We are designed with the capacity to heal. Regardless of history or struggle, I believe there is a path to living more fully. My training in family-of-origin trauma and attachment science works well with my knowledge about the human nervous system. Using a combination of education, experiential work, and body-based therapy, I help individuals to re-claim their personal power and authenticity. Many of us have templates from our past that we keep re-creating over and over; and research has shown that with guidance and support we can re-wire our brains to live more freely, fully and resiliently.
Relationships are the cornerstone of our lives and creating a harmonious, happy partnership can enhance nearly every other aspect of your life.
Cultivating a healthy, safe, and connected relationship provides the freedom to flourish in other areas of life. The relationship can be a harbor of comfort and connection to return to from the stressors of the outer world as well as a secure base from which to launch for the parts of life that take us away from home.
If you notice some areas where your relationship needs help developing better communication, clear boundaries, or just feeling close again, I am here to help.
We are experiencing a paradigm shift in the delivery of mental health services due to the technology that exists today by which we can effectively take our office visit online.
Reasons online therapy may work for you:
Time: Today’s schedules are filled to the brim. Travel time varies by location but is often a factor
Accessibility: Physical or mental limitations
Geography: Often specialized therapists are not available in your town
Responsibility: Home or business responsibilities often conflict with your health commitment
Online therapy sessions may be a viable option for you. You can contact Catherine by phone or email to discuss what would be the best arrangement for you.
The Healing Journey 3-Day Intensive
Valuing and creating a healthy relationship with self is an important component of healing from emotional wounds. Less than nurturing experiences in childhood cause us to adapt and become who we think will please others, creating codependence and dissatisfaction in relationships.
The Healing Journey is a three-day dynamic educational and experiential process that will help you understand how your earlier life experience affects your current life. You will learn how to deal with emotions connected to less than nurturing events, and begin the process of resolving past hurts that have kept you stuck in unproductive and destructive patterns (depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders and painful relationships). The focus is not on blaming caregivers, but rather healing the trauma of any past events impacting adult life. This program is based on the groundbreaking work of Pia Mellody and utilizes her treatment model for healing.
Professional/ Clinical Consultations
Skilled professionals may run into peculiar circumstances when normal intervention does not work. Often this is an indication that there is a nervous system survival process at work that a client cannot be talked or reasoned out of.
Reasons a professional may seek consultation:
Normal interventions are not working with a particular client
Interested in applying Somatic work in your practice
Feeling stuck or isolated in your work
More effective results for your clients
Looking for inspiration
Professional consultations can provide a collaborative and enhanced approach to your practice to help you gain new skills, enhance existing skills, address difficult clients or simply validate your professional approach. Fee: $160/hour.
