Permission Granted

What if self-care wasn’t just another to-do you need to somehow cram into an already unforgiving schedule?

To get where you are in at this point in your life, you needed to be focused, agile, responsive, highly productive and well,… on. And you nailed it. But somehow, maybe you lost your way when it comes to your needs, you dreams.

You’re exhausted and depleted. Your work is starting to show it. And you’re afraid people are starting to notice.

You want energy. You want joy. You want to be free of symptoms. And you need to do the things you’ve always wanted to do but told yourself you didn’t have the time.

Deep down you know self-care is the fuel of your future success and an essential nutrient for living the life of your dreams.

The opportunity to work with Katie McDonald has given me strength, clarity and a deep understanding of who I am. I feel empowered when I connect in meaningful ways both personally and professionally and I will continue on my journey to always reflect, assess, evolve, always digging deeper for purpose…purpose to live a healthy and happy life nourished with all the good stuff!

Ting Barnard

I had nothing left to lose. But was still fearful of altering my life to give up anything else that I loved, valued and made me “ME.” What I never imagined was how much I would gain.

Erin Perron

For years, I have been reactive to life instead of intentional, and now that I have learned how to be intentional, and care for myself, everyone else including me is better because of it. There is such a direct correlation of self-care to my success, health, and happiness.


When I first started with Katie, I was so overwhelmed that I couldn’t even imagine there was any other way to be. I was totally depleted of energy, I felt like I had no control over my demanding work schedule, and I was in a constant battle with food due to my stress. For years, I had given myself zero time for exercise or any form of self-care. I was on the verge of depression and couldn’t see any way out other than to quit my job, but that too felt too overwhelming to tackle.

From day one with Katie, she assured me that things could and would be different in six months. I just had to trust the process we were about to begin. Over the six months, Katie helped me deconstruct each of my seemingly monumental issues into manageable choices and changes I could make each day. We started by addressing my bad habits around food, which created some clarity and space for change in other areas, and then slowly, but consistently, built from there.

This process isn’t magic–it’s work; but it’s work that is guided by a very skilled and compassionate cheer leader. Katie knows you have it in you to make positive changes and she will tell you that every step of the way.


Do you know who you’d like to be?

Your body and mind don’t come with an owner’s manual. Permission Granted empowers you to write your own. One that represents who you are, who you want to be, and who you know you’re meant to be.

This coaching program is about way more than helping you find a balance between your work and your life. It’s about finally becoming the kind of person you’ve envied. Someone who’s happy. Someone with the discipline and motivation to consistently eat right and exercise. Someone who knows what it takes to take care of yourself — and you just do it. Someone who loves getting sh*t done without coming undone.
