a doctor's praise

I view Cathy as my local “expert” when it comes to treating patients with trauma-related problems…Cathy is an excellent clinician who has truly worked miracles in treating clients that others would consider untreatable. Cathy has also worked to educate her colleagues regarding the complex issues related to treatment of emotional trauma-based psychopathology. I recommend Cathy without reservation as clinician and colleague.

peers acknowledge trauma-informed expertise

Cathy took the time out of her schedule to meet with me on a weekly basis to train me in trauma informed therapy. .. I cannot express how beneficial my meetings with Cathy were. Cathy is a gifted teacher and mentor. She has so much knowledge, coupled with a natural gift of insight and ability to heal others. Cathy is warm and compassionate, and firm and structured all in one. My clients have benefited significantly from the knowledge I have gained from Cathy. I owe Cathy my deepest gratitude both personally and professionally.
