I believe in meeting the person where they are currently at and helping them work toward their desired goals while reducing symptoms to lessen challenges and increase healing. Truly, life is a journey , in which an acclaimed author once wrote “ Sometimes the longest journey we make is the sixteen inches from our heads to our hearts. “ —Elena Avila.
In her spare time, Kathryn enjoys spending time with her daughters and grandchildren, hiking and traveling. Of course, she cherishes her past mountaineering adventures while once living close to the Rocky Mountains and is looking forward to new adventures here in NWA.
