Hello!! I am excited you have found me! 

I recognize that everyone is given their own journey in life; and whether you are searching for help establishing boundaries, seeking help working through anxiety or depression, trying to find the next steps in a failing relationship, or working through any number of life transitions from high school to college, college to "real" world, marriage, babies, divorce, career change or any other challenge life can throw your way, my role is to help guide, support and empower you to becoming your happiest, healthiest, most authentic self.

I currently practice virtually, however am located in Purcellville, Virginia. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years experience in trauma, crisis management, anxiety & depression, postpartum anxiety/depression, transitions both in private practice setting as well as emergency medicine. I absolutely love working with adolescents and young adults, as well as individuals and couples. 

One thing I have learned working in emergency medicine is that one size does not fit all. I utilize the clients best strengths and pull from a variety of theories and techniques to provide a fuller spectrum to include CBT,  solution based, strengths based and family based systems, tools for stress management, as well as tools to improve self worth, self respect, creative healthy positive boundaries that lead you ultimately creating a positive work life balance. 

Katharine Cunningham, Life Coach


Life never quite works out the way we plan, does it? Grief, trauma, and change are a part of the human experience but authentic healing and processing are so often not. My goal is to utilize life coaching to change the narrative that grief and trauma have in our daily lives and relationships and to enable you to embrace change in healthy ways. 

Life coaching differs a bit from therapy and counseling in these ways:

-We aren’t here for a diagnosis or treatment. We are here to take what you already know about yourself and learn how to live in that information. 
-We want to hone your intuition and your passions. We are our first and best advocates.
-We want to focus on intentionally making and achieving goals in your life. Coaching is for the “what’s next?” part of living. 

As a life coach with over 15 years of experience with grief and trauma healing and finding joy in life again, I am here to help you navigate your life experiences. Every coaching experience is unique to each client and there are no limits to what we can achieve together. 

I coach remotely but I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I have a heart for helping people realize and reach their full potential emotionally, relationally, spiritually, and physically. Life is still worth living and I am here to help you achieve authenticity, healing, and progress in your journey.
