Cathy is an amazing listener and supporter. I had been working through my issues with her for a few months (now sadly, I can’t afford the services anymore). But I would definitely recommend her! I appreciate all your help Cathy!

Cathy has helped me more than any counselor in over 20+ years. She is very gifted in her counseling skills, super intelligent, has a great memory and communicates so well in so many ways. She also has great experience and it is so wonderful to have the opportunity to receive counseling from her. She is helping me in ways that no one else ever has or could. Thank you Cathy, Amy

One of the nicest ladies ever. I felt heard and seen whenever we talked. She offered me very helpful tools to deal with anxiety and she was available for text whenever i needed it. She was very helpful and helped me learn how to heal from previous trauma. She’s amazing!

Cathy has been a warm, welcoming presence during our meetings so far. She brings insight from scripture and her wisdom to listen and ask great questions.

I have spent relatively short time with Cathy but she has been very caring, accommodating and attentive during that time.
