Hello my name is Catherine Thorington and I am a licensed professional counselor. Welcome to my profile and thank you for taking the time to get to know me! I am a mother of 3 children, one daughter and two son's and the grandmother of two a girl and a boy. I live in rural central Michigan in the middle of a quiet peaceful meadow surrounded by birch and pine trees.
My approach to counseling is based on a partnership between you and I working together to discover the source of your pain and working out how to heal from it. I use an integration of Christianity, spirituality, psychology and multiculturalism. Our past impact every aspect of our life nd affects our present functioning. If we can understand the events that shaped us, we can then begin to heal. I use a variety of tools and techniques such as Cognitive and Solution Focused, Acceptance and Family Systems to facilitate change and develop self awareness.
During my career I have worked with a variety of issues; anger, conflict resolution, attachment, grief, anxiety, depression, marriage, obsessive compulsive disorder, bi-polar disorder, parenting and relationship issues. I have taken continuing education classes in anxiety, depression, trauma, women's issues, marriage, behavioral issues and implicit bias awareness.

I'm a child of divorce, a sister and daughter of substance abusers and a wife and mother to military service members. I've adopted a daughter and dealt with miscarriage and infertility issues. I lost my younger brother am caring for my aging mother. I've struggled with chronic illness and overcame anxiety and depression.
