Connect with Caroline Ost
No matter where you've been or where you want to go, all of who you are is welcomed and celebrated here. I utilize a non-judgmental, trauma-informed approach where you can openly examine your mental health, your beliefs, your identities, and how your experiences and interactions with society affect your life. I particularly enjoy working with those who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community and clients in non-monogamous relationships; I am a sex-positive practitioner and am kink and poly-affirming. I also have significant experience working with clients who are navigating life/spirituality after experiencing religious trauma.
You are the expert on your life; it's my job to facilitate and support your ever-evolving relationship with yourself and your communities. I provide a space that is infused with humor and compassion so that you can feel safe to share your joys, fears, successes, and challenges as we navigate this messy world together.
You are deserving of care, kindness, and support, now and always. I look forward to supporting your journey as you seek to become the most authentic version of yourself!
