Elmhurst, IL - Catherine is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, Certified Positive Discipline Educator and owner of Gruener Consulting and Encouragement Parenting.

“In the counseling division of my practice I utilize person-centered, evidence-based methods and Adlerian depth therapy which are remarkably effective,” says Catherine. “In my Encouraging Parenting division my evidence based strategy focuses on the Empowerment of parents through experiential trainings, workshops, seminars, and online classes.”

According to Catherine, people are born into the world with certain unique strengths but as we mature we lose ourselves in other people’s identities and whimsy taking us further away from who we are genuinely are meant to be.

Catherine helps parents remove blocks that have obstructed their way opening the door to their own gifts..

“Through parenting we help kids tap into their unique skills and capabilities that is distinctively theirs,” says Catherine.

Through her invaluable workshops, Catherine stresses the importance of encouraging kids to feel confident enough to be able to open up to their parents wholeheartedly, so they can actually help guide them through life’s journey. It’s about solving problems cohesively.

“Healthy relationships between parents and their children offer further opportunity to heal,” says Catherine. “When we are everything we need to be we are happy, healthy, and whole and that’s what I do with people.”
