About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor as well as a licensed marriage and family therapist. I have experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I've most commonly worked with those who struggle with bipolar disorder (type 1 and 2), personality disorders (borderline, narcissistic, etc), major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, life transitions, and bereavement. I have come across a significant number of clients who identify with the Christian faith and use prayer as a motivating factor towards change, acceptance, and support. This is a topic close to my heart as I am a practicing Christian myself. My therapy style mixes cognitive behavioral therapy (recognizing, challenging, and changing unhelpful thoughts to influence mood and behavior), dialectical behavioral therapy (distress tolerance skills, mindfulness), and Rogerian (empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard). I am well versed in other forms of therapy as well but my main belief is that you are the expert of your life and my role is to assist by tailoring the therapy session to what you need from it.

Reviews

Written by K.A. on Nov 15, 2021 after therapy with Caitlin for 2 weeks

Caitlin has helped me so much. She is very understanding, and offers wonderful counsel on even the hardest subjects. I don’t feel judged or criticized, just lifted and encouraged. I have been encouraged to do the things I’ve been too scared to do, but needed to deal with and address. Caitlin has encouraged and counseled me with Godly advice and wisdom. I was having a difficult time choosing a counselor that I felt fit me, and I felt God led me straight to Caitlin. You will feel taken care of and heard!
