About Me

Hello! I am Cathy and am a licensed clinical social worker in Virginia and Colorado with over 5 years of experience. I am trained in the application of EMDR. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, career challenges, and those struggling with homelessness. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My therapy style is open and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines EMDR, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and solution-based therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to ask for help. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and work with you. You can expect to have some homework and plans of action to implement to report back on during our next session.

Education & Experience

I earned my Master's Degree from Arizona State University in 2017. I became an Emergency Medical Technician in 2014. I worked at inpatient psychiatric facilities from 2015 to 2019. I also worked in the Emergency Department at a Level One Trauma hospital from 2019 to 2021. I completed two internships during school both providing services directly to homeless individuals. My education and experience has provided me with a strong foundation to help individuals from all walks of life with a variety of mental health concerns. Serving as an EMT provided me with a unique insight into issues faced by First Responders.
