Katherine has conducted in-depth research, analysis, and dissemination of reports on evidence-based practices to support individuals with mental health conditions and substance use disorders, which included literature reviews, environmental scans, qualitative interviews, analytics, and writing.
Katherine has developed and provided training and program assistance
to providers nationwide to enhance knowledge and treatment delivery for barriers to care for birthing people, perinatal loss, and policy advocacy. Katherine’s leadership in mental health includes subject matter expertise in depression, anxiety, suicide prevention, severe mental illness, co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, integration of behavioral health into primary care, mental health parity, technology-based strategies for treatment, and evidence-based practices across the spectrum of maternal mental health. Katherine speaks, trains, and consults across the United States as one of the early pioneers in perinatal loss and grief. Her profile includes keynoting conferences, facilitating workshops and all-day seminars, speaking at support groups, mentoring, one-on-one support, and training peer counselors, religious leaders, funeral directors, and others on grief and loss. She can consult with hospitals, funeral homes, support groups, religious institutions, workplaces, and others to help develop or enhance programs to give wise, compassionate care and support families in crisis when a baby or child dies. Miscarriage, stillbirth, NICU losses, sudden infant death, child loss, and general grief are her areas of expertise. She also trains professionals and supports parents experiencing fragile pregnancies and abnormal diagnoses, offering palliative care and networking assistance.
The Movement: Mom Congress™ is the policy organization for moms in the U.S. – a mother’s membership organization that is addressing the most pressing policy issues of motherhood including what we call the “motherload” (the stress that U.S. mothers carry, at higher rates than other developed countries).
The Moment: Each year passionate mothers convene to connect with influential change agents, be inspired and learn how to drive change in legislative policy on Capitol Hill.
The Motivation: Voices of lived experiences. If you’re a leader of a maternal health organization, we want you to lead with us. Every experience matters – especially those historically marginalized.
