Experience

As an actor and producer, Katie has worked extensively in theater as well as independent filmmaking. Katie was the co-founder and Artistic Director of a NYC based theater company, Ruddy Productions, that specialized in new works and in championing immersive talent. As a practitioner, Katie has studied under Reiki Master Kari Buzewski, Breathwork facilitators David Elliott and Erin Telford and is currently studying in more somatic, embodiment work. Grief work is also a large part of Katie’s specialty. She was inspired to move into this space through her own experience with deep grief and loss. Through her own process she realized how few grief informed and community spaces there are for grief. Her work currently is heavily focused on creating more community healing spaces for grief as well as destigmatizing our societies lack of education and care around grief.

Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is centered on the power of self-awareness and authenticity. I believe in the profound capacity of each individual to cultivate deep, safe spaces within themselves, freeing them from the confines of societal conditioning and expectations. Each of us possesses the innate right to discover and embrace their truest selves. In my practice, I am committed to guiding individuals on a transformative journey towards self-realization, where they can fully experience the love, freedom, and joy that they inherently deserve. Through breathwork, embodiment, reiki, and compassionate grief support, I aim to create a holistic and nurturing environment that fosters the safety and permission to help you embody your truest form.
