Cathy S Harris, LCSW
Are you frustrated with “vent therapy”? Talk therapy that seems to consist mostly of “how are you?” or “what was your week like?” Have you been diagnosed and medicated with little progress? Are you ready to try something different?
A wellness-focused approach is best suited for those who are not in crisis and who are ready to engage in deeper work. Developing increased self-compassion, radical acceptance and understanding about how we humans use self-blame to survive can help you move beyond the effects of trauma.
Are you ready to commit your time, energy and resources to your well-being? Trauma survivors are often conflicted about investing in themselves, yet this is what’s essential for claiming your best life.
I care about "what happened to you" and I strive to provide a supportive space for you to share your concerns. Effective work can result in your improved ability to function and to pursue your best life. I offer acceptance without judgment, practical tools, constructive education and a conviction that you are capable!
Ready to Invest in Yourself?
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years' experience in a variety of settings helping people get beyond traumatic experiences and on to their best life. At this time I am not a provider for any HMOs—meaning I am not “in network” with any insurance company. Your willingness and ability to commit to yourself will pay off!

What can you expect from wellness-focused trauma counseling and coaching?
Though the difficult situations of the past can't be changed, we can work together to process through the effects of earlier experiences. By applying practical approaches and techniques, we will get to the root of behavior patterns or negative beliefs that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. Freedom is waiting for you!
We'll use art, music, compassionate communication, reflective listening and other modalities to assist your growth. For some individuals, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and bilateral stimulation is appropriate. We'll make decisions, together, as to what modalities you would like to engage.
Cathy offers coaching for ex and exiting members of cults and high-control groups. Friends and family members may also benefit from coaching to cope with their concern. Coaching is goal-oriented and can help you transition out of an oppressive system to freedom.
