Catherine Goldhouse

I received my bachelor’s degree from Brown University and my master’s degree from Boston College. I combine the applicability of cognitive behavioral therapy with the depth of psychodynamic therapy to provide individuals and couples a safe, supportive space in which they can identify and understand the unhealthy patterns in their lives and explore new ways of thinking, feeling, and engaging with the world. I acquired the bulk of my clinical training at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School’s largest psychiatric affiliate, on an inpatient unit in the division of Anxiety and Mood Disorders. I also trained at the OCD Institute, the nation’s first and foremost treatment center for OCD. Before becoming a psychotherapist I owned a wellness company in which I helped people heal from destructive relationships with food and nourishment and instead learn to eat and live according to their own values. I am also a longtime student of the Enneagram and enjoy using it as a tool for self-knowledge and growth.
