About Me

I am licensed in New Mexico with 13 years of professional clinical work experience with teens. I have experience in helping young people with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, & depression. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. In working with young people, I take time to involve the caregivers as it is JUST as important to keep both the young person's privacy while getting/give feedback to the caregivers. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Catherine has really given us the tools to navigate through our ups and downs in our relationship. She suggested books and worksheets to help us grow both as a couple and individually. Overall a great human being that is very capable of helping anyone that may need it.

She has my best interest at heart, is very empathethic and kind. Has a lot of information to pass along. She works very hard to be sure i can be seen, due to my crazy schedule.

I just started seeing Catherine and I feel very good about my experience so far, I can't give an in depth review since we've just started out... but I gotta say that I feel really positive about this whole experience and Catherine seems like a great fit for my complicated needs!
