Catherine is an experienced therapist who places great value on listening to her patients and appreciates the unique perspective each person brings to the therapeutic process. She enjoys working with adolescents and adults alike, and finds the greatest satisfaction when she witnesses her patients gaining the knowledge and courage to move beyond their perceived limitations. She enjoys working in a team environment, and values the dialogue and exchange of knowledge among physical therapists and physical therapy assistants.
Catherine has worked at Cooley Dickinson Rehabilitation Services’ Amherst/Hadley clinic from 2000-2008, and 2013-2021, with a gap in between to further her education. She now works at the South Deerfield clinic. Catherine played soccer for the University of Connecticut and understands the emotional/physical challenges of becoming an “ex-athlete,” having gone through a life-changing sports injury herself. Currently she resides in Conway and enjoys playing guitar, being active outdoors and taking in the beauty and culture of the Connecticut River Valley.
