Marriage, Family Therapist
Catherine Rowe grew up in Maryland as one of five children.
Her emotionally formative years on the east coast were deeply affected by the trauma of her father’s six military deployments, which turned her heart toward systems-thinking and counseling at a young age.
Since then, she has developed a profound understanding of the impact of trauma, depression, anxiety, and other mental health struggles on individuals and their relational systems.
Catherine received her undergraduate training in family studies and psychology. She worked as a primary research assistant for various couples’ studies under her mentoring professors at BYU.
She also had the opportunity to share her robust experience with divorce, addiction, and trauma as a guest lecturer and content consultant for BYU’s Department of Family Life.
After graduation, she spent a year working in residential treatment for young adults, where she developed a reverence for group therapy and the shared experience of trauma healing.
She is presently receiving her graduate training at Utah Valley University in its first cohort of Marriage and Family therapists.
