My passion is to help us create lifestyles of connection and belonging. I love to write and speak to small groups of people to inspire us to create the relationships that make life amazing. As a coach and consultant, I listen to where you're at, and together we use CLICK to create an honest, organic path towards your goals. (Pre-packaged trainings + fancy curriculums...don't work, in my experience.)
I created CLICK™, "The Everybody Connection Method," through 20 years of study and 10,000+ conversations in the trenches of LA neighborhoods being friends with real people from every walk of life. Our social needs are universal, but how we meet them is personal and specific.
WHY DO I DO THIS?
Well, in order to survive chronic loneliness...and because meaningful connection is the #1 predictor of wellbeing and success at home, work, school and play. As a global society in an age of disconnection, we simply must learn to connect meaningfully across sectors and differences in order to thrive. COVID has liquified our social landscape + heightened our need for creativity in holding on to each other for dear life and pioneering a new relational world together.
Are you an individual wanting to invest in your relational life? Or a leader looking to create a culture of belonging professionally? I'd love to contextualize CLICK with you. We are wired to meaningfully connect, this is all doable + it can be fun.
Things are hard for everyone right now, you are not alone. 85% of students are being negatively impacted by the isolation of covid. But so much meaningful connection is possible even remotely. Together we'll create a simple, personalized path for you to get connected and feeling hopeful and empowered to write the next chapter of your social story.
Knowing how to support your adult child right now is complex + emotional. More parents reach out to me asking for support for their struggling college kids than any other group. The truth is, parents need support right now, too. In personalized coaching sessions, I'll support you as you support your child, and together we'll find the resources, experiences + next steps that make sense for you both.
Maybe you've relocated, switched jobs, recently divorced, become a new parent or have had your professional and friendship circles significantly change due to covid. We can slow down and figure out where you're at and what you really want and need right now in this new season of change. What do you want to let go of, what do you want to hold onto? Let's chart a path together.
"Cat has an uncanny ability to connect with systems in a way that humanizes them."
- Sam C., Executive Director, Level Ground
"What Cat is doing here can serve as the basis for renewed democracy."
- Jim B., Senior Associate Dean, USC
"Cat's understanding of people and systems runs deep. Beyond this, she brings to her work a faith in humanity and a commitment to fun, workable solutions that make her a joy to work with. She helped me -- a solitary writer, emphasis on solitary -- launch a successful workshop program. Nobody but Cat could make the work of drawing writers out of themselves so fun and so effortless."
- Ellie R., Writer, Founder, Write & Hike
"I've learned from Cat that community is synonymous with breathing. She has also attended several of my retreats, helping with ideas to create a magical experience out of the weekends. Cat not only has brilliant ideas, but she is a delight to be around."
