"Kate is an experienced, caring therapist.
She is an extraordinary individual whose thoughtful insights
and warm demeanor meant a great deal to all of us
at Women's Birth & Wellness Center.
Her gentle, mindful, solution-oriented counseling approach fit well for our clientele.
I would recommend her (and I have!) without hesitation."
Allison Koch, Staff Midwife at WBWC
"Kate served as my Clinical Supervisor...and helped facilitate my development
as a Clinical Social Worker through her immediate responsiveness to my questions,
providing invaluable resources, sharing her own professional experiences, and
modeling compassion and the ethics and values of clinical social work in her supervisory role.
Kate has a great sense of humor and was a pleasure to work with and learn from.
She is a talented therapist and teacher and has made a difference in the lives of
so many people - colleagues, clients, and students.
I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from Kate!"

DARING WAY™ & RISING STRONG™
GROUP MEMBER RECOMMENDATIONS
"The Daring Way™ group was life changing.
I have a renewed hope and energy as I look toward further personal growth."
"I recommend the Rising Strong™ workgroup to anyone - you cannot afford not to and the skills learned are invaluable. Kate provides a safe and comfortable space which adds to the overall experience.
I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to participate and use Rising Strong daily in my life!"
"This has been an exceptional experience, and one that I am so glad that I opted in for. Kate is a wonderful, experienced leader in doing this work and creates a safe space in which you can dig deep and grow."
"This group helped me make breakthroughs and changes that I have been trying to get to for years.
Brené Brown's work on shame and authenticity has helped me see things about myself I don't think
I ever could have on my own, and Kate Gotelli is a compassionate and committed steward of the process, which has its rough patches. I highly recommend this group to anyone who feels they are stuck on a problem, or need a jolt out of a rut. It was good hard work, and it was actually really fun at the same time."
"Taking part in Kate's Rising Strong™ group was eye-opening, a bit earth shaking, exactly what I needed to begin my journey to living my most authentic life, without sacrificing myself or my values to please others, as I had been doing to varying degrees my entire life. What do I want? What is best for me?
I've got this one life, I'm ready to start figuring that out. Thanks Kate!"
"Kate's Daring Way™ group has given me practical tools to understand where my issues came from and how to
handle ongoing difficult situations. The skills from this group are grounded rather than theoretical, which has made it easier to apply what I have learned to my everyday life."
"The work in this group has given me a context for understanding why I react the way I do in certain difficult situations, as well as tools and ideas to help me change my responses for the better."
"This workshop motivated me to take a look at the ways in which I remain with a problem instead of working through it and “Rising Strong.” With Kate’s facilitation & the way she brings the group together, this experience becomes a place for you to let go and work toward a calmer and more genuine life. I found the workbook to be extremely helpful. I highly recommend this group experience."
"I feel more calm and centered since attending the Daring Way™ group. It was really helpful to have time set aside each week for personal growth and reflection, and I enjoyed meeting other group members and connecting with them. Kate is a great facilitator too!"
"This was an invaluable experience to me, worth every dime!"
"Rising Women was an incredible experience. I would recommend it to anyone who is ready to do a dive deep and willing to be vulnerable with others about their struggles. Kate is an amazing facilitator; she created a safe space for us to listen and learn and share. It was a special group of women and time well spent getting to know each other (and to know ourselves better)."
