Cathy is a phenomenal person to work with. She strikes the perfect balance of asking the right questions and giving me space to talk about whatever is on my mind. She’s been excellent at pushing me to tackle the hard things while also creating space for when I need rest and reassurance.

I’m so grateful to have been paired with Cathy. She always creates a judgement free space that I feel comfortable to be in. She recognizes and celebrates my wins even when I might not see them at first, and has also been a massive resource in processing some harder and more emotional things I have going on. I feel that Cathy really cares about what’s best for me and I think is an all around wonderful counselor.
