Hi, I'm Catherine Hodge, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who specializes in grief counseling. I have extensive experience counseling people grieving many types of losses, leading me to become an accidental expert on the importance of an effective support system. I am not only passionate about supporting people through their suffering but also want to educate others on how they can as well.
I chose this field because of my own experience with counseling. My life had crumbled and I needed guidance, support and a caring ear. That experience made such a huge impact on me, I changed careers after 20 years in engineering. I have always loved to solve problems and I wanted to continue that, but preferred a career that developed personal connections and impacted people’s lives more directly. I am inspired by my clients’ strength and courage every day and feel my life is more enriched by being a part of their lives.
