Life’s Short. Live Fully

Is life not what you thought it’d be?


Are you asking yourself “how did I get here?”
“Is this really my life?”

Feeling overwhelmed and is everyday just getting
harder and harder?

Feeling overwhelmed, lost and confused?
Is everyday getting just getting harder and harder? 



Life presents challenges and in survival mode sometimes all we can do is react

Bit by bit, time goes on and these reactions become habits,
some effective, others unhealthy.

The result is that you shut down,
disconnect from the people who matter most,
causing your day to day or even your health to fall apart.

You’re left feeling overwhelmed, out of control, asking yourself is this what the rest of my life is going to be?

You’ve worked hard, harder than you ever imagined.

But you still feel stuck.

It’s time to live a life that you’re CHOOSING.

You deserve to LIVE FULLY.

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.
