I created The Catalyst Center to provide a place where talented therapists could be empowered to do what they do best in an environment of support and challenge. I am passionate about ensuring each Catalyst client has an exceptional experience, and that our clinicians provide the highest level of care. I have hand-picked each member of our team because of their personal strengths and commitment to being a catalyst for change in the world.
