Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Staff Therapist

“Children don’t say, ‘I had a hard day, can we talk?’ They say, ‘will you come play with me?’”

Working with children requires knowing how children feel seen and heard. Play therapy offers therapists the chance to explore thoughts and feelings a child may be having in a non-threatening and age-appropriate way. Catherine has years of experience in providing play therapy, along with CBT and mindfulness, to children and adolescents who have experienced trauma. She understands the importance of managing family systems and, therefore, aims to include parents so that skills practiced in treatment can be reinforced in the home. Common areas of concern include anxiety, depression, trauma, social skills building, behavioral concerns, and parent coaching.

Catherine received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Notre Dame. Following graduation, she lived in Boston teaching math to high school ELL students. While she enjoyed teaching, Catherine enjoyed spending time with students one on one and working with them from a therapeutic lens. Catherine then moved to New York and attended Columbia University School of Social Work where she received her MSW. Catherine went on to join the Center for Comprehensive Health Practice as a clinician offering therapy for both those affected by substance abuse and those in recovery. She focused her work on providing therapy to children and teens, implementing a wide range of interventions, including play therapy, mindfulness, TF-CBT, and motivational interviewing.

After growing up in the northeast, Catherine is excited to settle and put roots down in Georgia. A mother to two young kids, Catherine tries to make the most of her free time, which includes watching new movies, puzzling, reading, and dreaming of places she’ll travel one day.
