MA, MFT is uniquely honest about her lifelong struggle with
communication, which led to a divorce and an eating disorder.
It wasn't until she developed strength and learned to express
herself did she win a lifelong battle with overeating and lost
100 pounds. Inspired by her beloved cat Einstein, The Courage to Speak Up:
Getting your Hairballs Out chronicles Byrnes'
hilarious struggle in an easy-to-read format that is ideal for
today’s busy men and women. Using personal experiences and 25
years of professional expertise as a family therapist, radio
show host and columnist, Byrne exposes that which keeps us
from our full potential. Along the way readers, through
insightful questions and journaling, learn how to silence
their inner critic, harness the power of anger and uncover and
properly eliminate hairballs in all areas of their lives.
It is my
conviction that conversation can change the world. I believe
that if we could all talk to each other there would be less
war, divorce, isolation, and suffering.
dialogue that I facilitate, I intend to integrate animals
and humans in community that is peaceful. Educating the
public about the immense sensitivity of living creatures and
learning to live together with respect is important to me. I
do "fun raising" and have parties for "party animals" as a
way of offering funds to legislative bodies that change laws
so that the voiceless ones are protected.

Creating dialogue is
Katy's style is deep yet comfortable, as she normalizes
our human foibles through courageous, and often funny, self-disclosure.
Katy's trademark is her belief in the power of honest communication
to make the world better through creating dialogue, and therefore,
" I believe we
can change the world if we start listening to one another
again. Simple, honest, human conversation. Not mediation,
negotiation, problem-solving, debate , or public meetings.
Simple, truthful converssation where we each have a chance
to speak, we each feel heard, and we each listen well. This
is how great changes begin, when people begin talking to
each other about their experiences, hopes, and fears.
What would it
feel like to be listening to each other again about our
yearnings, our fears, our prayers, our children?"
