"We can fully see ourselves in a new light when we feel truly seen by another."
I am dedicated to creating a safe environment in which clients feel understood, respected, and free to explore their emotions. By feeling unconditional warmth and care, clients are able to discover and experience themselves in new ways, which creates lasting acceptance.
Caitlen’s personal philosophy is to develop a strong therapeutic relationship that is firmly based on openness and acceptance. She brings a unique perspective on dealing with client’s difficulties through multiple lenses, while keeping a dedicated and strength-based approach for all clients.
