  • Dr. Katie is a gem! She is an amazing healer and cares deeply for her clients well being. I bring my whole family and we have all seen significant benefit in our health from reduction in headaches, colds and anxiety. That would be enough to keep coming back, but we also love being around her contagious kids even like going so that's the real proof! Thanks Dr. Katie
