Hi, I'm Catherine!
I have been a counselor since 2004, a registered Yoga Teacher since 2009, and a wellness and mindfulness focused relationship coach since 2011.
I have a Bachelor of Science from Appalachian State University in Health Promotion with a minor in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Community Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have been in this field since 2004. I have been granted Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) status and have been licensed (LPC) in my state since 2006.
I have explored ways to help others by using my professional background and my personal journey and all the ways it has pushed me to grow.
I have created a relationship and mindfulness coaching business that brings my experience in counseling but is focused on my work as a coach and yoga teacher. I coach people individually and as couples, to become more aware of their body sensations, thoughts, feelings and auto-response behavior. I do this using the tools of mindfulness, education, metaphors, and examples. Once clients have more awareness, I work with them to deepen their understanding.
*Important Note: My relationship and mindfulness coaching and consulting business does not fall under the scope of my NCC certification or LPC license. To understand more about the difference between coaching and therapy, please click here.
Working with Me
My coaching work focuses on learning more about yourselves and using that knowledge to strengthen your relationships. I help people interested in any relationship style identify the ways they get in their own way of what we all want most – connecting authentically with others- so they can be seen, heard, understood and loved anyway by the people they love the most.
Unlike traditional counselors and coaches, I am willing to share my personal experience so my clients get the double benefit of that and my 15 years of professional experience.
