Counseling helps you maintain mental wellness. Just as you walk, swim, or go to the gym to stay in physical shape, counseling is a way to maintain emotional and spiritual fitness! Through counseling, you uncover more of your true self, come more alive, and live with more vitality.
Trained first as a high school teacher and then a professional counselor, Cathy has been helping people learn and grow for over 40 years. Since 1998, she has counseled people of all ages.
