I have only worked with Cathy for a short amount of time. And one thing that I noticed different about her is she actually cares. I don't feel like I'm just a client. She has gone out of her way to check up on me.

Cathy is really considerate, she listens and analyze. I feel safe with her because she is kind , never judge me which made me feel free to express without being critized.
