I commonly work with survivors of sexual assault , as well as a wide range of mental health concerns, including adjustment disorders, depression, anxiety, trauma and stress-related disorders, trouble with functioning, and interpersonal relationships.
Are you exhausted? Dissatisfied? Need things to change? I believe change begins to happen when you feel seen, heard and understood in the situations you are struggling with. Without this support, people often feel isolated, irritable, confused, shame, or helpless that their situation will get better. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space so that you do not have to face things alone. You don't have to feel hopeless, stuck, alone, or misunderstood anymore.

Using a trauma-informed approach, I help clients to face a multitude of issues, including sexual abuse and trauma, relationship issues, family issues and women's issues.
We all struggle from time to time. In the course of our different journeys through life, many unexpected hardships come our way. Facing these situations can often times leave us feeling ill-equipped, to say the least, leading to negative self-talk and a less than satisfactory outlook on life.

EMDR can help reduce the negative effects of trauma (physical/emotional/ sexual abuse /PTSD) and will allow you to begin healing from those experiences.
Are you stressed, confused, unsure of where to turn? I'm here to help you make the most of the life you've been given! My approach to counseling is to ensure each individual, couple/family has a unique experience that works best for their current life situation. This starts with developing a therapeutic relationship that is built upon empathy, understanding and non-judgmental positive support. My hope is that I can come along side you and help remove the obstacles responsible for blocking your emotional, relational/spiritual and mental health.

My passion as a Sexual Addiction Therapist comes from a life-long struggle with my sexual addiction. From a very young age, I entered a highly sexualized world, including sexual abuse by five different men from age five to fourteen. All of these men played a significant and trusting role in my life. When I was eleven years old, losing my father to emphysema forced me to grow up overnight into an overcompensating perfectionist. Perfect student, perfect son, and later a perfect member of the United States Air Force created an unsustainable persona.

A particular quote by Maya Angelou always resonated with me, “there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”, and has directed my style of counseling, which is very person-centered, compassionate and empathetic. I believe we all deserve a safe space to turn off our editor, speak freely, and release that which is burdening us. The goal is to empower clients by identifying internal strengths, overcoming excessive and often chronic feelings of guilt and shame, challenging negative beliefs and replacing those with a more positive self image. To find your true voice underneath the layers of previous conditioning.

Anastasis is the Greek word for which we derive the word "resurrection" meaning "raising up or rising up." Finding the ability to rise above life's challenges can leave you feeling hopeless and the journey to reconnect with life can often be a difficult one, especially when your journey includes recovery from traumatic events or struggles with substance addiction. I am here to walk along side you and help equip you for the bright future that awaits you. I believe you can hope again, you can dream again, your joy will be restored and your strength renewed. Yes, you can get up again!!!

You can call me Cathy. Are you stuck in your head, overthinking, and/or experiencing physical symptoms of depression, anxiety or trauma? As we go through the experience of life, we learn things about our environment and how to function within that environment. We are always learning and sometimes our brain solidifies messages that are harmful to our mental health, I want to help you restructure those messages so that they are more accurate or helpful. Additionally, I will assist you in the development of skills to manage strong emotions and finally assist you to form solutions to your problems.

Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behavior includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.
