Catherine has literally and figuratively saved my life. She has listened to me and given me the validation that I have been looking for for years. No one has ever made me feel as heard as Catherine. She has real skill and real knowledge that can genuinely help someone with mental illness. I’m now healing from trauma that I never even realized I had. I have hope for the future. Thank you Catherine!

Catherine has been a tremendous help so far! I've only had a couple sessions, but I'm already gaining a lot of insight into my struggles and how to move forward. She has also taught me some great coping strategies to help manage anxiety in my daily life. I would definitely recommend her for therapy.

Written by A.M. on Jun 24, 2021 after therapy with Catherine for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Catherine is a wonderful therapist. She listens and respects you and does not make you feel judged, but is firm when she needs to be. I've had counselors before that are too passive to make real progress, but Catherine is not that. She seems to be very well trained and is good at her job.

Catherine has a way of putting thing in perspective and showing new ways to approach situations that you previously haven’t thought of. She has a wonderful understanding of the human mind and behaviors and was able to make me feel comfortable within the first session. I am very lucky to work with her.
