Depression is a topic we don't want to talk about but you probably know someone who suffers from it. I take an honest look at it both from the perspective of those who suffer from it and those who don't. I've walked this journey and have stories to tell. I will provide knowledge, insight and hope.
“We recently worked with Cathy to present to our employees at our employee professional development day. Employees had the opportunity to choose their sessions. Cathy’s topic was very popular and well attended! Her sessions received among the highest ratings in the feedback surveys as being relevant, useful, and inspirational. I'm so happy to have met Cathy and thankful to her for sharing her important message with us.”

"Cathy Brennan took a thoughtful and personal approach to speaking to the artist community about their health and wellness. She provided simple steps to set goals and start making real changes. Because she allowed herself to speak from a place of vulnerability, participants could relate to her struggles and left feeling challenged and empowered to take control of their own health."
Noelle Lawton, Executive Director Twin Rivers Council for the Arts
"Cathy Brennan presented to the Mankato Downtown Kiwanis Club in September 2016. Cathy shares a personal story of her pathway to health that will engage the audience and challenge them to take proactive action. Her unique perspective on creating and maintaining a well-balanced life was certainly inspiring. She is well prepared, thoughtful, and excited to share her message. I am confident you will also be grateful to hear Cathy’s message at your next event."

"I participated in several small groups led by Cathy Brennan. I found being in the group to be very meaningful and it fostered personal growth and new relationships. Through Cathy’s facilitation skills and style, I experienced a positive, safe and trusting environment. Cathy clearly encouraged group members to listen and support each other. Cathy’s gentle leadership style was refreshing. She didn’t dominate group sharing, but shared her wisdom and asked questions at appropriate times. Cathy communicated respect and genuine compassion for myself and other group members. Through Cathy’s facilitation skills and gentle style, I experienced a warm and stimulating group environment that allowed me to grow as an individual and develop meaningful connections with other women."
