Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.


Catherine specializes in supporting women and their experience of well-being through some of the most sensitive times in their lives – pregnancy, post-partum, and dealing with pain or difficulty with their sexuality. She focuses on using mindfulness-based psychotherapy and is available to work with women individually, with their romantic partners or in groups.

In her spare time, Catherine enjoys time with her family going on adventures in nature, taking in a music concert, doing yoga and trying to keep up with her son’s very busy schedule. She’s so happy to live in the Pacific Northwest where there are so many hot springs.
