Hi there, I'm Catherine. Are you suffering from a broken heart? Did a divorce, or the end of a romantic relationship cause it? Or have you experienced a chronic illness, pet loss, death due to suicide, homicide or overdose? Grief is a person’s response to loss, entailing emotions, thoughts and behaviors as well as physiological changes. Grief is permanent after we lose someone close though it’s manifestations are variable both within and between people. We focus on promoting healing milestones and addressing stuck points in adapting to loss using active listening and personalized interventions with specific tools to help you cope with the loss. My approach to therapy is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), in which clients are taught to recognize how their thoughts are contributing to their distress, and through cognitive and behavioral approaches, are challenged to apply coping skills in situations where they are exposed to stress. Generally, some disruption within your personal system, such as an illness, loss, or death, brings you to therapy. Examining the relationships that are in your everyday life—friends, family, and communities—help determine where you would like to focus to give you better coping skills. It is my hope that you will allow me the opportunity to walk with you through your grief and or traumatic loss. I am here as a guide to help you navigate and teach you how to cope with the loss with supportive guidance every step of the way. I look forward to walking with you through this journey of healing from loss.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow up sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Utilizing my education in grief therapy and trauma training, my profession for 17 years in Hospice/Palliative Care, and my personal experience with losses of my own has proven to be most effective in providing my clients with empathy and compassion, a deeper understanding of and insight into problems, and much needed emotional support.
