About this pro

I am socialworker for the last 19 years from Westchester County, New York. I recently located to Florida as a new resident. I am happy to be here and open my practice to accommodate and work with clients here in sunny Florida. My interest will always be where the client is in their life and any issues they may need some guidance and understanding. I am an honest, emphatic and compassionate therapist. I will always help and welcome my clients to feel trusted, comfortable and able to speak freely in therapy. Working together to reach your goals is the primary work in therapy. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
My specialties are working with many mental health diagnosis; alcohol and drug addictions; codependency issues; anxiety and self empowerment work. I offer coping skills and real talk to help the client. I will offer truth and honesty to all my clients and confidentiality; it is of the utmost importance to do so.
My ultimate goal in the therapeutic relationship is for the client to know I will be there for them; advocate and work diligently for the client to reach their goals in treatment. I understand that real life can be stressful in many ways. Releasing one's feelings is a hard journey; but works.

Seeing clients grow through therapy and helping others achieve results is why I enjoy my work so much.   Witnessing clients demonstrating how the truth will set you free! Therapy is not easy although it is a journey.  Working on goals, self-love and self reflection can help many get through the journey.  Believe me I have done this for many years and I am always amazed to see my clients using their strength to achieve their goals to embrace themselves and find and love  themselves once again.

  • Erica

    Once an introvert, highly unmotivated to be successful, I began to turn it all around when Professor McLaughlin became my mentor while at Westchester Community College. We spent countless hours together discussing strategies and resolutions to the man problems I overcame with her help. Over a decade later, Professor McLaughlin continues to encourage and uplift me, offering praise and sound advice. She is always available when I truly need trusted guidance. Having come to her a lost girl, I am now a public school teacher with a master's degree in education.

  • Dr. M.

    Catherine provided me with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that gave me tools to modify my behavior that increased the quality of my life and my relationships.

  • Kathy M.

    Cathy is so kind, caring and compassionate. She has helped me through major life tragedies. Cathy has been a life line for me and I will be forever grateful to her. I have had other counselors but no one a good as her!

  • Jonathan N.

    After a session with Catherine what ever issue that was causing me distress just went away allowing me to refocus on my schoolwork and my other important priorities and responsibilities.
