  • Integrative Counseling-Integrative counseling uses a variety of different theoretical approaches in client therapy. For example, instead of sticking to just one approach like CBT (cognitive behavior therapy), an integrative counselor will also use psychodynamic, Jungian, gestalt, person-centered techniques etc. Cathy uses a combination of Family Systems, Clinical Hypnosis, Mindfulness, Mediation, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, NLP and Jungian Therapy.  Counseling or psychotherapy usually overlaps some techniques and most therapists do not stick with just one model of counseling. As am integrative therapist. Cathy practices a form of 'integrative' counseling or psychotherapy, which means she draws on and blend specific types of techniques of life coaching, educational classes and therapy. As a mental health professional, registered nurse, and ordainded minister, Cathy works in an 'eclectic' way, which means she takes elements of several different psychotherapy  and life coaching models and combines them when working with clients.

  • Marriage Counseling/Couples Therapy- Couples counseling can be beneficial for couples in healthy relationships as well as those facing challenges. Cathy only takes new clients that are both 100% committed to staying together and making the necessary changes to create a happier and more fulfilling life together as a couple Intense hard work, committed effort on both parties is essential for change. As a relationship therapist, Cathy can provide couples counseling that improves communication and the understanding each partner has for the other, as well as uncover the hidden relationship issues which create tensions and can lead to anger and frustration with the relationship. There are many factors that can create tension in a relationship and cause it to become entrenched in maladaptive communication patterns.

    Common reasons couples seek counseling include:

    • Anger, rage, domestic violence
    • Jealousy, threats, name calling
    • Poor communication
    • Constant arguing or bickering
    • Sexual difficulties, financial differences
    • Transitions, life changes, health issues
    • Cheating, infidelity
    • Addictions, pornography, alcohol, gambling, drugs abuse

    Marriage and couples counseling sessions and workshops help people in a relationship obtain a more objective view of their relationship as a couple. Supportive counseling and education can help couples modify and change” the dance “ of  dysfunctional behavior they act out, decrease emotional avoidance of each other, learn the art of "fair fighting," improve communication with each other, learn to set healthy boundaries and promote personal growth and strength both as individuals and together as a couple.
