I’m Glad You’re Here

California and Pennsylvania Tele-Heath Services

If you’re visiting my website, you’re thinking about whether things in your life really need to be as hard as they are. Perhaps you aren’t sleeping well. Maybe your relationships are suffering. You might be tired of living a life of filled with anxiety. Or maybe you just want someone to talk through some things with.

You are looking for a therapist who will listen and interact with you. Someone who can be supportive and help you find solutions to your problems. Someone who will help you live a life that is different than it is today.

I am that therapist. I won’t just sit quietly and nod, I will work with you to make things better. I will partner with you to work on the things you want to change. We don’t have to talk about your childhood (unless you want to) we can talk about what is happening in your life right now. I want you to be able to laugh in session along with talking about the tough stuff.

If you are ready to make changes then contact me today to discuss how I might best help you. In order to best fit your needs I have moved to a tele-health only model. I am also currently focused on providing EMDR Intensives and can assist people that currently reside in both PA and CA. 

Here I am talking about EMDR Intensives

Meet Cathy

Cathy Hanville, LCSW

I feel like I am extraordinarily lucky to do this work. I spend my days helping people move past their anxiety. I have always loved hearing people’s stories. People that work with me love that I am interactive and have a good sense of humor. I believe there should also be a lot of laughter in the therapy room. Give me a call or email today to see if we be a good match to work together.

Anxiety

Anxiety is what I do the most. My goal is to help every client live a calmer life. Read more here.

EMDR

I use EMDR with many of my clients. I have found EMDR has helped many people get unstuck from patterns and thoughts that they had struggled with for years. I currently focus on EMDR Intensives. 

This allows me to help more people that need trauma therapy in this time where it is so difficult to find a therapist.

Gender

Many people I work with identify as transgender or non-binary. However you identify I am here to help you work through the process or work through whatever other struggles you have. For more information on my work with gender identity click here.

The LGBTQ+ Community Under Attack

I would have liked to write a post about gratitude for Thanksgiving. Or write one on any other topic other than this one. However, I cannot let the horror of what just happened at Club Q a few days ago. On the eve of the Transgender Day of Remembrance, another [...]

Managing the Rage-Be The Person You Want to Be

Like many of you, I have struggled with rage since 2016. It has gotten worse for me as I watch locally and around the country as laws are being passed to erase LGBTQ+ people. In addition, there are continued injustices against Blacks and other POC. I see the harm happening [...]

Leaving the Bay Area Bubble for Pennsylvania

By |October 7th, 2022|Categories: LGBT, Thoughts From A Psychotherapist|0 Comments

I was born and raised in NJ. In the 90's I moved to San Francisco. In the 90's it was a very different time for LGBTQ+ people. On the East Coast, you needed to be closeted in most places. The word transgender was never spoken and non-binary was not a [...]

EMDR Intensives for the San Francisco Bay Area

By |August 11th, 2022|Categories: emdr, Thoughts From A Psychotherapist|0 Comments

I recently started my EMDR intensive program. EMDR Intensives are great for those stuck on some issue or memory. You can get immediate help without making a long commitment to therapy. When I started this program I got some immediate feedback about cost and time. As a result, I [...]
