About Kat

For the last 20 years, I have had the honor and privilege of helping individuals facilitate their physical and spiritual healing.


My Grandfather was a Cherokee Medicine Man, who told me at age 7, I had “healing hands”. It would be 30 years before I would understand what that actually meant.


In 1998, my mother was at the end of her 10 year battle with Cancer. I took a leave of absence from work as a Corporate Recruiter to be by her side until she transitioned. I spent hours massaging her and trying to bring her comfort as she neared the end of her life.  My mother told me repeatedly how good I was at massage and reminded me of what my grandfather had said. The time I spent with my mother and helping her transition, changed my life forever.


In May of 2001, I began my training as a Holistic Health Practitioner at The Healing Hands School of Holistic Health in Escondido, California. I began my private practice, HealingwithKat, in 2002.

In January 2015, I was honored to join the wonderful team at Elizabeth Hospice in Escondido, California.  After completing my training, I knew that in addition to hands-on healing, my calling was to be of service for those at the end of life.


Since the age of 13, I have been acquainted with plant medicines of all kinds. I have sat with peyote, psilocybin, ayahuasca and cannabis.


In 2016, I discovered the beautiful work being done with psilocybin and end of life anxiety and depression. I traveled to the Netherlands where it is legal to journey with psilocybin and began my training as a guide.


I have had the absolute honor and privilege to work with people at the end of their lives as well as individuals looking to find the way back home to themselves through Soul connection.


I am a psychedelic activist working to decriminalize nature and increase awareness of the many benefits of psychedelics if utilized in a safe setting with the right mindset and proper guidance.

about Kat

Soul Journeys

Soul journey is used to reconnect to parts of self that are lost, usually during traumatic times in childhood. The process involves reaching deep meditative states utilizing plant medicine, supported by carefully selected music, in a beautiful and safe space. In that state, the client journeys below the thresholds of ordinary consciousness to discover the lost parts of self, and to help to understand why they are there and what they need to feel stronger, safe, and loving.


The integration phase of the Soul Journey session includes learning how to bring what was discovered into ordinary life, and to make it part of who you are now, and become more of your ordinary state of being on the planet.


Soul journeys are usually a minimum of 5 hours and can be as long as 10 hours. 


Weekend retreats and overnight stays available.
