(MA, LPC, EMDR, Trained)

About Me

For the last 7 years, I believe the goal of therapy is to increase both psychological and spiritual wholeness. I understand that each client will have their own unique approach and preference as to how to best incorporate spiritual practices into the therapy process and invite God into the conversation. Clients can safely vent feelings, build on pre-existing strengths, and learn strategies.

Through a combination of therapeutic techniques, I have helped individuals manage challenges, take responsibility for their lives: to heal, learn, gain the strengths to risk change, and move forward. I support and respect clients' efforts to come to peace with the past, to be authentic, responsible, self-sufficient, and to take an active role in the creation of a far happier life.

Remember, others cannot hurt you, unless you give them the power to do so. If your ready to take that first step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I have only been talking to Catalina Garcia for a short time (11 days) but she has really helped me in a time of crisis and upheaval (18 year relationship ending on top of years of ongoing, untreated depression, anxiety, OCD and Adult ADD). She listens and responds in a timely manner with relevant information, workable therapies/tools, encouragement and respect for my feelings. I believe she is a truly enlightened and caring therapist and I highly recommend her.

Catalina García has been one of the greatest helps in my life in the little time I have been talking with her. From the very first moment I opened up, she checks in on me and gives me great resources that help me with what I am going through. She listens to me and respects me. I have slowly started to see a transition in the way I think and act since I’ve started betterhelp.
