About Cathy: "My co-host for many of the Thriving Now workshops, teleclasses, and courses is Cathy Vartuli, who is a scientist* skilled in the use of technology to analyze man-made structures (integrated circuits) down to the atomic level. To accomplish this feat she and her team carefully peel away layer after layer until they can shine a focused beam of energy upon the part of the circuit that may have a disruption or block or weakness.

How apt I find it that in her skilled use of EFT, she helps clients peel away layer after layer until they get to their previously hidden core issue. Then she softly yet directly focuses energy upon the issue and not only helps it to shift but also helps her clients gain insight in the process.

Cathy demonstrates the finest qualities of a coach... which includes being a student first - always learning and questioning- and a teacher second. Her intuitive and energetic gifts are well-developed, and I find that she consistently is able to reflect back to her clients (including me) deep truths about the state of our emotions and beliefs and the movement of energy in the physical body that are difficult to see on our own. I am very pleased to have her as one of the Thriving Now coaching co-creators." -- Rick Wilkes, Thriving Now, LLC

* Cathy has a PhD in Material Science and Engineering and a Masters of Sciences in Physics.

"With her gifts of compassion and insight, Cathy creates a safe place where feelings, memories and traumas can surface. Just the way she asks questions is an art form in itself —heartfelt questions, gentle in spirit, yet profound in their power to get to the core of issues. Cathy offers unconditional friendship and support and respects a client’s truth.  Her care and concern remind me of one the most touching examples of female friendship in the Bible: Naomi asking her daughter-in-law Ruth, “How do things stand with you, my daughter?” Cathy asks then listens with a patient, open heart.  During an inner-tapping session with Cathy, I feel energy shift. I reconnect with parts of my younger self, release trauma and learn to be my own best parent, mentor and friend." --Paula Graham

"Working with Cathy is always a joy. She is soft spoken, nurturing, intuitive, and incredibly intelligent. I love the way she works with the inner child and makes them feel safe, then brings them out the other side of their hurt, fear, and self-blame." -- Judy Whitcraft

"Working with Cathy has been a milestone along the road to a more loving, forgiving and enjoyable life. My one-on-one EFT sessions with her have been Amazing. She's the Sherlock Holmes of EFT Coaches...finding the core clues that have been effecting your life and helping you release them. I'm truly grateful." -- Dr Rick Neal

"I have worked with several EFT Practitioners, including a couple of the Masters, and it takes a lot to really impress me, yet I have never seen ANYTHING like the work Cathy does with inner-children!  It’s literally mind-boggling, both having her work on me and observing her work with others. She eloquently lasers into past trauma and facilitates major healing time and time again like it’s no big deal.  Before you even know what happened a huge energetic weight has been lifted and you feel so much lighter.  I don’t know how she does it but her sharp intuition, brilliantly honed tapping skills, compassionate spirit, and fierce dedication to doing her own work are some of the qualities that make Cathy and her application of EFT so extraordinary." --Joan, Washington State

"I've seen many beneficial changes in my life since I started tapping; my house is neater and less cluttered, and I'm much more relaxed all the time, and I handle unexpected news much more easily than I used to. 

The most visible change I've had has been the result of a private session I had with Cathy Vartuli. During a team call, I had asked for assistance with a surgery scar that had healed, but was still bothering me. Even though it had been 6 months since my surgery, the scar was still very itchy, tight, burning, and bright pink. The surgeon said it had healed properly, and that if the symptoms persisted, he could inject steroids directly into the site, which would eventually provide relief, but was a very painful procedure. Cathy asked a question about the scar, and I was surprised by the intensity of the emotions I felt regarding my surgery experience. When I tried to tap on the experience by myself, I was overwhelmed by the emotions, so I decided to have a private session to work through the issues.

During the session, we tapped on a variety of issues...the shock of the surgery, the emotional shock of being told I had skin cancer, the fact that I really did miss the pieces of skin that were taken, acknowledging that loss, the change to my appearance because of the surgery, the sorrow I felt over the possibility of not being around to see how my son turns out, some old, stored energies related to the deaths of my grandmother and neighbors...all sorts of things came up! As we tapped on the various issues that arose, I felt different forms of release taking place, with all of them providing greater and greater relief. I had 2 surgery sites; one on my leg and one on my neck...the one on my neck was the bothersome one. During our session, I felt a large release of energy come through the scar on my leg, and I also felt very bubbly and happy overall by the end of our time.

The next day, the scar on my neck went through some sort of shift...I had sharp stabbing pains, and about a half hour of extremely intense itching. I felt that the injury was sort of restructuring, tapped on it, and it did eventually subside.

The day after that, it seemed to me that the scar was starting to fade.

A week later, Cathy sent me a follow up email to see how I was doing. That same day, with no prompting, a friend of mine that I see a few times a week commented that the scar on my neck had practically disappeared. I had thought so, too, but wasn't sure if I was imagining it until someone else said the same thing. I had already experienced some wonderful gains through EFT, but this experience really stood out for me due to the very practical application, and the visible results.

Thanks so much to Cathy for the direct help, and to Rick Wilkes for starting Thriving Now. It's been a perfect fit for me." --Elizabeth

"Compassion. Intuition. Insightful Questions. These are three qualities that make Cathy an INCREDIBLY talented tapping coach.  Cathy has a wonderful gift of intuition and asks just the right questions to uncover the specific issues. Her warm and compassionate heart comes through with every tapping session, especially in the challenging and difficult emotional issues. She's very skilled at keeping the person on track, and gently directing them back to the issue at hand. 

With Cathy's extensive understanding and experience in tapping on the Inner Child, she brings a loving, caring, and very skilled intuitive approach. She was able to move me through many challenging issues with these techniques. While working with Cathy, it is very apparent that she is well-read and has done extensive research on numerous issues. She is able to see the big picture and piece issues together while offering a different insight and understanding.

I am extremely grateful to have the privilege of working with Cathy over the past two years. I would recommend her to anyone who is ready to take personal responsibility for their growth and well-being, and to anyone who seeks a kind, compassionate, and highly intuitive coach to assist them on their journey." --Karen Lebron

"Oh Cathy, let me say first that you are a Goddess. (Well, of course we all are, but you stand out as a goddess among goddesses.) I downloaded a buttload (technical term–and particularly appropriate here) of the Body Image calls to my iPod and have been listening to them and tapping along when I can, virtually tapping at other times. There is so much intuition, wisdom, and love there. I feel like I’ve processed about 10 years worth of therapy. Sometimes a specific scene or issue of my own will come up, and I’ll stop the iPod to tap on that and have had some great break-throughs.

Before I found ThrivingNow, I did a lot of surfing on different EFT sites and practitioners looking for a place that I thought would provide good support. What you and Rick are offering is so accessible, usable, and affordable. Oh yeah, and most importantly–effective. I am just blown away that for under $50/month I have access to so many resources and just how excellent those resources are. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful work." --Liz
