With over a decade of experience in the world of movement and mindfulness, Kate focuses on getting people out of pain and living in a more embodied relationship with their present life. While attaining her Master's degree, her longstanding interest in understanding the impact of emotional stress on our physical experience led her to research fMRIs and the neurological changes that occur with chronic pain and the positive reversal of those changes through the implementation of acupuncture. She deeply understands the impact that pain has on our bodies on all levels, informing her holistic approach to orthopedic treatment.
She is currently engaged in post-graduate studies with the Sport Medicine Acupuncture Certification program, the most comprehensive orthopedic certification available for acupuncturists, and continues to explore the role of autonomic nervous system dysregulation in chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety.
Prior to becoming an acupuncturist Kate was considered a well respected teacher and mentor. She taught yoga in studio classes as well as yoga teacher trainings globally. She also taught meditation and mindfulness in many different containers, from local classes to global corporations. She continues to practice meditation daily and incorporates mindfulness tools and movement therapy in her treatments with patients.
When not in the office, Kate loves to cook meals for friends, stay active with her inspiringly adventurous husband, spend time outdoors with their daughter and two pups, and has dreams of one day making it past the Wednesday NY Times crossword without using the internet for most of the answers.
