I am a clinical social worker with 15 years of experience working in social work, counseling, and supportive positions. I have worked in New York City and Portland, Oregon so I have experience with people from a wide range of backgrounds. One of my main areas of specialty is parenting stress, specifically parenting when you have your own history of trauma that you are finding is starting to impact how you parent. I also have significant training in trauma and abuse, depression, anxiety, and chronic toxic stress. I have recently added in diet and weight loss counseling to my repertoire and it is another area of focus I enjoy.
My counseling style is casual and warm. Clients often tell me it doesn't "feel like therapy" until they notice that they are starting to make changes in their lives, feel validated, and start to think more about their patterns and behaviors. I use a lot of cognitive-behavioral techniques as well as interpersonal, client-centered therapy. The priority of treatment is to focus on your goals and we will work together as a team to identify them and find the best ways to work towards them.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and learning about your story!

Very lovely LGBT (and polyamory!) friendly counselor who has tons of resources, suggestions, and techniques for trauma, relationships, communication, and anxiety. I absolutely adore her!
In the short time that I have been working with Caitlin she really has helped me. I have gotten tools from her and she is very active in having work on my issues that I’ve been facing for a long while. I am definitely satisfied in the pairing that BetterHelp has provided me with. Caitlin is really helpful!
I really like her. She's patient and understanding. She's totally up to date with current issues and social media. She understands the problems that come with transnational identity. She's given me some very solid advice.
