Meet Kate, your professional listener

Since I was a little kid, people have told me that I’m easy to talk to. I’ve noticed that just by offering my calm presence, people seem to open up to me about things they don’t feel comfortable sharing with other people. It fills me up to share a moment of connection with a stranger. I’m continually amazed at the way that no one is quite as they seem on the surface, and yet we are all connected by universal fears, doubts, joys, and dreams.

In my work life, I’ve had a lot of practice sitting with people through hardship and ambiguity. I’ve worked as a case manager, a teacher, a public health worker, a home visitor, a bra-fitter (people really open up when you’re talking about “support” in the dressing room, let me tell you), even a salmon habitat surveyor in the middle of nowhere (talk about lonely). Not much fazes me, and I can appreciate how wide a range is encompassed in the human experience.

As your professional listener, I’ve completed several courses in active listening, shame, and more as a helping professional. I am currently completing a graduate degree in psychology, which gives me a good foundation from which to appreciate the human experience. You can trust me to sit calmly with you through the storms, the hard stuff, and the happy stuff too. Think of me like a lighthouse.
