Dr. Cat SaundersBackground

Since 1985, I've maintained a private practice as a counselor and consultant in Seattle, Washington. I work in person or by phone with individuals, couples, families, groups, and small businesses.

Since the early 1970s, I have studied a wide array of conventional and alternative therapeutic methods, body work and breathing techniques, cross-cultural spiritual disciplines, and creative healing modalities.

My educational background includes a three-part Bachelor's Degree in Design/Graphics/Writing (1978), a Master's Degree in Psychology (1984), and a Ph.D. in Psychology (1993). My doctoral research focused on the "missing link" related to eating disorders and functional neurology.

In June 2000, my first book, Dr. Cat's Helping Handbook, was published, and I've written more than 200 published articles and interviews.

From a series of 1300 daily drawings completed in 1983-1987, I created a deck of healing cards that was published in June 2007 called "Shadow and Light: Images of Change and Transformation for Women in Recovery."

I've been interviewed on radio and television regarding my counseling practice, my work with anger, and my series of articles on death.
