Do you have any version of Premiere Elements 13 or only Photoshop Elements 13 which comes with Elements Organizer 13?
Let us look at the following for Elements Organizer 13....
1. Deletion of disabling the Elements Organizer 13 setting file which is named psa.prf. In Windows 7, 8, o 8.1 64 bit, it is found in the
Local Disk C
and in the Organizer Folder is the psa.prf file that you delete or disable by renaming it from psa.prf to psa.prfOLD.
2. If the above gains you successful entry into the Elements Organizer 13, then you can
a. create a new catalog
b. repair or optimize the current one
See Elements Organizer 13/File Menu/Manage Catalogs/Catalog Manager.
3. There are times that certain formats will bring the Elements Organizer down when you try to import those formats into
it. But, from what you wrote, your current problems do not sound media related.
3. At your earliest opportunity, please update Elements Organizer 13 to 13.1 using its Help Menu/Updates.
Please review and consider and then let us know the outcome.

Tried all of the above you've suggested. Finally just created a new catalog and moving photos over to the new catalog and it seems to be working so far. I'm able to go into the old catalog only by switching from the old catalog to the new and then back to the old, but it still crashes after a few minutes.
Thanks for the update.
Just want to make sure on one point.
At this time, the only time you get crashes is when you try to use the old catalog. The new catalog has not crashed on you when left as the current catalog? Is that the case?
If so, wonderful news.
If you have not already, you might want to watch for any association between the format of the Elements Organizer import and the Elements Organizer crashes if you should find that
the crashes are starting to happen in the new catalog. Hope not.
