“Katy and Southwestern Empowerment have had a profound impact on my life. On the career front, Katy helped me see and clear out what was holding me back, freeing up enormous energy to hone leadership skills and raise emotional intelligence. With these enhanced skills, Katy enabled me to more positively influence others and thereby achieve greater success and double my income. On the health front, the transformation Katy oversaw honestly seemed like magic: lifelong allergies and asthma literally have vanished. Bottom line: these results speak for themselves. I highly recommend Southwestern Empowerment.”

“Katy has shown me quick and easy ways to put myself and my health first. My favorite part of the Harmony Method® was learning that even making simple changes could vastly improve my overall health. It’s amazing how just eliminating certain foods from my diet can make me feel so much better and give me more energy. Overall, I can’t recommend the program enough. I encourage you to enroll because, even if you’re super busy like I am, it is so worth finding ten minutes a day here and there to improve your health, and Katy demonstrates fast and easy ways to do so.”
Deborah Hiser Cardiovascular Specialist, AstraZeneca
“My 6-months in a coaching relationship with Katy was truly valuable time — Katy’s natural curiosity to explore my concerns, and her genuine care to help, was always present in every conversation. What impressed me most about Katy was her keen ability, through her own curiosity, to ask those questions that helped me look within myself. This ultimately helped me be honest with myself, while all along, helped me to identify what I was struggling with in my business and in life.
Katy’s holistic view of the total “integrative” person inside and out was so appreciated. I highly recommend the SW Empowerment Group.”
Donna Voigt Western Division HR Manager, Mobile Mini Corporation
“I worked with Southwestern Empowerment for 6-months and Katy helped me uncover the feminine nature that was my rejected self. Balancing the masculine and feminine energies has helped me excel in my job so much that my well roundedness (analytical and creative side) achieved remarkable results in delivering projects. My team recently delivered a complex platform migration with seamless ease. So it has been great so far to see the yin and yang perfectly balanced. I’m looking for some new avenues of expression in 2017. So far I used to say NO, I will get into saying YES more often and see where my destiny takes me.”
Anu Anand Director of Engineering, American Express
“I was referred to the SW Empowerment Group by a friend and couldn’t be more grateful for the introduction! I had recently finished grad school and was unsure as to what direction to take, both in job and location. I felt stuck and didn’t know how to get out, which as a type A over achieving person was very frustrating. In the 4 short weeks I worked with Katy, I was able to achieve clarity in my career, let go of limiting thoughts that I didn’t know were plaguing me and lay out a clear action plan on how to get to where I wanted to be. I finally feel like I have a path and the confidence to follow it! Katy has a wealth of knowledge in many areas and has been a great asset to me both personally and professionally. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you, Katy!”
