Professional statement

Catherine is a psychotherapist who has been practicing for 14 years in the state of North Carolina. Catherine's clients bring empowerment into their lives because of their improved ability to deal with their anxiety, emotional regulation, and relationship problems. In addition Catherine works with her clients life histories to understand any past experiences or patterns that may impact them currently. Some of the strategies Catherine teaches her clients include such techniques as mindfulness, progressive muscle relaxation, and self talk. Catherine's therapeutical approach is based in Dialectical Behavior Therapy which teaches four important skills that can help with overpowering emotions and keep them in check, so one can live their life.

Catherine has experience in administering and interpreting psychological tests, including ADHD evaluations, and she can help with the difficulties that can occur at work, home, and with relationships when one has a diagnosis of ADHD.

Catherine does not discriminate against anyone and accepts everyone for who they authentically are! Catherine feels it is important to use one's voice to advocate for those that don't, and she participates in marches and community actions that support LGBTQ, BLM, and women. Catherine is an animal lover and has an Aussie Adele, Maine Coon Cat Bon Jovi, and marmalade cat David Bowie who bring much joy.
