Offers support to parents when feeling stuck in challenges that come with everyday parenting.

About Me

Catherine is an AASW registered accredited social worker (MSW) with experience working with sexual health; anti-violence; and families, children, and adolescents. She uses a combination of approaches to help ‘co-research’ the problems you’re experiencing and find ways of naming, understanding, and changing the situation.

Often people have intentions and goals that they are moving toward, but there are many bumps in the road which have them circling back into old habits or problematic ways of being. Some problems can be really hard to resist in the moment. Catherine will help you look at things from different angles, uncover overlooked skills, offer up new possibilities, help you find strategies that work for you, and help you connect with what’s important to you.

Sometimes it can be really difficult to make sense of how we’re feeling - it can seem the story our brain is telling us, our emotions and our physical being is all tied up in a tangled mess. Catherine aims to offer a safe engagement where you can explore together what might be happening for you.

Catherine is qualified facilitator of 'Tuning into Kids' parenting program.

Catherine is committed to creating an environment that supports inclusivity and respects all people regardless of race, ethnicity, colour, culture, religion, spiritual practice, sex, age, socioeconomic status, neurodiversity, perceived or actual sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, relationship status or configuration, national origin, citizenship, or physical and mental abilities. The greatest discoveries come from a diverse mix of minds, backgrounds and experiences, and points of view.
