Inspirational Speaker:

  • understanding relationships

Here are a few of Kathie’s signature presentations:


It’s so easy for you, as a caregiver, to become burdened, overwhelmed and stressed to the point of ruining your own health. But you don’t have to go down that road. And you don’t have to just get by either. You can go beyond surviving ... and start thriving ... so you come out the other side better for the experience. In this workshop, Kathie shows you how to make this shift by bringing a fresh perspective that’ll change everything you believe about caregiving.

Your caregiver journey can be an opportunity for tremendous personal growth and healing. Let Kathie give you the insights and strategies you need to completely transform your elder care experience.

“Oh, we don’t talk about those things!”

Caregivers say they’re frustrated and concerned, yet they ... and their loved ones ... often choose to stay in denial! If you’re walking on eggshells, avoiding important topics, or want a bit of guidance before you start, you’re there!

But all you need is a bit of guidance to help you communicate effectively with aging parents and loved ones about diffcult issues. The key? Be pro-active so you won’t have to be reactive when the dominoes start to fall!

A Journey of Love, Laughter and Letting Go

When Kathie first became a caregiver to her mom in 2003, she never imagined the healing and growth that would occur for both of them on their journey together. Kathie will share stories and wisdom about how to live and care with your eyes and heart wide open. She’ll help you embrace the journey as a caregiver and nd the many gifts hidden within the challenges.

Kathie can create custom presentations to meet your audience’s needs.

  • Inspiring Testimonial

    "During the past four years I have watched Kathie Nitz flourish and grow as a leader as she ascended from Treasurer, President-Elect, and then, through an outstanding year as President of the Connecticut Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF-CT). Kathie's year as President was an exemplar of leadership for the 21st Century as she empowered the chapter to produce outcomes for an organization that are, in fact, the three vital outcomes great coaches enable their individuals clients to achieve: 1). Acquisition of the skills, knowledge, and behaviors necessary for long-term excellent performance; 2). The competence, willingness and commitment for self-assessment and self-correction when things are not going the way desired or intended; and 3). An infectious commitment to continuous self-improvement and effectiveness that propels the individual toward the transformation they ultimately seek. Watching Kathie, as President, empower the ICF-CT officers, board of directors, committee chairs, and chapter of nearly 130 individuals voluntarily assume the desire to achieve these three outcomes individually and collectively is to witness a stunning and bravura leadership performance. Watching as the other officers and members of the board of directors continually evoke new enthusiasm as they assumed new responsibilities in the process makes it easy for me to say that Kathie's leadership is the quintessential demonstration of Lao-tzu's leadership admonition: "When the best leader's work is done the people say: We did it ourselves." ~ Jerry Sinnamon, Past President ICF-CT Chapter
