About My Practice

My Mental Health Practice

 I Truly enjoy helping Trauma Survivors of all ages who really want to get  well and are willing and ready to work hard to achieve full recovery. I  also have a great deal of experience treating anxiety, depression,  grief, phase of life issues, women's issues, weight loss issues,  dysfunctional family systems issues and ACOA issues. I have also worked for  companies providing critical incident debriefing for their employees after a crisis. 

My Treatment Focus

Catherine Has a Heart for helping Trauma Victims of all ages get to the  root of the pain that keeps them stuck in their lives and relationships.  Victims of Trauma often spend a lifetime reenacting their trauma in one relationship after another, until they finally give up on trying to  "get it right".

My Therapy Approaches

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Catherine Utilizes Child Centered Play Therapy Techniques to treat children under the age of 10.

Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
