I work with adults to increase their personal resilience and achieve success. Together, we strive towards discovering personal values and creating meaningful goals that move you forward in a positive and balanced way.
I also specialize in working with artists because I know how tough this profession can be. Whether you are an emerging artist and looking to put some effective practices in place, or are a seasoned professional looking for inspired rejuvenation, I will work alongside you to keep you on your creative path.
I also work with actors on audition preparation and technique development
"The life-coaching work that Catherine has done with me has been life-giving. I started working with her as I was coming out of a time of deep struggle and her open and compassionate personality made me feel comfortable right away. Catherine adapted to a style of coaching that works for me and where I’m at in my life. With her, I’ve been able to identify goals, priorities and what I truly care about. Most importantly, she’s given me the tools to move forward with resilience to realize my potential and live a more fulfilling life."

“Just moments after my first session with Catherine, I could already feel the fog starting to lift. She offers support, enthusiasm, guidance, humour, gentle honesty and, most importantly, she gives you the tools you need to take control of your own life.”
- Kate H., Professional Writer & Actor [Toronto]
“I’ve been meeting with Catherine regularly for the last year, and I’ve always felt her dedication to helping me stay focused and positive through the early stages of my career has been an asset that any creative professional at a young age could benefit from. From the moment you sit down with her, you sense there’s an immediate sense of caring and desire to help that is so rarely found amongst the creative world these days. Thank you, Catherine!”
- Stephen S., Writer/Emerging Artist [Toronto]
"I find it difficult to put into words just how thankful I am for what Cath has done for me. Cath is an inherently inspirational person, which in combination with her incredibly warm and caring personality creates an empowering positive environment. One of her many fantastic qualities is her ability to simultaneously offer a kind and sympathetic ear to your troubles while also coming up with a strategic approach as to how to move onwards and upwards with your life. I leave my sessions feeling confident that I will not only be able to get back on an even keel again, but go on to develop the strength to realize my dreams and long term goals."
- Fitness Instructor, [London England]
“Working with Catherine was one of the best decisions I have made this year. She helps me put my life into perspective and figure out the next steps on my career path. She is incredibly friendly and more than willing to help me any way she can, which makes it really easy to open up to her. I highly recommend Catherine to any artist in need of a life coach or simply a great chat!”

Catherine is uniquely in-tune with the needs and feelings of both of my girls (ages 11 and 13), even though they could not be more different. She has provided them each with guidance, friendship and the tools to tackle just about anything life might throw their way. We are lucky to have her in our lives.Judi S. - San Diego, CA
Catherine is a kind, compassionate coach who is dedicated to inspiring and supporting her students. She is unique. She not only loves them, she seems to delight in what they have to offer. Catherine genuinely cares and is passionate for her kids – she is deeply invested in her students and their well-being and she always goes the extra mile for them!Colleen D. - Toronto
Catherine: 1. She’s fun. 2. She makes everything easy for you when it seems hard. 3. We always get through it together. 4. She’s always in my corner. 5. She always has a big smile. 6. She can be serious too, but she is still fun …even when she is serious.Sam D., 9 yrs old - Toronto
Although I am an active parent in my daughter’s life, I have found Catherine’s coaching strategies a wonderful support for my daughter. It is good for children to have a safe place in their life where they can share their thoughts, feelings and concerns. Catherine has created that space and the results have been very positive. The atmosphere created by Catherine through her sessions is positive, fun and focused on what is possible. Her approach resonates with children and the trust relationship developed with my daughter has created very meaningful results.Parent - Toronto
Catherine brings a joy to what she does that allows our daughter to learn about herself in an environment that is not just comfortable, but fun as well. Samantha would be the first person to say that she would love to spend more time with Catherine if she could. What more could I ask for!!!!!Robert D. - Toronto
