Heal Mind, Body & Soul
When it comes to wellness, having a multi-dimensional perspective is crucial. Unfortunately, many wellness programs only focus on the physical body, leaving underlying issues unaddressed. In contrast, Cate takes a holistic approach by helping you heal the root causes within your mind, body, and soul. This understanding of interconnectedness creates much more efficient and effective results.
Lessons From the Jungle
Cate's dedication to learning the best ways to coach others led her on a transformative journey to Peru. There, she immersed herself in deep healing, training under indigenous Shipibo Curanderos and alternative healers while living for months in the remote Amazon jungle. During her Shaman Initiation, Cate gained extensive knowledge of the healing power of plant medicine, master plant diets, purgatives, protective baths, soplaying (energy cleansing and protection), Icaros (healing songs), and other natural remedies. This profound experience expanded her understanding of the mind-body-soul connection and strengthened her commitment to guiding others in transformative wellness.
Throughout her wellness journey, Cate discovered the game-changing power of the subconscious and superconscious minds. True healing comes from within, and often there are limiting subconscious beliefs that prevent us from living the lives we deserve. As a PSYCH-K® Facilitator, Cate uses PSYCH-K to reprogram limiting beliefs and unlock your full potential.

Journey of a Wellness Coach
THE BEGINNING — Cate's passion for wellness and optimal performance began during her formative years as an avid competitive junior and collegiate golfer. After graduating early from college with a Bachelor's Degree in Honors English, Cate moved to the UK, working in professional kitchens along the English countryside. During this time, she discovered people's nourishing relationship with food and was inspired to bring this heightened awareness back home. This experience deepened Cate's understanding of the connection between food, health, and well-being and led her to pursue education in functional nutrition.
THE BREAKDOWN — Despite her passion for wellness, Cate's health drastically declined after moving to Pebble Beach, CA. She was diagnosed with Mold Illness and other conditions, which led to a cascade of health challenges. Her body couldn't detox mold, creating a highly reactive and inflammatory internal environment. Her health declined despite her efforts, and doctors even mentioned disability options. Determined to find a solution, Cate chose to forgo conventional, holistic, and functional medicine and dig deeper. She immersed herself in research, experimentation, and training, exploring the root causes of her health issues and discovering effective, evidence-based methods for healing.
THE SUBCONSCIOUS BREAKTHROUGH — After trying countless modalities, Cate discovered a program that empowered her to reprogram her subconscious mind and reclaim her health. This new perspective forever changed how she views wellness. Cate understands that even if you eat the perfect diet, live a healthy lifestyle, and do all the "right" things, you can still struggle with your health. If your brain is stuck in limiting beliefs, you'll continue to get limited results. That's why Cate takes a comprehensive approach, working with others to address not just physical health but also mental and emotional well-being. Through sound healing and subconscious "shadow work," she helps clients re-discover their light to experience lasting change and vibrant wellness.
