About Our Staff

My name is Cathi Jo Heare and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern and serve as Riverside’s Counseling Coordinator.  I am married to Pastor Scott Heare, 22 years now, and have four beautiful children ranging in ages from 7-16 years.  While family is my priority, I have been involved in helping ministries like Stephen Ministry and healing prayer for over a decade.    

I utilize clinical counseling skills and techniques in therapy sessions with individuals, couples and families.  My heart has always been in working with women and issues specific to women, however I also enjoy and am effective in counseling couples and adolescents.  Premarital counseling is also something I am passionate about because of the solid foundation it can provide couples starting out in marriage.

My heart’s desire is to empower others as they grow into the person God has created them to be.  This might include overcoming trauma, challenging irrational thinking or coming to a place of self-acceptance.  My faith is at the center of my work as I continuously seek God’s wisdom and discernment in my life and in caring for my clients.

I graduated from the University of Texas in Austin in 1994 with a Bachelor of Journalism and earned a Masters of Arts in Counseling from Wayland Baptist University in 2015.
