Clients will find acceptance in order to open up the deepest hurts of their hearts. There will be no judgment, only hope that the process has begun and it will be completed and completed well if the client grabs hold of the process. Cathy's office is located in the Signet House and it is much like going to the home of a trusted friend. The atmosphere is homy and relaxing. This fosters release and healing.

I approach therapy from a solution focused perspective. Just as you go to the doctor when your body hurts to help you get better, you come to a counselor when they need help in feeling better and recognize you cannot do it alone. I use cognitive behavioral therapy and very concrete approaches in psychotherapy. In the very first session I will ask you why you came and what you want to accomplish. This sets the framework for all the work we do together. If you are ready to engage in this type of collaborative work, please call me at 615-260-3883.

The goal of psychotherapy is to help a person find out how to live life to the fullest. Therefore struggles and stressors in a patients' life must be dealt with and healed in order to begin the journey towards a more fulfilled life. This means clarifying, with the patient, their specific goals, dreams, and hopes for their life while identifying and treating the barriers that keep them from leading a fulfilled and satisfied life. I use resource tapping, mindfulness, and EMDR and other techniques to help the patient heal.

My style of psychotherapy is a mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral approach. This means that we work on three areas to improve the issues you are dealing with. 1) Behavioral- we look at goals, skills, and techniques to help you 2) Cognitive- we work at recognizing and changing negative thinking 3) Mindfulness- we use meditation as a tool to learn to calm down, be in the present moment, and learn acceptance and letting go

Psychotherapy sounds ominous, doesn't it? Conjures up images of lying on a couch, having your dreams analyzed or you explaining why the ink blot you're shown looks like a bat to you instead of a butterfly. Psychotherapy is really just a technical term for personal counseling. It means a counseling office is a safe place to talk with a qualified professional and caring counselor about what is bothering you. One of my clients expressed it well, "I want to understand why I struggle with some things; and I want to change those things. I know a better future is largely up to me." If that sounds like you, I can help.

"Psychotherapy" is a word that has lost much of it's meaning in our culture. I encourage my clients to start over with understanding what psychotherapy is. The word comes for two Greek words--psyche, meaning "soul or life", and "therapeuo", meaning "to heal or serve". I am here to serve the souls of those who allow me to journey with them for a season, and to help them on a healing path. We often look together at the past, not for endless navel gazing and self-absorbing analysis, but to dislodge places where the client may have become stuck in his/her journey toward healthy adulthood. We also look at the present, and how his/her spiritual and mental habits are affecting their well being.

Brief and solution focused. This is what I offer you. I begin each session by asking you what it is that you'd like to have happen as a result of our meeting together. Then, we strategize solutions for how to get you to where you want to be. Change can happen and it can happen sooner than you think. Counseling doesn't have to be long term. It can be as brief as you'd prefer. Call me and we will journey together toward Discovering Solutions.

We hold memories in the form of visual images, body sensations, emotions and thoughts that can be triggered in our daily lives and keep us from focusing on living in the present. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is my primary form of psychotherapeutic approach. EMDR helps unlock past traumatic memories and integrate them into the present without having to relive all of the details. You’ll learn healthy ways of calming yourself down and your memories will lose their emotional intensity. EMDR can be very powerful in reducing your symptoms whether it is from PTSD, a single trauma, many smaller traumas from childhood, flashbacks, nightmares or panic attacks.
