Congratulations for making you a priority! I’m so happy to connect with you here.

Whether we have worked together or haven’t yet, I want to say thank you for being willing to show up for yourself, your organization, your family and your community by taking the steps necessary to be better, be more aware, and to shed what no longer serves you.

“Cate presented her 4-part “Ignite the Powerhouse in you series” with all of our combined staff from a total 8 of not-for-profit organizations. The timing was great since many of them were exhausted, overwhelmed and welcomed resilience strategies. Cate gave us some really important and valuable messages on how to bring out the best in ourselves.
It was a great added value when each person received Cate’s book, “The Powerhouse in You”.
Cate was a genuine pleasure to work with and went above and beyond what was needed. As a committee, we highly recommend Cate for any keynote, training or retreat you may be considering with her.”

– Sandie Hoskin, Lake Ridge Community Support Services

At the heart of why I wrote this book I wanted to provide a framework or guide if you will to remind leaders the power of whom they really are and how to support, nudge and provide a call too action on how to invest in their own well-being on a consistent basis. The powerful and relatable stories will help you explore how you get in your own way from your limiting beliefs, remind you what works, what doesn’t and how to customizes your resiliency plan of action to show up to be the best version of yourself.

As a recovered burned out leader, I wanted to unite all leaders who want to be more resilient, courageous and confident, so they make better decisions, own their power and experience more optimum health. It can get lonely at the top and overwhelm and the constant hustle has become normal resulting in more burned out leaders.

My book was inspired by the thousands of leaders that I have had the honour to work with.

If you want to take this powerful journey with us feel free to sign up for my monthly vlog and stay inspired, stay connected to yourself and each other and especially stay connected with the powerhouse in you.

Remember. You are a powerhouse.



Why Choose Cate?CAPS

As a former executive director of a non-profit organization, I know what it’s like to be a leader and understand the stresses that come with it.
With a background in behavioral sciences and 17 years of experience as a mental health counselor, I fully understand the habits and motivations that lead to over-commitment and burnout. I also understand the importance of trust and discretion. During my interactive workshops and retreats, I connect with individuals and quickly get to the heart of their issues.
I have a solution-based approach. I believe it’s not enough to simply identify a problem and its source. Leaders and teams need real strategies and techniques to overcome their internal obstacles and build a healthier workplace for themselves and others. Hence why I created my impactful and simplistic 4 rooms formula.
