Kay as described by one of her clients:


Like a lot of people, I had my issues, yet I wanted to talk about them with someone I felt would not be judgemental about them and me. Kay is that person. She is a beautiful women who is open, honest, and mature. I felt comfortable enough, after just a couple sessions, to actually open up to someone else. The healing I felt, as we explored the issues and she brought her training and tools to bear on them, was exquisite. I honestly feel like a new person now!
