"As a student of Catherine's, I feel confident in my ability to provide shadow retrieval sessions with clients. Catherine is a fantastic teacher who really connects with her students. I knew that when struggles came up during the class that Catherine would show up for me in a way that made me feel safe to be vulnerable - which historically has not been easy for me, but because of Catherine's support has helped me become more comfortable with my vulnerability." - Kyra, 2019 program graduate
Bring the Power of Shadow Retrieval to Your Practice.
If you've personally experienced the profound impact of shadow retrieval, I'm sure you've thought about how to share it with others. Due to popular demand, I created this program just for you! I'm incredibly proud to present this labor of love- my professional certification program.
This program is intimate and very intensive. It consists of 12 one-on-one meetings, either in-person in my Shoreline office or online via Zoom, plus two 75-minute shadow retrieval sessions to support your own personal healing journey.
You will work with the 45-page program manual to complete weekly assignments that take you to the deepest parts of yourself as a practitioner, and give you the theoretical and practical skills to practice shadow retrieval in a contemporary trauma-informed, somatically-based, and culturally-competent style.
You will be facilitating two full 60-minute practice shadow retrieval sessions with actual clients, one voice recorded, and one video recorded, that I will thoroughly evaluate based on fully transparent written criteria. These are our "midterm" and "final," if you will. (I used to be a college professor, after all.)
If you have remaining questions or would like to talk more about the specifics of the program, please schedule a free 20 minute consultation call with me.
