The truth is ... we are all a little broken.
The gift is ... we ALL can become whole again

Emotional Intelligence for Empowerment & Healing

Hey There!

I'm Cathy Studer

And if you landed on my home page, you’re probably someone in search of relief.

I share the steps I followed to move through the pain of carrying shame, having low self-worth, and humiliation after suffering six years of childhood sexual abuse.

It is possible to become stronger and more beautiful after brokenness.


“Cathy shared her empowering message of hope and healing with our Women’s Leadership Network and Delaware County Against Human Trafficking Coalition. Her presentation was engaging, provoking, and very insightful. I am so grateful Cathy steps forward with courage to share her story with the intent of helping others heal from their own hurts, trauma, or brokenness,”
