Cathy Wild has spent more than thirty years developing innovative approaches to healing that integrate powerful body-centered techniques with the creative process. While expanding her private practice, Cathy became a popular speaker, workshop leader, and corporate consultant. She has facilitated women's groups, writing groups, and book groups; and has taught in the extended education program at Santa Rosa Junior College. As a pioneer in somatic counseling, the expressive arts, and the field of life coaching, Cathy was featured as a creativity expert on the PBS television series, In the Prime. Today, her life's work has deepened and evolved into Body-Centered Healing-a dynamic, experiential process that supports clients on a profound personal journey of transformation. When she isn't writing, you can find Cathy painting in the studio, puttering in the garden, or baking up a batch of cookies for her friends. Cathy lives in Northern California.
