Hi I’m Cathy, a therapist at Lighthouse Counseling. I am thrilled to start my practice at Lighthouse and continue my career journey with this wonderful group of therapists.
I attended Ashford University where I earned a B.A. in Psychology in 2011. In 2014, I earned a M.A. in Clinical Psychology, specializing in Counseling from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I interned here at Lighthouse Counseling with Jeff Ferguson as part of my program. I am very proud of my academic record where I graduated in the top 1% of my class and earned a scholarship. Recently, I finished my externship and received my professional license. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), which holds therapists to a higher standard of excellence.
Although I do not have a lot of professional experience, I do feel that I have a lot of life experience that I bring into therapy. I am married and have an adult son, which helps me relate and understand the challenges of marriage and parenting. I have an early childhood background and worked with very young children and their parents for 13 years. Being older I have experienced and overcome many life changes and challenges, which I feel adds to my therapeutic perspective. By nature I am a very positive person and try to incorporate positivity into all my interactions both professionally and personally. Most people find me friendly, empathetic and non-judgmental.
My therapeutic approach incorporates various techniques and philosophies to meet the unique needs of my clients. I have used client-centered, positive psychology, CBT, play therapy, talk therapy, and solution-focused techniques. I am always looking to add new therapeutic techniques to my toolbox.
I work with children, adolescents and adults who are experiencing: anxiety, stress, depression, child behavioral issues, parenting challenges, and life changes/adjustment issues.
I would love the opportunity to work with you and/or your family member. You may contact me by calling or texting 262-370-2236 or emailing me at email@example.com. If I am unavailable please leave your name, phone number and best time to reach you.
At this time I am accepting cash, credit card, check and debit card payments. I do accept insurance and Medicaid, however I am currently considered an out of network provider.
