My Favorite Quote

"Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we're frantic, life will be frantic. If we're peaceful, life will be peaceful, and so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace." - Marianne Williamson

Get to Know Cathy

Therapist | LMFT

I view therapy as a collaboration between client and therapist. As a team, we explore and work towards your therapy goals. I am a warm and caring therapist, who is client centered and believes in strength based approaches. The relationship between client & therapist is critical in order for therapy to be beneficial. I primarily use CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and Solution Focused Therapy as a road map in meeting client therapy goals.

My Professional Background

My professional background includes working with high-risk, traumatized and abused youth. Additionally, I have worked with adults with anxiety, depression, PTSD/Trauma, as well as LBGTQ in a variety of settings. I have worked in residential settings, outpatient treatment, schools, and private practice.
