About Me

Seasoned and clinically licensed social work practitioner with demonstrated track record of successfully working with diverse client populations including families, individuals, and couples who are facing challenging situations. With nearly twenty years of experience as a social worker in a variety of clinical settings including community mental health, special education, and the United States Army. Extensive experience with completing comprehensive psychosocial assessments, special needs populations, challenging behaviors, depression, anxiety, parenting and family crisis, post traumatic stress disorder, and severe and persistent mental illness.

Expertise in collaboratively supporting clients toward goal oriented treatment outcomes; helping clients put their thoughts and feelings into words, without the fear of criticism or judgement. Guiding clients to a better understanding and possibly a different perspective of their life circumstances. Life can be challenging, everyday stress such as relationship issues, job stress, and time management conflicts can become overwhelming and impact living a fulfilled life. Consistent counseling, healthy relationships, stress management, avoiding toxic relationships, and compassion are integral in developing different patterns of behavior and belief structures that impact skills needed to change current experiences of depression, anxiety, and conflict.

A university based guest speaker and presenter for ongoing community training and school district professional learning communities, Crisis Prevention Institute trainer, and Youth Mental Health First Aid Trainer.

Catherine has been exceptional. I always learn so much about myself. She has really helped me so much! I would highly recommend her!

Cathy is so kind and easy to talk to. She has broke the barrier with my husband who does not like to talk to counselors. We have a long road ahead of us but I’m grateful for her help.

Catherine has been a dream to work with! She has helped my spouse and I get to the root of and give a solid foundation to fix issues that had come up in our relationship in a week, where as it would have taken months had we chose to go somewhere in office. Not to mention she is quick to respond and never makes you feel like she is taking sides. She is able to remain very neutral even when you may not. I’d gladly recommend her to anyone!

Cathy is engaging and really on-point with understanding my concerns and my issues. However, unlike other counselors, she offers genuinely effective thoughts and processes to overcome my issues. I'm really happy to stumble upon Regain.
