Kathy's style is not for everyone but if you are like me and want the TRUTH, you will really like her. I went through several different therapists who sat across the room from me and nodded. After tens of thousands of dollars it occurred to me that I was not benefiting at all from that type of therapy. Please keep in mind, you may have to look for a therapist that suits your style the best. You may want a therapist who just listens and doesn't offer assistance of guidance. I didn't want that. Kathy taught me about the teachings of Pia Mellody and her 'Family of Origin' model. I think she's great. She changed my life.
