A coach and Licensed Professional Counselor, I am passionate about helping people recognize and resolve issues (especially Complex Trauma) underlying their obstacles to growth, change, and attainment in their lives and relationships.
Sometimes these obstacles present as:
serious challenges in our relationships,
behaviors, and feelings and thoughts.
Sometimes they are existential question like:
"Am I ready?"
"What do I really want?"
"How am I going to get from where I am to where I want to be?"
Often, they are disguised as our own self-defeating thoughts.
"I couldn't do that."
"I'll never be able to accomplish it."
"I'm not _________ enough."
I especially love doing this work in the online environment, free from limitations to time, distance, and privacy.
Working with Cat has really helped me. Honestly, I’m surprised how much. She’s easy to talk to. Always makes me feel that what I have to say is important. Best of all, she helped me resolve underlying issues I had no idea had been affecting me. This one thing has helped make the changes I had never been able to make before. More...
Compassionate and Caring. I knew I needed to talk with Cat about some fears I was experiencing, but when the time came, I wasn't sure I wanted to deal with them. Cat graciously waited for me to share, while making me feel safe in sharing. As we walked through each fear, I realized they were just that, fears. We replaced those fears with truth and I developed a system to deal with these and other fears as they come up in the future. I left the session feeling loved, well taken care of, and ready to keep going. Thanks Cat! More...
Cat rocks. She has this amazing ability to take the complex and seemingly unsolvable and simplify it in a way that stays with you all week. Extremely helpful.
