A letter from Kate:

I'm Kate, the owner of Head Above Water. Aquatics has been a central part of my life ever since I was six years old when I joined a summer league swim team in my home state of Minnesota. I went on to compete in club swimming through USA Swimming and led my High School Swim Team to four straight State Championships. Ultimately I fulfilled my dream of swimming for the NCAA Division I Women's Swim Team at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles. I competed as a Trojan for four years — FIGHT ON!
I now have the delight and honor to share my passion for aquatics with others. Swimming is an important life-long skill that will benefit the swimmer for years to come, both in and out of the pool. Whether you are looking to have your infant build a positive association with the water at the youngest age possible, are looking to help your 3-year-old overcome his/her fear of the water, want your 12-year-old to have every opportunity possible to hone his/her potential to become a competitive swimmer, are an adult looking to learn for the very first time, or anything in between, I would love to speak with you about how I can assist you in reaching your goals.

I have over 15 years of teaching experience and while I am no longer in the pool full-time, I keep limited space available in my schedule to work with a few swimmers every year. I believe I can help at any stage in the learn-to-swim process and I enjoy welcoming swimmers of all ages and abilities to work with me.

Additionally, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT106711). I have been in practice for over five years and work with individuals, couples, families and children in my private West LA practice. I have studied child development extensively and have a deep understanding of human behavior and various learning styles, which I bring to my work in the pool. My experience as a therapist allows me to meet each swimmer where they are and address their unique goals in the most efficient and effective ways possible.

I welcome the opportunity to provide this premium and exclusive experience to you and would love to speak with you more about how I can best serve your needs. Please feel free to reach out to me directly:
