The truth is…we are all a little broken.

The gift is…we can all become whole again.



I am a survivor of long-term childhood sexual abuse. After pulling together the pieces of my own brokenness, I discovered my purpose. As an award winning author, coach, and speaker, I am passionate about guiding others that have experienced setbacks, traumas, or brokenness, rejuvenate to wholeness, discover their purpose, and empower their potential.



I am passionate about empowering you to confidence, joy, purpose, and fulfillment.

You can become whole again. 

You can become Kintsugi!


In Broken to Beautifully Whole, I demonstrate six compelling attributes to

initiate healing from your hurts while reducing chances for depression, anxiety,

or PTSD, and create a life filled with value, purpose, and happiness. As an advocate warrior, I identify practical actions along with the uncomfortable conversations that every single person can take to reduce vulnerabilities, empower our children, and defeat sexual abuse statistics.

“Author Cathy Studer’s story begins with the trauma of years of sexual abuse by her step-father, but it doesn’t end there. Step by step, she takes the reader through attributes that healed her, that are applicable not just to abuse survivors, but to anyone dealing with challenges who wants to move toward healing and wholeness. From encouragement to applying gratitude in your life (because finding things to be grateful for increases our happiness), to learning self-compassion rather than self-criticism, to forgiving in order to establish your own worth and joy, she offers practical advice and encouragement. “You have the choice to live with joy and purpose. You have the choice to not let your tragedy or trauma define you.” Wise words and advice from a survivor with not just a compelling story, but a voice for strength and hope.”

Is it possible to fully become whole again after brokenness?

Can you reduce chances of depression or anxiety after trauma?



I would love to share my message of how it is truly possible to become whole again after whatever hurt, traumatized, or broke us and find happiness and self-worth by applying six compelling attributes. When the six attributes are fully applied and established as habits, stress lessens along with the anxiety and depression. Then you can build more resilience, find your purpose, and fulfillment. Becoming whole again is possible. 

We also dive into actionable steps that every single person can take to defeat the childhood sexual abuse statistics and empower our children. Every child deserves support, love, and protection.


How do we adapt attributes into our life to rebuild confidence, find more joy, develop our best potentials, and actually become Kintsugi?

I would love to share how to adapt the six compelling attributes into our lives as habits that are in Broken to Beautifully Whole. These are the attributes I used in my own healing pilgrimage to restore my own wholeness. In my training workshops, we dive deep into the traits along with every participant creating there own piece of Kintsugi.  

Participants walk away with meaning, purpose, the ability to empower themselves to a healthier mindset, and a really cool piece of Kintsugi.
