Book Cathleen

My mission is to empower youth and those who engage with them to thrive by remaining conscious of their strengths and inner compass, joyful in their body and open to a full spectrum of possibilities.


Bringing together decades of parenting, educating as a special educator and facilitating as an Access Consciousness ® Facilitator, I enable the possibility of something far greater for youth of all ages. I deliver these tools through keynote speaking, smaller group interactive workshops, and follow through one on one when needed.

Offering simple, pragmatic tools so youth can:

  • release anxiety and stress to allow everyday happiness

  • cultivate inner sovereignty and confidence

  • use conscious choice to create the life they desire

  • connect and communicate with their bodies

Cathleen allows children and teens to see their own strengths and abilities.

Parent Tools for Fostering and Allowing Your Children to Stay Conscious in an Unconscious World

Kids come into the world with their own inner light and knowing. If that is fostered with giving them choices and living tools so that they can find their way without being too impacted by their culture, school learning, and their peers, they can keep directing their life based in their inner knowing.

This talk provides parents with pragmatic strategies for supporting their children to nurture their self knowing and conscious choices based on their desires.

School Supports for Youth to Thrive Among the "Herd"

Students come from diverse backgrounds with varying needs into a system that often requires them to conform and fit in.


This talk addresses how teachers can still nurture the individuality of each student and allow student choice when possible.

Also, I discuss exercises that can easily be done in a classroom to bring back ease of learning and body awareness.
