About Catherine


Catherine has been called a teacher/therapist because of her educational approach to counseling.   She teaches in a way that helps clients remember what they learned in session, and put it into operation.  She does this by using:

  • Good Diagrams
  • Good Definitions
  • Good Stories

She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and certified TA Instructor. Transactional Analysis is a positive theory of psychology, created by Eric Berne, MD.  TA has helped millions of people live positive, authentic lives.

TA tools help us identify how people get ‘stuck’ in poor beliefs, habits, and feelings. The tools help people overcome common problems, such as depression, anxiety, hopelessness, and relationship problems. TA principles are simple, and therefore are excellent for couples and family work.

In her workshops and iBooks, Catherine teaches TA with story-telling. Good stories are fun.  Good stories can help you see how other people use TA principles.  Her stories make workshops and webinars informative and inspiring.

Before starting her private practice in 2006, Catherine was the Director of Organizational Training and Development for Marie Callendar Pie Shops Inc., in Orange County.
