About Katie McClain
I care deeply about adults and children and believe in unlimited possibilities for all. Hopefully, you started out in life feeling like a unique and amazing being. As kids we were connected to life's wonder. At some point in your young life, you may have felt abundant, joyful, and full of possibility. Then life happened: family, culture, experiences with siblings and other kids, mild and extreme traumas as well as everyday failures intervene. That sense of well being diminishes. Connection to wonder may fade and gradually a shift toward living life from a fearful and stuck place happens.
My mission in life is to help adults remember and get back to being present, loving, and resilient beings who are able to re-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 children. With my help, adults release the stress that has built up over time that causes feelings of defeat and exhaustion. I provide a safe, caring space where I offer somatic tools that provide relief and increased energy. I also teach clients how to be self-compassionate and resilient using tools I teach in sessions or in group classes. The combination of tools and practices I offer help adults and children to "grow up kind". Self kindness grows and the stress within leaves. The new skillset that adults learn can then be modeled for their children creating a more settled, happy and resilient home.
I offer somatic life coaching and somatic experiencing for 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. The tools I share are a mix of body-mind, 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. I offer sessions in person (in the Los Angeles area) or via Skype or Zoom video.
