Hello! My name is Cathleen Dougherty.  For the past twenty-plus years, I have worked as both an elementary and intermediate school counselor.  During this time, I have had the opportunity to work with students through classroom lessons, support groups, individual counseling, and teaching/supervising peer mediators/leaders.  

Although a Philadelphia suburban native, my career actually started in beautiful southern California.  During my twelve years there, I spent two years at the elementary level and ten years working at the intermediate level. When I made the decision to return to my roots, I was thrilled to secure a counseling position in Springfield Township School District. For the past ten plus years, I have the privilege to serve children as a school counselor at both Enfield and Erdenheim schools.

My hobbies include traveling, photography, coaching, spending time with family and delivering random acts of kindness to those who can give nothing in return.

My greatest gift is my daughter Ryleigh. She inspires me daily to be the best mother, counselor, friend, family member, and leader. 

I look forward to working with your children and helping them discover their sense of humor, celebrate their uniqueness and develop their leadership potential.
