Catherine Baker

Richardson

Catherine graduated with a Bachelors in Psychology and a Bachelors in Accounting from Houston Baptist University. She worked with Deloitte for a brief season before going on to obtain her Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Pepperdine University School of Law. After 10 years in the legal field, Catherine decided to pursue her true personal passion for counseling. She received her Masters in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University and now works in private practice with individuals, couples and families.

Catherine has a special heart for those feeling stuck in dealing with anxiety, perfectionism, trauma, co-dependency, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, identity issues and relationship challenges. Based on her own experiences, she is able to empathize with the struggles related to self-doubt and insecurity that so many face today. She finds much joy in living out her whole-hearted desire to encourage and equip others to overcome longstanding fears, harmful patterns and emotional pain. She believes awareness, acceptance and compassion are key components to experiencing full healing and freedom, and is humbled by the opportunity to help others find hope for positive change.

Catherine’s faith plays an integral role in her life and in her practice. She believes in the inherent dignity and value of humanity. While she does not impose her beliefs on clients, she recognizes the value and impact of spirituality on all people and works with clients of various spiritual backgrounds.
Catherine desires to help clients rest and reflect for the sake of finding new and fresh perspectives on how to live the most rewarding and fulfilling life possible

"May you slow down for a while, just for the sake of rest and reflection. And when you get up again, may you find new resolve to stand firmly on God's promises."
