Catherine is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, certified Positive Discipline Educator with training in counseling gifted children and training in Parent Management techniques from The Yale Parent Center.  She is the author of “Parenting Young Gifted Children What to Expect when you Have the Unexpected,” has provided parent support, workshops, and trainings through local and national gifted organizations since 2009, and offers counseling and consultations online and in-person through her business, Gruener Consulting and the Encouragement Parenting Division.

The techniques that I have learned, and the research and training on Giftedness gave me the tools to create more loving, more fulfilling, more connected relationships with everyone in my home. I’ve perfected the tools and techniques with my clients over the last 9 years and am offering what I know to you through Encouragement Parenting Trainings.
