Thank you for reaching out and considering me for counseling for your child. I am currently a high school counselor and have also worked at the elementary and middle school levels. I am highly regarded in my community as being effective at helping my students. I have a great reputation and can provide references if you prefer.
I am an Approved Licensed Professional Counselor with over 18 years of experience working with adolescents and their families. I have helped clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, self-harm, parenting problems, life challenges, and lack of motivation. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse . I am a Certified Trauma Professional through IATP.
I use a variety of therapeutic approaches and techniques that have proven to be helpful to others whom I have worked closely with. I would like to find the ones your child is most comfortable with and of course most effective for them. I am a kind, compassionate and honest counselor. It is important to openly communicate about counseling strategies and how they are or are not working during our time together. This will help guide our sessions so we make progress.
A few of my favorite therapies include client-centered and cognitive behavior techniques, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Impact Therapy, and Reality Therapy. DBT is basically a non-judgmental therapy accepting you where you are but helping you make changes to reach your goals of where you want to be. This therapy focuses on mindfulness, self-regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal relationships. Impact Therapy is a non-judgmental therapy using analogies to shift our thinking to a healthier frame of mind. Reality therapy accepts you where you are and then focuses on the goals you have and how you will reach your goals.
I am flexible and will work with you on a schedule that fits you best.
I am hopeful to provide my services and look forward to our therapeutic relationship and creating positive direction in your child's life! I am here to support and empower your child. I look forward to working with you!

LPC #1874 (Expires: 2021-07-01)
Was more helpful in the first session than any therapist I've had in the past 5 years. So happy!
Catherine is very professional and has gained a great level of trust from my daughter. I always feel confident my daughter is in good hands with her. She is dedicated and very knowledgable therapist. She is amazing!!
Catherine has supported me through my most difficult times, and given me the confidence I needed to work on myself and strive towards becoming healthier and happier.
Catherine has done a speedy job at trying to calm me. She listens well, pushes my boundaries ( in a good way) and let’s me feel my feelings. I could not recommend her enough.
Catherine is wonderful. I can’t say enough kind things about what she has done in supporting my daughter.
Catherine’s been extremely helpful in helping me process my breakup! She’s definitely helped me a lot :)
I really like online counseling. Catherine Coffield is excellent. She is very helpful. I look forward to our sessions.
Catherine was AMAZING!! She was so easy to talk to. She was extremely patient and she never made me feel uncomfortable while we were trying different therapy techniques. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing professional counseling.
Catherine Coffield has been amazing! I'm in my first month, I've had a great experience already with her! She's very understanding and offers a lot of useful information!
Catherine has been very helpful, it took a few sessions to place my trust and confidence in her as I would anyone. Trust issues has been a factor in my past because of my personal history with people. But I feel happy to pursue my goals with Catherine.
Catherine Coffield is kind, understanding, and empathetic. She has really helped me implement effective strategies for improving my emotional and overall wellbeing and is always patient to listen and problem solve.

She’s the best!
Very listening and understanding. Very helpful in many ways. Makes me feel safe!
I think she’s really nice and insightful.
Catherine is a life saver. Always combing through my calm advice and tips, she knows just what to say to ease any tension or stress.
Catherine has the perfect balance of compassion and humor to help me tackle tough problems without getting into a self-obsessed mess! She offers useful tools and no-nonsense advice, and also takes the time to say "Hey, you know what? You're an awesome person and YOU GOT THIS, and I'm here to help you find the way." She has truly been a lifesaver for me in some very dark moments. Wholeheartedly recommend her!
Catherine is nothing short of amazing. She has helped me and allowed me to share both anxiety and success. At the same time offering real ways to work within both to heal.
She responds promptly and has offered some strategies and “homework” ideas to help with the areas I’m struggling with.
I’ve been working with Catherine for 3 weeks and I feel like a different person from when I started. She’s encouraging, insightful, and kind.
Catherine has been incredibly supportive and always understands my concerns, even when I have trouble expressing them. This therapy exceeds any therapy I’ve had in person and works better with my schedule. She’s helped me to create goals and kept me accountable to them in ways that haven’t worked with other therapists in the past.
Catherine does a wonderful job working with me and I'm thankful for her.
So far Catherine has been wonderful to deal with. I appreciate her comments and suggestions. Definitely going to continue working with her in dealing with my anxiety.
Catherine is amazing! She listens and asks questions that truly make you think about the issue at hand. I couldn't have been paired with a more insightful person.
I worked with Catherine on issues concerning depression, anxiety, self-worth, and career difficulties. In every response she was understanding and asked thoughtful questions that would get me to see things differently. She was always quick to respond even when I wasn't. If I should feel the need to get counseling again, I would definitely request her specifically.
Catherine is amazing she is very nice and open minded. She has helped me a lot with my anxiety and she offers great tools to help manage stress that you can use on a daily basis. I recommend highly if you want someone that is actively involved in helping you reach your goals.
Catherine has been a wonderful counselor so far. She's compassionate and understanding and wise. She's helping me manage difficult relationships with close family members. I'm so grateful for her guidance.
Catherine has been the greatest support in my life. When I first connected with her, I was right out of the psych ward, unstable and afraid. I felt no hope in getting better. She taught me skills that made me feel safer within myself and guided me in challenging my distressing thoughts. I feel like I’m part of the world again. She gave me so much hope, and that hope is what keeps me strong. I highly recommend Catherine if you are in a bad place and don’t see any way out. I feel ready to take on the world. My BPD is under control, my mood is better, and I am finally understanding what self care actually is. I can’t thank her enough.
She is very good at interpretation even if you are bad at explaining things. Very good to put anxiety into context.
Very quick to respond and helpful with techniques for self improvement and reflection.
I really respect Catherine and how she can get to the heart of the issues you are trying to work on and make you think about how to solve them yourself. It's far more effective than having someone simply give advice or sympathize.
Catherine is calm in her responses and provides sound advice and guidance to create a safe space of discussion. I appreciate receiving practical advice from her suggested methods that I can apply on a daily basis.
