Hi, I’m Catalina.

Catalina Lawsin

Hi, I’m Catalina.

I know that life isn’t fair or easy.

I know what it’s like to feel like giving up.

I know how hard it is to push forward in your life and CHOOSE a different path.

I believe that relationships make life worth living 

Trained as a Clinical Health Psychologist I’ve spent the last 20 years addressing sex, relationships and health as a professor, clinician and researcher in the US and abroad.   I’ve spent most of my career working in cancer.  Working with individuals and families impacted by cancer informs my lens.  At the heart of all my work, relationships and all 

My approach integrates cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness and existential techniques which I tailor to your strengths and worldview.  My work is holistic, building on trainings and my own practice of meditation, tantra, yoga all around the world.

We don’t live in a bubble, so I’ll work with you and your problems in the context of the culture, systems and norms you live and operate in.

I’m direct, but not at all judgey. I’m action-oriented and don’t just sit and listen.  My goal for you is to leave our relationship integrated so you can LIVE FULLY.

Can Sex REALLY Save Your Life?

Can Sex REALLY Save Your Life?

In this episode we’ll explore my proposition that sex should be a target for improving overall quality of life and health. I’ll explore how sexual changes are a side effect to every, and I mean every, life stressor from cancer, work stress to depression and anxiety. I’ll also talk about the sexual benefits of sex for your health and relationships. Together, I propose we make SEX our target. What would it be like if you woke up each day and focused on your sexuality? How would that shift your focus and self-care throughout the day?
