Catt Stack, MA, LMHC, NCC

My life’s mission is to meaningfully contribute to the lives of others. Deciding to be a professional counselor means that everyday, I have the privilege of offering care during the most vulnerable moments of human existence. I seek to offer a safe refuge in which a person can experience emotional attunement, feel understood, and find healing. Both personally and professionally, I believe the quality of my relationships are the foundation for a life well-lived.  


I have worked in human services for over 20 years. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Iowa and National Certified Counselor. Because I believe in advocacy and social justice, I try to vary my association memberships. Currently, I am a member of the American Counseling Association and the American Mental Health Counseling Association. 

I tend to have a lot of hobbies so I can often be found tackling some sort of project. I also love learning so you'll usually find me with an article (or three) or a book to read when I have a minute. Right now, I am excited to be engaged in an intensive training course to become a certified ADHD Professional. I hope to learn skills to support neurodiverse individuals in flourishing.

My personal interests include reading, music, crocheting, sewing poorly, bike riding, gardening in hopes a few plants will survive, and spending time with my family and friends. My corgi (seen below) is our office therapy dog. Earl is a character and offers his own brand of comfort. He is in training as a therapy dog and often accompanies me to work. As you can see, he makes himself at home. He's not big on being called a dog but he's a good listener. People at the office enjoy his smile and kind greeting as they come in the door.
