About Katie

Here’s a little bit about me…

I am an attorney and certified life coach, located in Vancouver, Washington. I focus on empowering people in their divorce decisions by helping them connect to what they truly want. I combine my legal knowledge and coaching background to get at the heart of my client’s needs and help them achieve clarity in how they want to proceed.

Divorce is not just about going from being married to being single. It is a major life event and a huge transition. The stress felt during divorce is akin to experiencing the death of a loved one. I became a coach to provide my clients with support, accountability, and a system to create a plan for the future. Divorce is not just about the legal process; it’s a time of transformation into a new life.

After 10 years of litigating divorces, I knew that we could do more to help people going through divorce. There are a lot of decisions to be made in divorce, and a lot of gray area. I wanted to provide a process to work through those decisions, to honor the emotions that are occurring, and to help reduce the stress caused by the divorce. I became certified as a Transformational Life Coach and use this to help clients become empowered and gain clarity on what it is they want to do.

My work focuses entirely on life coaching for women going through divorce, and divorce consulting for Washington residents. I no longer take cases or represent people in court.

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. I went to undergrad and law school at Gonzaga University (Go Zags!). I received my life coach certification from the Health Coach Institute. I love to cook, travel, and listen to podcasts while taking long walks around our town. I especially love to spend time with my son, my husband, and our golden retriever.

I look forward to meeting you!
