I didn’t know where to turn, and I turned to you. – what you gave me was just what I needed. Support but also gentle nudges to help me make good decisions and face up to tough and scary issues.

The Four-Session Workshop helped me approach my anxiety with a different perspective. Because I can name these things, I now have tools to deal with my emotions and respond to them better.

I wanted to write to you mainly to express how meaningful our therapy was together. …I wanted to thank you. So thank you! … Thank you for letting me go when you did, and for being there for those many years while I came to figure out more of who I truly am. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I do not think I would be who I am today if I had not found you 10 years ago.

I wanted you to know that my experience with you has never really stopped. I see how much you’ve helped me be clearer about myself and I feel a closeness and warmth between us that stays with me – I could’ve blown a great relationship without you, besides missing the boat over/over again about myself.

I owe so much to you, Catherine, for these changes, for the hanging on, for the foot on shore. I used to be terrified waiting to keep an appointment – I didn’t want to face the truth. But you helped me see it and yes, it set me free. You’ve really helped someone salvage a life that was ready to – well, you know…

At least a year ago I came to you for “emergency counseling” here at UC and you were so helpful and compassionate, way beyond the call of duty – and I am forever grateful for your help, even though I only saw you a couple of times. …You suggested I seek outside help. I owe you a lot I think since you were the motivating force to get me into long-term therapy in the first place.

I keep your support for me close to my heart. And the Sandplay pictures.

With conversations, images, stories, sand, grief and laughter, and your love surrounding me, supporting me, I step into the current of my life; I am strong and joyous in the deep awareness that this is my life. I know I would not be married or have a family if I had not done such deep work with you. For this gift from you, I can never fully thank you.
– SH, Cambridge, MA
I owe you a great deal because you helped smooth out that awful rough road I was traveling and gave me the impetus to accomplish a number of personal things… There is no real way I think of to repay you except that my final “success” is in a good part due to you.
