About Catherine's Practice:

I recently moved from Chicago where I worked at a group private practice for nearly ten years. At this practice, I was considered a "generalist," meaning I demonstrated the ability to work with all kinds of presenting problems, demographics, and ages. However, I was known for my work with adolescents, couples, and individuals with profound distress. I think it is important to respect the complicated nature of human beings and life. I look beyond your diagnosis and symptoms because I see you as so much more. My approach is one of empowerment. It's not ultimately about me solving your problems. Its about me teaching you how to trust and listen to yourself in a way that serves you throughout your life.

I believe that work is optimized by the match between therapist and patient. I place a lot of value on the relationship we build with one another. It is important that your needs are met and that you work with someone you feel comfortable sharing your joy and pain with.  That matters most, and I hope you use that as a litmus test to deciding whether you want to pursue a working relationship with me, or any other therapist.
