Compromise. Respect. Perspective taking. Commitment. So many components are necessary to keep a relationship happy and mutually satisfying. It is helpful to have an objective therapist to sort out the habits, biases, and expectations that may be an obstacle to happiness, support and fun in your couples relationship. Together we can explore relationship dynamics that may be hindering your relationship success and satisfaction. We will explore attachment styles, personality types, mending relationship disruption, effective communication, and healthy couples boundaries. This will allow you to mindfully structure your relationship for a deeper connection while expressing your individuality in a non judgmental and accepting framework.
I am a humanistic psychologist. I use an approach that emphasizes an individual's strengths and skills in a wholistic way to address issues that are distressing and limiting in a client's life. I help clients toward self actualization, the ability to better understand self and others, feel confident and secure in their abilities, understand their motivations and personality, address external stressors, and develop personal insight and a life philosophy that guides their decision making and problem solving.
I encourage self awareness and mindfulness to help clients respond consciously to events as they unfold, and to remain true to their worldview and values, while negotiating difficult circumstances in this chaotic world. Many of us did not have parenting that taught us conscious healthy boundaries, understanding of self and others, or secure trusting attachment, but these can be learned and amended through therapy. The term "earned security" is a psychology term that denotes an individual who remediates traumatic events, including: childhood trauma, adult trauma, and relationship trauma, and strengthens their core self concept to include greater self esteem, and a strong comfortable attachment system (post traumatic growth).
I know this because my experience in self development included all these, as well as a new understanding of self compassion, self acceptance, patience and a process of differentiation of self that allows for both autonomy and deep caring attachment simultaneously. I offer this knowledge in a non judgmental and wellness based framework. I draw from both professional experience and evidence based scientific research. I love to work with people from all walks of life, all ages, and diverse world views and focus on the human commonalities we share, as well as understanding a client's individual and specific experiences, needs, challenges and goals. I am inclusive, and supportive, patient and caring and passionate about helping others.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Cathryn Charette. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with ReGain might be different.
Cathryn helped in my husband’s & I’s marriage tremendously! 100% recommend Cathryn ♥️
My husband was not comfortable with therapy but did it because it was important to me. Because of Cathryn, he looks forward to it because he feels comfortable and heard. He gets suggestions that help him. It’s shocking to me how much he enjoy our sessions and it is due to Cathryn. Things are going so well and we are learning to communicate better and be a team.
Cathryn was hands-down the best therapist I've had. She was incredibly caring, intelligent, and thoughtful. She provided us with a safe environment where we felt comfortable discussing the hurdles in our relationship. Whenever necessary, Cathryn provided us with insightful and constructive feedback that gave us a more compassionate understanding of the obstacles each of us faced in the relationship. Most importantly, she provided us with tools to better understand each other's communication styles. She never took sides, but instead encouraged us to see each other's perspectives. We are so grateful for Cathryn.
We are enjoying our experience. We have been able to relate well with her well.
