I believe that harnessing the power of your mind
can change the perspective of your pain.
And, I believe that managing your pain can be FUN.
Hey There –
I’m Katie. I’m committed to helping you heal and live without constant pain, stress, and trauma that’s limiting you from life, love, and experience.
That’s right, I said it. Managing your pain can be fun.
In 2017, I hit rock bottom. I had spent eight years in chronic pain, and over twenty years ignoring my own needs and the signals my body was trying to tell me. From the outside, my life looked amazing. I was jumping out of planes, traveling the world for work AND for pleasure — I had a lucrative career where I was very well respected, but I had had it with all the diagnoses piling up especially when I reached the end of what traditional medicine could do to help me.

… with a doctor’s prognosis that more surgeries were to come.
And that was just my medical file, my personal life was even a bigger mess! Anxiety was a constant companion, along with pain, stress, and anger. By the time 2016 rolled around, my body was in such a state that I was breaking out in hives every day. I tried to numb the pain with substance abuse and other unhealthy methods including a marriage doomed to fail before it began. All of this resulted in friendships dissolving, withdrawing from activities I loved, accumulating massive debt, and so much more. I had multiple surgeries with a prognosis of several more in my future.
But inside…I was a mess. Anxiety was a constant companion, along with pain, stress, and anger.
I started on a new path to healing myself. The benefits were so incredible that I knew I had to share them with others.
I knew there had to be a better way.
Traditional Medicine had failed me — and I was terrified.
In 2018 I fully embraced the desire to live a life free from pain and stress. I started on a new path to healing myself. I invested in a coach so I could move forward and free myself from constant pain and suffering. She planted a very important seed during our first call: people could heal themselves with their minds. Despite thinking her suggestions and ideas were nuts…I listened and did what she told me to do. The rewards were almost immediate. From there, she had my full attention, and I dug in with every ounce of my being.
In 2020 I found Cognomovement and I finally experienced what my coach had told me years before: I had healed myself with my mind. Cognomovement gave me the key to finally and permanently ending my pain state. The benefits were so incredible that I knew I had to share them with others. I wanted to take what I learned and help people like you and me enjoy life again.
Imagine waking up and being excited to shovel your own driveway, go on a walk with your friends, or say YES to the next social gathering.
It felt incredible. Life changing.
November 2020, the day I was told I would need neurosurgery.
March 2022, 16 months and 0 surgeries later.
I became certified as an Advanced Cognomovement Practitioner and combined that with previous coaching experience, and became a Transformational Coach. This powerful combination evokes lasting change and remarkable benefits.
When you transform your stress, and you transform your pain… you will transform your entire life.
Cognomovement is a system that activates your brain and connects you deeply to your subconscious mind through your physical body.
Transformational Coaching seeks to free you from the beliefs and perspectives that are keeping you stuck. We’ll focus on helping you become aware of your feelings and how they shape your experiences and interactions, by using the 4 Areas of Impact. Through reflection and conversation, you’ll connect deeply to yourself, and shift your way of being in order to get to your desired outcome.
Transformation is not something that will happen overnight. True transformation means shifting your identity into the persona you want for yourself, such as the persona of someone with a life free of pain or stress. It takes time to move into the identity of the person you want to be, by identifying & removing the patterns that are keeping you stuck. Then it will take a little more time being in that new identity, before the changes are on autopilot.
