Catherine Mather-Colcernian is a wonderful therapist. She listens to me. She checks on me on days when we don’t have a session. She utilizes different techniques and I feel she truly has expertise.
Amazing counselor. Has a way of understanding the burdens/pre-occupations of her clients and articulating them in a way that makes sense. She creates a safe and non judgmental environment and really works to help me.
Catherine is warm and attentive in her therapy style. She works to understand, challenge, and support. I am lucky to have been matched with her!
Catherine is the best therapist I could ask for! She understands my needs, emotions and questions. I feel comfortable confiding in her. Above everything, I just feel like she gets me!
Catherine is great and I enjoy the sessions we have had over the last couple of weeks.
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.
Catherine is very supportive, she provides great advice and insight for the issue that I am going through. The worksheets gave me opportunities to practice and to reflect by myself. Definitely a highly recommended counselor.
