Since updating to macOS Catalina, Lightroom Classic can no longer find my photos when I am in the Develop tab. I know there are issues with compatibility right now, but I'm wondering if there's a workaround for this?

On your MAC, bring up system preferences, select security and privacy , select the privacy tab, scroll down to Files  and Folders, check LRC for rights.

Might have some of that workflow wrong

Only thing missing is: If Lightroom Classic is NOT in the right pane, just drag it in from your Applications folder. THEN make sure all is clicked on.
