Core Energetics Testimonials
From Debbie J., OB Nurse:
Kate, Your workshop was moving for me. The shift I made has opened my heart and moved my soul to places I have not known before. The safety of the container you provided enabled me to feel more deeply and trust those feelings to see myself in the mirror and see the reflection clearly. For this, I am grateful. I was able to let go of thoughts and FEEL from my gut without fear. I got our of my head and really let feelings flow without judgement.
I love that I was able to work with you. It feels like going home to combine Core Energetics and you, my mentor, confidant, teacher, healer and dear friend. I am so grateful for you.
From S.M., Behavior Specialist
I have been thinking about you and the work that you do for a few days and I just want to share my thoughts with you. You are an amazing woman! You are strong, compassionate, articulate, and have such a positive energy. I really admire you and all of the work you have accomplished. I thank God everyday for bringing you into my life! You have really helped me grow and face some painful truths by providing a safe and positive environment. I really appreciate the relationship we have. I look forward to making more progress!!
From Jen H., School Counselor:
Core Energetics has helped me gain awareness of the means I've used to cope and how pain and tensions in my body are all interconnected to what is going on with me emotionally. The work I've done with Kate has made such a difference in the way I interact with others, approach stressful situations (really all situations), and get my needs met.
My husband and I recently lost our baby at 23 weeks gestation. Working with Kate has helped me to honor all that I'm experiencing, as I grieve losing our baby. She is a wonderful, validating witness to this process. In the midst of my grief, Kate supports me, seeing all the wonder and beauty, along with all my incredible sadness.
It is work, sometimes tough emotional work, but I definitely see and feel the difference in the way I live my life. I am truer to myself, and I just feel lighter and fuller at the same time.
From Sharyn M., Graphic Artist, Film maker:
I am a member of Kate's Process group. Imagine a place where you are encouraged not to hold back anything about yourself, where you are encouraged to speak your truth. In the setting of Core Energetics group work, negative judgements and thoughts become transformed. Kate knows how to create a safe setting for this kind of vulnerability. I have found that in being vulnerable, not only is it okay to be myself, but I have developed deeper connections with people. I have more integrity and I like who I am more. In group sessions, I get feedback on how I affect others which has helped me in forgiving myself and healing my past.
From Tammy L., Sales Coordinator:
Kate, Thank you for offering the "Mourning Out Loud " workshop this past weekend. It gave me the opportunity to share the pain I have been holding for too many years. This grief, pain, rage and emptiness has engulfed my life and I have been slow to open the door, fearful that the surge of emotions would pull me under and I would drown in its wake. I have struggled to compartmentalize these emotions, burying them beneath tons of earth covered with heavy rocks and finally cemented up.
Saturday I discovered that whether I acknowledge the feelings or not, they are still inside me and the twelve year old little girl is still waiting for someone to see and understand. I know now that I must be the one to hold that little girl and help her express what has been held down for so very long...I am moving to the next level of my recovery and journey. Thank you.
From S.B., communications leader:
My initial reason for going to see Kate was to fix whatever was wrong with me. I was miserable, lonely, and in pain most of the time. As I’ve been working with Kate, I have opened my mind, my heart, and my soul. I now know that nothing was “wrong” with me and my new mission in working with her is to discover the real me, the person hiding behind the masks that were created throughout my life, and to love, honor, and accept who I am today… masks and all.
Over the past year, I have experienced so much of who I am, what I enjoy and how I am creating my life. As I continue to love, honor, and accept the woman that I am today and am still becoming, I am excited to be bringing others into my life in a wonderfully supportive way.
From Kristina L., recent Core Graduate:
I don't know what all the ingredients are that make up a good teacher, but they have an extra spice which others don't. Kate's energy changed our class! She made learning "feel" interesting! She inspired us to care about the work, and gave us courage when we were exhausted. Kate is big-hearted, energetic, funny, honest, articulate and alive with the pleasure of self-discovery. You have to have guts to do Core Energetics, you have to feel love to share it. Kate has an abundance of both.
Excerpt from a letter from Jeffrey Cohen, GLBT Empowerment Network:
I would like you to lead an Addiction workshop for the GLBT community in NYC.
Why You? Your own personal journey and experience can benefit others. A compassionate, loving woman, with expertise needs to reach these souls and empower them to seek change. I know you feel very deeply, and it comes across in all you do. This is what my brothers and sisters need. They don't need the $800 hour psychiatrists...they need a loving reminder that they are deserving. They need to see your face and feel your heart to be reminded how worthy they are. Kate, empower us with your grace, so we can step out to claim our incredible lives.
