Catherine Goldhouse, LICSW, LCSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I received my bachelor’s degree from Brown University and my master’s degree from Boston College. I combine the latest evidence-based therapies with warmth and sensitivity to provide individuals and couples a safe, supportive space to understand the unhealthy patterns in their lives and explore new ways of thinking, feeling, and engaging with the world. I specialize in treating adults with anxiety and intrusive thoughts (often known as “Pure O”), and couples with communication issues.
I acquired my clinical training at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School’s largest psychiatric affiliate, on an inpatient unit in the division of Anxiety & Mood Disorders. I also trained at the OCD Institute, the nation’s first and foremost treatment center for obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Before becoming a psychotherapist I owned a wellness company in which I helped people heal from destructive relationships with food and nourishment and instead learn to eat and live according to their own values. I am also a longtime student of the Enneagram and enjoy using it as a tool for self-knowledge and growth.
