About Catherine Gruener:

As a psychotherapist, psychometrician and researcher who earned a masters degree in Neuropsychology in the early 90s before Neuropsychology became cool, Catherine has dedicated her life to understanding the mind-body-spirit connection, creation, and change process. This desire, in pursuit of the soul, through study of the brain-behavior models developed from tragedy. In high school, her best friend’s brother was hit by a car, went into a coma, and though regained awareness and use of his body, his personality never returned. She witnessed what tragedy does to an individual, their family, and the far-reaching ripples across friends and communities. Once she started working in the field of neuropsychology, more questions arose.

A bit of a “life-long learner” fanatic in pursuit of proving that life is more than stimulus and response, Catherine ended up “doing it all” in the mental health field over the last 3 decades, from teaching and research, to clinical practice and social advocacy. She has taught numerous courses from introductory college classes to workshops on effective parent techniques, brain-behavior approaches, and the social and emotional issues of gifted children, with private, state, and national institutions. Her research initiatives span community wide Drug and Alcohol Needs Assessment in conjunction with Johns Hopkins University, early detection of Alzheimer’s disease through Loyola University Medical Center, to supporting PTSD research initiatives for veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom at the Veterans Administration. She has provided a range of clinical assessments and direct counseling services in inpatient, outpatient, and residential facilities across the U.S and on the island of Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands. She earned a second master’s degree from Adler University in Clinical Counseling, became a certified Positive Discipline Educator, was trained in Parent Management Techniques from the Yale Parent Center, then trained in counseling gifted people through the Illinois Association for Gifted Children, and has numerous professional acronyms behind her name, board position titles, and service lines, supporting the theory that she may be addicted to learning and continues to pursue understanding the mind-body-soul miracle.

Intensity, asynchrony, sensitivity, and the neuro-atypical communities called to her. Through Gruener Consulting, Catherine works with neuro-atypical children, families, and adults, assessing their needs and lifestyle approach, providing them with skill-based training, motivation, neurobehavioral mind-body work, counseling and depth psychotherapy. She sees her work as supporting individuals in returning to their core, re-connecting with their soul purpose, re-claiming their lives, removing the blocks, and does this through encouraging, educating, counseling and teaching, with enthusiasm, joy, and agape love.

Though Gruener Consulting only began operating in 2012, Catherine has been recognized worldwide for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the mental wellness profession. She has been inducted into Elite American Educators, Elite Women Worldwide, with inclusion of her biography in the 2017 Marquis Who’s Who.  She was honored as a lifetime member and “Outstanding Professional of the Year” by Cambridge Who’s Who, has been elected as a “Top Female Executive” three times since 2012, had a chapter dedicated to her in the “Top 101 Industry Expert publication,” and received recognition through Worldwide for a Lifetime Achievement.  In 2016 she was honored for her lifetime achievement as a professional, inducted as an honored Lifetime member of the International Association of Top Professionals and was named “Visionary of the Year” in 2017.
