Welcome and let me introduce myself! My name is Catherine Kolleth and I am dually licensed as a professional clinical counselor and a marriage and family therapist in Ohio. I have been in the profession for over 12 years, and in that time I have worked with a large variety of clients. I started working in a mental health residential treatment facility for adolescents, then worked in community health care, substance abuse residential treatment and private practice. Needless to say, I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, addictions and LGBTQ+ hurdles. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse heal and become healthier and embrace the happiness in their lives.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, without stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive, dialectial behavioral, systems, client centered and solution focused therapies, as well as any other therapeutic pieces that are appropriate to help you attain your goals. I will respect your unique and specific needs for treatment planning and goal creation, as you are the ultimate expert in your life.
Finding the right fit to help you navigate your life challenges is very important for success and I understand that. I work with my clients to help them identify changes they want to make, help them find ways to incorporate these changes into their lives and help them problem solve when necessary. Change can be daunting, although very rewarding in the long run. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I have been working with Catherine for a few months now, and I really feel like she listens to me and is routing for me. She offers practical advice and wisdom with exercises that help me out of anixiety and stress. She checks in if we go a long time with out a journal or scheduleing a session. I never feel rushed, and always feel better when we hang up. I love the service and how tech friendly it is. We can be in touch in between our video chats through the app., and it is very affordable.

Catherine is “down to earth”, kind, compassionate, and a great listener & communicates very well. She offers different perspectives and coping skills on different life situations that I would have never thought of, but at the same time is very compassionate and understands sometimes things are just the way they are sometimes. She’s a wonderful therapist.

Catherine is very easy to talk to. She is a great listener and offers up sound advice that is practical and easy to understand. After messaging her and speaking to her during my session, I instantly felt better. I would recommend her service to friends and family.
