I am licensed in Illinois and Missouri with 6 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with managing symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression; improving motivation, self-esteem, and self-confidence; exploring sexual orientation and gender identity & coping with life changes. I am also comfortable assisting individuals facing challenges presented by adjustment issues, depression, grief, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma (PTSD), body dysmorphia and gender dysphoria, and other long-standing mental health concerns.
My counseling style is pretty laid back. As, I feel this helps make the sessions feel less clinical. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles. I'm here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now, and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgment. You have taken the first and most important step by reaching out for help.
I'm really looking forward to working with you!

Caitie is awesome. She is laid back and always responds within 12-24 hours. I can message her at any time of day, it helps so much to know that I have someone that has my back whenever I need the extra support.
