What Others Say
"Kathy Koch is a winner. Love her. What a breath of fresh air--an intelligent, authentic presence." ~Peter, 3-2016

"I want to say thank you for being you. We sat in three of your sessions. My husband and I were very enlightened and empowered last weekend. As a result I've been approaching my 6-year-old and 2-year-old boys differently, more patience and gentleness. I look forward to implementing a better teaching style and environment to support their individual strengths." ~Maria, 6-15
