Catherine started her journey as a mental health provider working with trauma and the Latino community.  She herself is an immigrant with her own story and struggle of becoming bicultural and creating a new identity.

A gymnast in her youth, she discovered yoga after an abdominal surgery left her weak and depleted. This began her passion for exploring how we hold emotions in the body. Yoga helped her regain her strength and flexibility and through meditation she also opened the door to exploring her spirituality. Twenty five years later, yoga therapeutics and yoga philosophy continue to be a great source of support for her transition into the middle stage of her life as she heals from a ruptured lumbar disc and adjusts to her new body and being. 

In recent years she has been guided to reclaim and deepen her connection to earth medicine and energy work.  Her spiritual practice includes meditation, creating and holding altars and ceremonies, , shamanic journeying, plant medicine and more. She is very connected to Peru and its ancient healing practices and regularly travels there to study with her teacher and visit the sacred temples and land.
