About Katie McClain
Life happens: family, culture, experiences with siblings and others, accumulated stress, mild and extreme traumas, everyday failures and difficulties - all of these can contribute to a dimished sense of well being. Your connection to wonder may have faded. Perhaps you've experienced a sudden or gradual a shift that's left you living a life that feels fearful and stuck.
My mission in life is to help adults remember and get back to being present, loving, and resilient beings who are able to connect to the beauty and wonder of life. I support adults in returning to that place of possibility, enabling them to model resilience, love, and compassion in their interactions with their children. With my help, adults release the stress that has built up over time that causes feelings of defeat or exhaustion. I provide a safe, caring space where I offer somatic tools that provide relief and as a result, energy for life is increased. I also teach clients how to be self-compassionate and resilient using tools I teach in individual sessions or in group classes. Self kindness grows and the stress felt within leaves. The new skillset that adults learn can then be modeled for their children creating a more settled and happy home.
I offer a combination of Somatic Experiencing and Somatic Life Coaching to parents and their children ages 9 and up. I've written 2 books (offered in English & Spanish) and an app that offers mindfulness and positive thinking (similar to CBT) based tools using fun metaphors and activities that are enjoyable for both children and adults. I offer body-based skills, mindfulness, self-compassion, and cognitive practices to help adults and kids (re)connect to themselves with love and compassion. I have 25+ years of experience supporting individuals in building confidence, feeling better and doing better in their lives. Sessions are in person (in the Los Angeles area) or via Zoom or Skype online video.
