Testimonials ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐



I had never heard of ribbon divination.   Katta turned out being 100% accurate using simple ribbons, about my friend’s love relationship.  I have had a tarot reading from Katta that made me question, for an entire year, my housing priorities.  She’s very insightful and accurate. - Connie, Tucson


Educational Consulting 

Katta Mapes is a leader and innovator in the field of Social and Emotional Learning in the Tucson community and has been more than a decade.  Well before current research bore out the benefits of Mindfulness training in our school classrooms, Katta was leading with this initiative.  Well before that, she had written her book on emotional intelligence - Stop! Think! Choose! with the Poster Set on Building Emotional Intelligence in Young People.  That poster set of seven perfectly designed posters has been the main backdrop in my counseling office with PK-grade 5 students in my office at Seoul Foreign School and now at Hong Kong International School.   Katta is an educator, counselor and writer to be paid attention to as she delves deeper with each writing into what encourages and builds emotional intelligence. – Annette, PsyD, Hong Kong


Intuitive Coaching

Katta is an influential person in my life. As a mentor, counselor, and intuitive life coach, she has offered valuable insight and wisdom, helping me gain clarity and overcome obstacles. During a difficult breakup, Katta supported me in understanding my emotional patterns and guided me towards healing. With compassion and authenticity, Katta created a safe space for me to explore my feelings and make positive choices. I am very grateful for Katta's guidance and help as a guiding light in my life's journey. – Liz, Maine


Tarot Class Teacher

Katta Mapes has been a tremendous support in my life, acting as my Tarot Card teacher during a difficult time. Her ability to simplify complex information was incredibly valuable and made learning much easier for me. Katta not only designed her own Tarot curriculum, but also provided insightful guidance and even wrote a letter to support my court case, attending the hearing with me. She consistently listens to my needs and offers legitimate solutions and resources to help me move forward. Katta's talent for finding the best next steps is truly a gift, and her dedication to serving others is evident in her creative ideas and research abilities. She is a kind, intelligent, and wise individual who genuinely wants to see you reach your full potential. - Nora, Arkansas
