“I chose to work with Kate because she came highly recommended for my needs related to hormones and women’s health. From my first appointment Kate made me feel right at home. Everything about the session felt tailored just for me from the lifestyle recommendations to the acupuncture during the session and the herbs she blended for me to take at home. Kate is knowledgable, sensitive, kind, and gentle. I’m so glad she is part of my journey to better health.” – F.D. Boulder, CO
