 LA Time's Op-Ed

Welcome, Friends!

My passion is to help us find our way back home to each other. I'd love to support you any way I can.

I created CLICK™, "The Everybody Connection Method," through 20 years of study and 10,000+ conversations in the trenches of LA neighborhoods.


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.

Whether you're an individual, community organizer or leader in the academic, civic, private or arts-media sectors, I'd love to chart a  path with you from the inside-out of your unique context. When relationships are our bottom line, our common goals can be realized. We are wired to connect. And this can be fun.

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."

"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."

- Jennifer D., Founder, Chapter One Workshop



"Cat has the unique ability to join high level leaders, oftentimes set in a blind spot of their own reductionism, and expand their ability to not only lead others but to love others better."

- Nick W., Founder & CEO, Cyclical Inc.
