“Kelsey was so amazing with Asher (4 months old). We had a bit of a blow out before the appointment which made us a little late and I did call to let her know, but she was understanding of the situation and assured me that it was fine. Carli also came by and talked a bit with us. Both ladies were friendly and made me and my son feel at ease. Love love love them!” May 3, 2018
“Carli Barrios’ Dementia Workshop at Catalyst Therapies was one of the best classes I have had the pleasure to attend. Her classes were very informative and taught from the perspective of compassion and respect for both the caregiver and the person(s) living with and suffering from Alzheimer’s & Dementia. Learning how the brain changes and understanding why a person with Dementia displays certain behaviors has helped me personally better assist and communicate with my family member that suffers from this disease. I would recommend Carli’s class to everyone.” August 25, 2018
We have nothing but praise for Catalyst services delivered through your five-star practitioner Carli Barrios from (was it?) 2019 through early 2022. It's hard to wade through entry portals for psychological therapy in Bellingham, but Carli, once found, proved to be not just accessible and reliable in what she did but very helpful in charting Judy's way toward other service providers beyond her own field, and we're now pointed toward gerontology specialists. Judy always felt she was in skilled, communicative and sympathetic hands, and that Carli knew how to make her feel "comfortable" along a not so easy path. We're grateful for her help and wish her well along her own future paths.

"Being able to work with Carli at Catalyst Therapies has been transformative to my life. Being transgender, I had trouble finding my true voice. I worked with Carli over several months to perfect a feminine voice, and what we have crafted together is more than I could have ever done on my own, even as a voice actor. I use this voice in my every day life, and in videos online which tell my story and advocate for transgender rights through explanation, understanding and empathy. And I am overwhelmed by the compliments I get for it!"
"3 years ago I walked into Catalyst terrified, unsure, and overwhelmed with what was ahead. My 3.5yr old son was nearly non-verbal, my 1.5yr old daughter was a chatterbox and I was pregnant. My son and I shared a frustration with his communication and desperate for some assistance during summer break, I reached out to Catalyst. They were new and excited to embark on their journey, but they were also reassuring, knowledgeable, and gave me hope. They have worked through every step of my son's speech disorder with me and have empowered me in the process. Once my baby was born, I watched him closely for any signs I dismissed with my first, and the staff at Catalyst was eager to support me and those concerns any way they could.
3 years later I have a first grader who tells the most amazing stories, learning to read and has an excitement for school I feared he would never get. I have a 3 year old who looks forward to his visits with Catalyst and has emerging speech skills weekly. He loves to tell me stories, even through his struggles, and we owe it all to Catalyst.
They not only focus on the therapy and the skills, but they are amazing people who genuinely want to help their patients and families any way they can. I can honestly say that nearly all my fears and horrors I had imagined my future with 2 CAS [Childhood Apraxia of Speech] boys would be are gone because they've empowered my boys and I. They have given us the tools we need to navigate this and are there whenever for whatever I need. I will be forever thankful for the amazing staff at Catalyst and I know they will continue to be beacons of hope and support to everyone they meet."
