Java Chat Podcast Welcomes Katherine Jansen-Byrkit – Awakening Your Life

Katherine Jansen-Byrkit joins us on Java Chat to explore the topic of mental health. Early in her career, Katherine worked in the realm of Public Health where she helped manage violence prevention and teen health programs for over a decade. But eventually, she decided to shift gears and found herself pursuing a career as a Licensed Professional Counselor. Her private practice not only holistic psychotherapy but also retreats and workshops, as well.

In this episode, we explore people’s relationship with themselves. Many often go about their days wondering, “Am I good enough?” However, Katherine believes that mentality is dangerous. When you’re constantly questioning your worth, your actions become a reflection of that insecurity. People need to learn how to be in touch with themselves so that they can appropriately navigate life.

Last year, Kathering published her first book “River to Ocean: Living in the Flow of Wakefulness.” Here, she explains how to find one’s “awakened self” through reflecting on old beliefs, anxiety, preoccupation with death and complicated relationships.
