Meet Your Host, Kathy Redwine

“I want to normalize the emotional roller coaster we experience just by virtue of being human and our many various life experiences - we are the sum of our experiences.”

Kathy Redwine is a Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC, NCC based in Georgetown, South Carolina. Her private practice, Redwine Counseling, is focused on young people ages  3-20. She is passionate about ending the stigma of mental health, especially when it comes to children.  

Kathy launched the Dealing and Feeling podcast shortly after attempting to offer a grief group for teens who had recently suffered two student suicides at their high school. Through this effort, she found that the best way to help them was to meet them where they already are - via technology on a digital platform.
