Catalyst Counseling

Collaborative, compassionate, confidential, and curious approach to working with behaviors and perceptions that keep you from what you want.

You're here.  That is a big, and brave step.

I'm here.  Ready to listen, acknowledge, affirm.

Together, we got this. 


You are feeling tired, restless, antsy, empty, confused, and wanting to sort out the *stuff* in your head and heart. You want to find your footing in your family, or your marriage, or your parenting and/or yourself. You are done with doing things the same ol' way.  


My specialty is you. Using different modalities, I assess your readiness to change, provide strategies to move and guide you through the trials and errors of getting out of your comfort zones and approaching old problems with new eyes.  To learn more about Me and a possible We, go to YOUR THERAPIST.

When I listen, you talk; when you talk, you discover.
