Catherine brings a wide range of experience to the table, from which she is able to craft solutions to seemingly daunting tasks in an efficient, organized and thoughtful manner.  One of her many strengths is the ability to create and communicate an atmosphere of trust with patients and clinicians. Time after time, I witnessed how this allowed for deeper personal connection in the patient/clinician relationship which ultimately paved the way for healing. Catherine skillfully combines her ability to listen, understand and empathize while supporting clients and clinicians in moving forward with their goals. I’m excited about her next venture in consulting/coaching and look forward to future collaborations.
