertise lie in a progressive and integrated approach to healing and wellness that is based on invoking the inherent wisdom of the body-mind-spirit connection, on utilizing the natural world as healer and guide, and on accessing and appreciating the abundance of the universe. With nearly 30 years experience working in the wilderness, and 20+ years as a clinician working with a variety of populations, Katie has spent a great deal of her career bridging the two fields of work and spent many years as an educator, trainer, author and presenter of such work.
