Cate Ritter

Wellness Coach, PSYCH-K® Facilitator, HeartMath® Coach, Functional Nutrition Practitioner, & Health Writer.

For over a decade, Cate's been coaching, training, and experiencing many different forms of healing. She's passionate about helping others find the most effective ways to improve their health and live happier, more fulfilling lives.

Journey of a Wellness Coach

The Beginning

Cate grew up an avid competitive junior golfer, then a collegiate golfer. She always had an interest in wellness for optimal daily performance. Cate graduated from college early with a Bachelor’s Degree in Honors English. After college she moved to the UK where she worked in professional kitchens along the English countryside. This is where her beloved connection to food began. After discovering the nourishing relationship people had with food, Cate hoped to bring these values home. She wanted to help others deepen their connection with local food, and prepare it in a way that’s delicious, doable and sustainable. She continued her education, training and coaching in Arizona and California.

The Breakdown

However, Cate’s health took a tremendous hit upon moving to Pebble Beach, CA. She discovered she had a “genetic defect” to detox mold. This meant that her body was not physically able to detox mold. As a result, this allowed mold to grow internally and produce mycotoxins. Cate was “diagnosed” with Mold Illness and a cascade of different conditions. Her health declined despite all efforts. When doctors mentioned disability as an option, she took drastic measures. She decided to forgo conventional, holistic and even functional medicine and dig deeper.

The Subconscious Breakthrough

After experimenting with countless healing modalities, she found a program that empowered her to rewire her brain. Finally, she was able to reclaim her health. This new perspective on healing forever changed how Cate views wellness. You can eat the perfect diet, live a healthy lifestyle and do all the “right” things to take care of yourself, but still struggle with your health. If your brain is stuck playing an old program, then things aren’t going to change. Cate has used her healing journey to fuel her mission to help others.

Heal Mind, Body & Soul

To fully heal and achieve the results you want, it’s best to include different perspectives. When you heal the body, mind, and soul you get more effective and sustainable results. Unfortunately, most wellness programs focus on one perspective — the physical body. This includes treating symptoms and diseases but doesn't address why these issues were created. As a Wellness Coach with many healing methods, Cate helps you get to the root to get results. She helps YOU restore health within your body AND heal root causes within your mind and spirit.

Lessons From the Jungle

Dedicated to learning the best ways to help others, Cate ventured to Peru. Immersing herself in deep healing, she experienced a complete transformation in her health and life. For a few months, she lived in the remote Amazon jungle where she trained under indigenous Shipibo Curanderos and alternative healers. During her Shaman Initiation, she gained extensive knowledge on the healing power of plant medicine, plant dietas, purgatives, protective baths, soplaying (energy cleansing and protection), Icaros (healing songs) and other healing remedies.

Subconscious Healing

Throughout Cate’s journey, the “wellness game-changer” she discovered was the power of the mind. The subconscious and superconscious mind are essential for deep and sustainable healing on all levels. True healing comes from within and deep within us are often limiting subconscious beliefs. Consequently, these beliefs prevent us from living the lives we desire and deserve. As a PSYCH-K Facilitator, Cate has found PSYCH-K to be the most effective way to reprogram subconscious beliefs. As a result, this can improve your health and benefit every area of your life.
