What I Do

I am a certified Z-Health® Neural Performance Coach. Z-Health® is a brain-based approach to your health, wellness, and fitness. Improving the brain-body connection changes the way you feel, train, and ultimately, the way you live your life. Maps of your body live in your brain. Poor mapping can lead to poor mobility, decreased range of motion, bad balance, muscle weakness, and even pain. By improving those maps with targeted movements and balance and vision drills, you unlock unimagined potential.


Pain Solutions

Recurrent, nagging injuries and chronic pain conditions deserve to be a thing of the past. What science now knows about the brain and its capability to rewire itself puts us much closer to that goal.

Behavior Change

We all have habits we’d like to change and new ones we’d like to instill. If what you’ve tried hasn’t worked so far, let’s talk about coming up with a new individualized—and accountable—plan.

Performance Coaching

Everyone is athletic in their own way, from keyboard athletes and weekend warriors to triathletes and weightlifters. Increase the quality of your vision, balance, and movement to improve performance in every area of your life.


Hear from others...
  • “By the time I started working with Katie, I’d stopped exercising due to pain from plantar fasciitis. Dog walks, usually the highlight of my day, frequently ended in tears because my feet hurt so much. The podiatrist told me to come back when I was ready for cortisone shots. Katie spent a few hours with me, showing me simple drills and stretches and making sure I was performing them correctly. The almost immediate relief was incredible, and my continued improvement has made me a believer in Z-Health® (also known as science) and Katie’s ability to assess issues correctly and treat them effectively. She understands chronic pain and has sincere sympathy and respect for people living with it. Katie brings hope and humor to people who feel defeated by their bodies. I am exercising again, strength training, hiking with my dog, even running. It’s not too much to say that she’s given me my life back, and I can’t thank her enough.”
  • "One, two, three, four, five. And just that quickly, the pain in my hips was gone. I have slept pain-free the last two nights without meds. Thank you, Z-Health! Thank you, Katie! I went on a pretty hilly mile hike today. I would never have thought to attempt that three days ago!”
  • "I started seeing Katie when I developed severe asthma in my late 30s. After seeing a specialist and trying several inhalers my asthma was barely controlled with three daily inhalers and oral steroids; I was miserable. Two years after my first appointment I’ve been inhaler-free for eight months and counting thanks to the breathing exercises and thoracic glides she had me start doing which have become part of my routine."
  • "I sought out Katie’s services when an old sports injury started causing chronic pain and numbness in my left ankle. After two appointments I had stretches, nerve glides and a few easy dietary changes that have made it possible for me sleep through the night pain free and also exercise daily again. I am currently working with Katie to get control over upper back/neck pain following extensive dental work. The brain exercises helped almost immediately and are easy and quick to do. I’m so grateful for her knowledge and ability to come up with multiple ways to help me be pain free."
  • "In October, my elderly father’s bloodwork showed that his parathyroid hormone (PTH) numbers were elevated. That’s not good for anyone, but particularly troubling for someone with kidney disease and osteoporosis; when PTH is elevated, calcium begins to leech from the bones into the blood. Imaging showed normal parathyroid glands, so the endocrinologist suggested removing three of the four healthy parathyroid glands in the hopes that would lower the PTH. Instead of undergoing surgery where the outcome was a complete unknown and the side effects risky, we worked with Katie. With her guidance, my dad increased dairy and salt in his diet and used red light therapy four minutes a day. Within six weeks, my dad’s PTH numbers were well within the normal range, without surgery. Katie is a wealth of information and a gentle guide. I’m so grateful for her help."
  • "Katie has a gift for understanding the body and truly knowing how to help it heal. After battling plantar fasciitis for years, she taught me simple stretches that have completely changed my life. I have spent hundreds of dollars on doctors, orthotics and pain medications with no success, but with what Katie taught me, the pain was essentially gone from my foot within in a matter of days. She is constantly seeking higher knowledge and ways to help everyone in chronic pain, and I cannot recommend her highly enough."
  • "I’ve been working with Katie for a few years now. I met her at the beginning of a scary health crisis and without her help, I’m not sure where I’d be. Katie is compassionate, resourceful, and so easy to work with. She’s truly the partner we all wish for in our health. With her help I’ve made dramatic progress in my health and continue to each day. I’ve gone from significant balance and mobility issues to being able to do things I never thought possible, even before my health changed. She’s helped me find hope and peace with her magic! Everyone who wants to get, be, or do better should give her a call. Katie is a gifted and wonderful healer. I’m grateful for the privilege to learn from her."
