About Cathy

Hi!  I’m Cathy Larsen, Licensed Professional Counselor of Mental Health.  I would be honored if you would choose me to be your counselor.  But how do you know if we are a good “fit?”  Well, I have a passion to help people learn, grow, and heal.  I have a client-centered holistic approach to therapy.  I will be non-judgmental and treat you with respect and compassion.  I have over twenty years of counseling experience in Western South Dakota communities.  We will work together to find the best approach for you.  I believe that “laughter is the best medicine,” and although this is not a counseling theory you will find in the textbooks, it is a part of my counseling approach.  I am also open to bringing faith-based concepts into therapy for those who request this.  I will respect wherever you are on your spiritual path.

“There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky. And you will ask, “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, What if you fly?”
—Erin Hanson

There is freedom waiting for you. Freedom from fears and self-limiting beliefs. Freedom from the fear of falling, of failing. We all get scared. We all make mistakes.  But I will be right there with you when you are ready to take a deep breath, make a leap of faith, and fly.
