Hi there, I'm Cathy!

Hello, my name is Cathy Asciutto. I am a licensed psychologist with almost 30 years of experience. Although I have experience working with children, teens, couples, and families, I am currently limiting my practice to individual adults.

My approach

I generally work mostly from both a humanistic and cognitive behavioral approach. I find that who we are as individuals, and how we feel about ourselves is a critical components of how we are able to cope. How we think about things, events, others, ourselves, and what we do, shapes our experiences.

My focus

I typically work with people who feel anxious or stressed, and/or have problems with their moods, or relationships. I am comfortable treating people with generalized anxiety disorder, social phobia, panic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and bipolar disorders. Some of my clients also have ADHD or personality disorders.

My communication style

I believe it is extremely important to provide a supportive and therapeutic environment to assist my clients as they face and overcome life's challenges. My goal is to deeply understand my client's perspective, so I will both listen and ask questions. My communication style is pretty direct. I may provide education, and suggest strategies, tools or recommendations to assist clients on their journey.

My journey to mental healthcare

I became a therapist because I enjoy hearing people's stories, and seemed to have a natural ability to empathize. There is almost nothing as rewarding and humbling to me than witnessing someone grow or heal. I feel honored and privileged to be trusted with someone's most personal thoughts and to do this work.

My goals for you

I will ask why my client is coming to therapy and what they hope to achieve. Then we discuss strategies for how to reach those goals. Sometimes I will suggest a homework assignment. Everyone is a unique individual, and treatment is always tailored to each person.

My first session with you

In the first session, we go over confidentiality and its limits. I generally ask a lot of questions to clearly define the reason for therapy, symptoms, history of symptoms, life history, and treatment goals. By the end of the first session, I try to provide my client with a diagnosis and a broad sketch of how we may address their concerns, and how I might be helpful so that they can make a judgment about whether to proceed or not.
