Cathy S Harris, LCSW 

Therapy & Coaching

I care about "what happened to you" and I strive to provide a compassionate, supportive space for you to share your concerns. Effective work can result in your improved ability to function and to pursue your best life. I offer acceptance without judgment, practical tools, constructive education and a conviction that you are capable! 

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years' experience helping people get beyond traumatic experiences and on to their best life. My office is in Pt. Loma, San Diego, California. Call for a free consultation: 619.807.9159

What can you expect from trauma counseling?

You can get beyond depression, anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Response, Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Response, addiction and any other condition that has kept you down.

Though the difficult situations of the past can't be changed, we can work together to process through the effects of earlier experiences. By applying practical therapy approaches and techniques, we will get to the root of behavior patterns or negative beliefs that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.  Freedom is waiting for you!

Cathy offers coaching for ex and exiting members of cults and high-control groups. Friends and family members may also benefit from coaching to cope with their concern. Coaching is goal-oriented and can help you transition out of an oppressive system to freedom.  Learn more
