About Catherine Rose, MSW, CHT, RYT
Catherine's background includes graduate studies in social work, extensive training and certification in Hakomi Psychotherapy with Melissa Grace and Phil Del Prince at the Hakomi Institute in Boulder, CO. Catherine has worked as a teaching assistant in Hakomi trainings and Recreation of the Self trainings in Portland, OR with Jon Eisman. Additionally, Catherine has studied EMDR and Somatic Experiencing. When working with couples Catherine applies her knowledge of Hakomi Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples therapy, and her two years training in family systems therapy at the SKY Center--a New Mexico family therapy center. Catherine is also informed by her personal practice in yoga and is a certified yoga teacher.
Catherine has worked in behavioral health agencies practicing both individual and family therapy. Client concerns generally range from grief, depression, anxiety, family and couples issues, stress, motivational issues as well as personal growth and development. Originally inspired to study psychotherapy after a friend committed suicide, Catherine's practice is committed to supporting people in their journey through grief and loss. Besides individual counseling, Catherine offers clients who approach as a group, or organize a group low cost grief groups for those struggling with personal loss.
Underlying Catherine's practice is a profound belief in the integration of body, mind and emotions to create deep, sustained healing. Catherine gently helps clients uncover patterns and core beliefs in a way that opens them up and allows them to fall away or become more flexible. One client described Catherine's technique as "the most direct route to problems she had ever seen." Together we process grief and heavy realities to generate possibility and fullness in your life.
Catherine believes that in order to live life honestly we must have clarity. Clarity necessary to be honest with ourselves and others and to shift patterns that no longer serve us. Hakomi offers the deep exploration for your path to become clearer and therefore more genuinely honest. Catherine assists her clients in self exploration that fosters transformative experiences.
As we deepen our self-awareness and heal we gain more access to our inherent kindness. Initially stifled, this kindness can be extended to ourselves and others in our lives.
Inspiration from the Dalai Lama:
Never give up
No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart
