ABOUT KATIE POINIER
katie is committed to facilitating balance and harmony in every way she can, especially when it comes to our relationships with ourselves and with the more-than-human world.
her deep love for the natural world and the unseen realms has been a source of joy and balance throughout her life. it is her great honor and joy to share it with you.
katie began her healing journey after many years of supporting people through unimaginable circumstances as a registered nurse. she realized she needed some healing of her own. unsure of where life was taking her at that time, she sought spiritual and soul-based healing in 2009. after several years of living into her own deep transformation, she began studying the shamanic healing arts in order to support the wholeness, balance, and sovereignty of others.
when she is not working with clients in her Seattle-based healing space, you can find her spending time with her husband or following her sweet dog down any woodsy trail they can find. you might also find her facilitating rites of passage, dancing her joy, or listening quietly to the soft thrum of the heart of the earth.
katie invites and honors your deep well of wisdom, gained from all the living you've done. she welcomes everything that supports you living in balance and harmony, within and without. she is humbled and delighted to walk with you, wherever you are in the living story of your life.
