Kate Wester holds a Masters of Pastoral Counseling from Loyola University Chicago, is a Certified Yoga Teacher (CYT 200) and yoga informed psychotherapist, and a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (RSMT) which she studied at the Leven Institute for expressive movement in Massachusetts. In addition, she is certified in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the Treatment of Trauma.
As an artist and a mind/body practitioner for more than 25 years, I encourage the cultivation of somatic awareness (a sense of one’s internal physical self), mindfulness and compassion to shift perspective, perceive options and enhance confidence in decision-making. Clients regain a sense of wholeness, recover their vitality, and engage more fully and purposefully in their lives. I am competent and confident in dealing with spiritual concerns, both traditional and non-traditional. I am passionate about the potential of neuroscience and interpersonal relationship to both heal trauma and harness potential. I am also passionate about the power of creativity, personal expression, and spirituality to bring a greater sense of richness and purpose to one’s life.
