Trauma Backgrounds

Kate is an original member of Milkweed Connections and has been working as a peer supporter for over a decade. As a lifelong lover of movement and creativity, Kate is interested in assisting others to explore their own holistic paths to health and healing. She is currently taking yoga teacher training and is studying art as a therapeutic practice. She especially enjoys working with youth and young adults, supporting them to find their place in the world, to create their path, and to find their sources of joy and meaning in life.

Kate comes to this work having struggled with her own experiences of persistent anxiety and feelings of hopelessness and unworthiness. She has found health, healing, and happiness through discovering peer support, practicing holistic health, and finding community. She believes that we all have a place in this world and that it just sometimes takes a little work to find it.

In her free time, Kate has two ridiculous cats who keep her endlessly entertained. She has many interests and hobbies and enjoys spending time in nature, cooking, being creative, taking care of her garden and houseplants, practicing yoga, running/walking/hiking, and spending time with friends and family.
