Catherine Virden, MA, LPC, NCC, EMDR

Your counseling journey is unique to you, and I would be honored to join with you in navigating your story and nurturing resilience. Trauma has many faces that erode away our sense of self, safety, and belonging. My hope is to forge a safe ecosystem and therapeutic relationship that equips you to thrive. I integrate attachment based therapy and polyvagal theory to help equip you to befriend your nervous system.

About Me: Catherine lives in Tennessee with her husband, Britton, and her pitbull/home-office assistant, Rosie.

In her spare time you can find Catherine practicing yoga and pilates, exploring rural Tennessee, and training and riding her quarter horse mare, Evangelina.
