5 Star Testimonial Kate Walker Training
Frustrated Sad counselor

Do you feel like you're trying to grow your business all alone? 

  • Have you ever felt stuck with no one to turn to that could help you get your practice to the next level? 
  • Are you tired of losing time to the wrong strategies, systems, and structure, because you don't have anyone with the know-how to show you the right ones?
  • Have you exhausted all of the FREE resources you can find but not ready to pay a lot of money for a bootcamp or retreat that may not help?

It’s enough to make you want to scream...or cry… or just crack open the wine bottle!

Hi, I'm Kate Walker Ph.D., LPC, LMFT, founder of and Kate Walker Training LLC.

And, if you think you're struggling, you should have seen my early days!!

You see, I started my clinical practice, All About the Family, 19 years ago. I was still teaching orchestra so it was just a hobby at first...but, when I started to see some results, it turned into a side-hustle that I knew had the potential to replace my day job and bring in a full-time income. 

Then I had my third child.

And my husband got deployed to Iraq.

Then I got breast cancer.

And well know?

I was exhausted, I couldn't focus, I had tons of unfinished 'good ideas,' and I had no idea where to start and no idea where I should focus my time and energy to increase my client load or income.

Long of the short?


Creating blog posts, You Tube videos, instagram stories, courses, lead magnets, joining networks like Business Networking International, local Chambers of Commerce, hiring personal business coaches who had no idea what I really did for a living --you name it! 

I loved counseling and connecting with my clients, but doing all of the marketing without any clear direction left me exhausted and overwhelmed.

AND I made mistakes.

Kate Walker Training 5 Star Review

Don’t Let Avoidable Mistakes Cost You YEARS of Success!

I still cringe over the mistakes I made in those early days! I was desperately chasing:

"Shiny objects" (anybody still have a "Got Stress? Get Balanced!" t-shirt? Oh my gosh those things cost me so much $$$!)

Page views (I was paying someone $400 a month and she almost got me 'banned' by Google!)

Followers and likes (like I wasn't already sucked into social media!)

When I should have been focused on the marketing efforts that were bringing me clients!  

It was all because I had nowhere to turn to...

  • Get the feedback I needed
  • Hold me accountable
  • Stay focused on the strategies that actually worked  for my industry
