Hello, my name is Catherine Thorington. I am the new intern here at Christian Counseling of Mid Michigan. I am working on my Master’s in Professional Counseling from Spring Arbor University. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Liberty University in Psychology and Christian Counseling. During the last four years, I worked as a substitute teacher while attending SAU. Before going back to college in my 40’s, I was a homemaker and military wife. Bill and I have been married for almost 33 years. We have three children, one daughter age 26, and two sons, ages 23 and 17. Our oldest son followed in my husband’s footsteps and is currently serving in the Navy. After my husband retired from the Navy, we moved back to our hometown of Gladwin. We attend Emmanuel Baptist Church in Gladwin where I am active in the children’s ministry teaching Jesus Kidz, and helping with various activities. I am a member of the ACA and the AACC. My passion is families, helping them to heal, and be whole. I would like to work with all age groups of people. In my spare time I enjoy DIY projects such as chalk painting wood furniture, and repurposing items. I also attempt to herb, and flower garden, enjoy crafting, and traveling with my family.
