Kate has a background in Parenting Education with STEP program (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting), and is a big fan of Mazlich and Faber who wrote “How to Talk to Kids so Kids Will Listen and How to Listen to Kids so Kids Will Talk.”
As an Imago therapy educator, Kate brings a wide range of life experiences as well as a significant depth of education in Imago Relationship theory to the couples she counsels. She promotes and respects each partner’s individual worldview. Her hope is that her couples celebrate the differences that each partner brings to their union. Kate facilitates a dialogue process that can be incorporated into the couple’s relationship toolbox. In trusting the process of dialogue, she finds that the couple shifts from distance to connection when they learn the “real story” as to why their partner’s behavior or reactive energy occurs.
