Don't let others steal your thunder, take away your sparkle, or make you feel less than. Find your North Star. Connect to the Power of I Am and learn to raise your energy, self-esteem, confidence, and productivity. I am here to help you with your personal and/or professional concerns and get you off  that "tight rope." 
Do your feel like the people you know and care about, really do not understand you and what you are going through? Do you feel like an imposter in the office and a monster at home? Do you feel like you are walking on the tight rope of life and feel worried that you are about to fall and crash? Learn to take the challenges in your life and view them as a "practice lab" to create "magic" by learning to take a negative experience or negative situation and turn it into a "golden opportunity" to become happy and successful in your relationship with yourself, others, and in the work place. The majority of my practice is in the form of workshops, groups, educational sessions, and life coaching. I do see clients for psychotherapy as well.Do your feel like the people you know and care about, really do not understand you and what you are going through?

I help couples, children, teenagers, and individuals look at their "blind spots," to promote growth, gain positive insights as they create positive energy and personal strength to to "unplug" the negative fuel disrupting )their lives. Learn about alchemy, the laws of attraction and how you get in your own way of creating that very desire you are longing for. I am here to help you manifest the life you want and truly desire. I am currently accepting new patients on most commercial insurance, some government assisted insurance and self-pay.
My name is Cathy Armstrong and I am a Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor. I offer counseling, life coaching, and holistic health and wellness education to individuals, groups, couples, families, and marraiges.
I have both secular and non-secular education and advanced training in the areas of registered nurse education, psychology, counseling, religious and holistic studies. I have studied world religions and healing practices from various cultures around the world and incorporate this into my workshops and trainings. I believe in the power of Faith, Prayer, the Power of the Mind/Body/Spirit Connection to help heal and move us forward in a positive direction. Most of my work is done with group training and workshops. I do see a limited number of clients on insurance panels for mental health diagnostic assessments, treatment planning, and psychotherapy. Life Coaching and LPC Intern Supervision are  also a large part of my practice.I use an integrative approach when working with clients wanting a more holistic and integrative way to look at the problems bringing them to therapy. I combine a variety of approaches but typically focus on Mindfulness, The Whole Person (Mind, Body, and Spirit}, and include the works of Carl Jung. I work with my clients to build a therapeutic working relationship where you are allowed a safe space to make changes within yourself to learn, grow, and create a relationship with yourself (what Jung referred to as "The Self"} When providing Jungian counseling and play therapy the clients individuality, their potential, and awareness of their greater good, oneness with Creation or all of life and their connection with their own Higher Self. This resembles very closely with metaphysicl principalse, and Holsitic Counseling and Life Coaching using a Mind, Body, Spirit Model for change and personal growth.

As a Life Coach ...

I help others conquer their self-sabotaging ways that no longer work for them and keep them from feeling love, joy, and peace of mind, usually because they have let others get in their way of success. We all have a blind side that we sometimes don't see and others can. We all sometimes get caught in negative thinking that leads to fear, doubt, frustration, anxiety, depression, and worry.

My focus is on self-empowerment, communication, self-esteem and confidence building, marriage enrichment, creating happy and stable families, personal and professional growth.

 I have over 36 years of combined mental health experience.therapist working with individuals from diverse backgrounds, in a variety of settings and with different needs and goals. I use a Jungian therapy, mindfulness, collaborative, integrative, & strength-based approach with my clients. I am very dedicated to your success in meeting your goals for change,as well as your health and wellness journey,  I am empathic, warm, and genuine. I work very hard to help my clients feel confident and in control of their own lives. I will provide you with tools and coping skills for self-monitoring, mood stabilization and emotional regulation to help you respond rather than react to life stressors. I am here to teach you effective communication skills, how to set healthy boundaries and express your needs, feelings, and desires in a productive and healthy way. I help clients identify their strengths and weaknesses and explore what healthy and unhealthy thinking, relationships, and life style can do to damage your mind, body, and the human spirit. My role as as your therapist and life coach is to educate, empower, guide, and support you and your loved ones during our work together.

My Mission Is to Empower You on Your Healing Journey to Success and find Inner Peace.

I am your guide for transformation and change.  You will learn to follow the laws of attraction, identify the "blocks" that keep you from being happy, learn about your own blind spots and take responsibility for the part you play in attracting the wrong person, issues with coworkers, employers, friends, working in the wrong place or attracting repeated patterns of negative experiences in your life. I take a holistic, whole person, and integrative approach to help facilitate you in making the changes you want to see happen in your life.

Stop your negative thinking, rid yourself of unhealthy patterns that lead to isolation, heart ache, and pain.  Get that job you want, create a happy home life, improve your finances, get that promotion, and create a happy family life. Move forward and resolve issues from the past that create anger that keep your mind stuck in misery, hatred, and fear.  Learn to let go of old thinking patterns that are no longer working for you.

I offer an integrative approach to therapy which is more than traditional counseling or talk-psychotherapy. With education and training in religious studies, clinical hypnotherapy, professional life coaching, holistic wellness, Mind, Body, Spirit Connection,  I combine these tools with that of traditional counseling education. 
I use Whole Person approach that specific for your style of learning and need. I offer clients a variety of tools, resources, and coping skills in the treatment of a variety of issues and disorders. In addition to talk therapy, I provide Play Therapy for children over the age of 6, Hypnosis to children teens, and adults, Relationship, Marriage, and Couples Counseling,.
