Hi, I'm Catherine.

As humans, we all experience our own "journeys" through life both literally and figuratively. One of my most life-changing journeys was the transition from a career in public relations into psychotherapy. Nearly six years later, it’s also the most rewarding path I’ve chosen yet.

Below is a snapshot of information about me, Catherine Egenes, LMFT, and my private psychotherapy practice. I hope you find pieces of what you need to know as you embark on a new chapter of your own personal journey.

Therapeutic Values & Approach

My therapeutic approach combines elements from the following theories and modalities: collaborative, attachment, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, experiential and general systems. By adhering to an integrative style, I am able to utilize evidence-based techniques while also considering the unique qualities and needs of my clients. I value autonomy and honesty with the belief that such principles are fundamental for a strong therapeutic alliance. I practice with the intention of sharing my perspective and expertise as a tool to help clients realize their own goals and path towards growth — however those are defined.

Professional Training & Experience

I graduated from the Mercer School of Medicine with a Masters of Family Therapy and hold a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Rhodes College. I completed a practicum internship with the Atlanta Center for Eating Disorders (ACE) in 2011 and continued working as a staff clinician for 4 years to receive specialized training in the treatment of eating and related disorders.

During my time as a contract therapist at Emory University’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) Center, I gained experience in working with students in their transition into young adulthood and the current day struggles of navigating college life. Helping clients who are in this life stage remains a passion of mine.

As part of my ethical duty and love for the field, I work to expand my knowledge and expertise through professional trainings and workshops. I recently completed the externship for Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy and attended a conference on Discernment Counseling, both of which have enhanced my work with people exploring issues within their romantic relationships.

In addition to the specialty areas noted above, I also work with individuals, couples and families seeking therapeutic services for anxiety, depression, co-dependency, grief/loss, personality issues, and spirituality concerns.

I have been a member of the American (AAMFT) and Georgia (GAMFT) Associations for Marriage and Family Therapy since 2010. In 2014, I was appointed as the PR Chair of the GAMFT Board and served a 2-year term in this role.

A Personal Note I live with my husband, daughter, and personality-filled pup in the Atlanta neighborhood of Morningside. When possible, I spend my time traveling to new destinations in an effort to push past my own comfort zone, learn about other cultures, and satisfy my needs of both losing and finding myself. When intown, I enjoy taking walks, frequenting new restaurants, and spending time with family and friends.

Most Important of All...

At the end of the day, I feel honored each and every time I sit with my clients in their pursuit towards a fulfilling life. For me, therapy is so much about a human to human experience. I welcome the chance to know you and hope to provide a warm, comfortable and non-judgmental environment for you to explore whatever issue might be present.
