Kate Hill

Kate is a hypnotherapist and mental health consultant specializing in extreme/altered states of consciousness, and the alternative sexualities.


Kate spent four years working and volunteering as director of Portland Hearing Voices.  In that time she spoke internationally and taught both publicly and privately on the subjects of extreme and altered states from an interdisciplinary and evidence based perspective.

Having a strong foundation in positive psychology and peer support(never trust a skinny baker), Kate has moved toward the use of altered states of consciousness as a healing, unveiling and exploratory modality.  Her primary focus is freedom of expression, experience and identity.

Kate spent her undergraduate years focusing on research on extreme & altered states of consciousness, and has been consulting with these communities since 2012.  Kate worked as an expert witness for the state of Oregon in 2019.

Note to Kate Hill from Tom Clute ~

"Your fierce truth empowers me to release my own self imposed  distortions and love myself, owning my beauty and gifting me with humility, desperately missing all my life..

Thank you infinitely. Your Strength of Integrity and Fierce Beauty shines through. I see and feel your unfathomable fire . So grateful to feel the same over time.

~ "Pine Cone Tom"
