Life is hard and you just need someone you can turn to during your time of stress. You may feel overwhelmed and alone, or experiencing anxiety or depressive symptoms. You may simply want someone to hear you, connect with you, believe in you and support you while you explore your true self to find balance and peace. As a parent, you may be concerned about what your child or teen is going through, and need additional support to help your child behave better and feel better. Kaitlyn is passionate about helping you discover your healing in the midst of the struggle, while being heard and supported.

Visiting with a counselor can be a life changing experience. I work with clients from early childhood through all phases of adulthood. Everyone has a unique story, and I value the personal experiences, hopes, and dreams of all my clients. Partnering during a trusting counseling relationship can be one of the best ways to reach your goals and create lasting, positive change in your life. The relationship between counselor and client can create a vessel or space in which we can unpack and sort through your concerns with care, compassion, and confidentiality.

I approach counseling from a person-centered, trauma informed, play rich and strengths based approach, from a family systems lens.
The relationship you and your child has with their counselor is the true measure of how helpful the counseling experience will be. I value developing a warm, positive, supportive and empathic environment for your family to overcome any challenge that you are facing. In our experience together, you will find healing and growth, and recognize your own strengths, and how they help you and your child work toward building a more positive and rewarding future. Both in your individual lives, and collectively within the family.

I believe identity is a critical part of self-understanding and healing. For this reason, I enjoy working with folks who are looking to explore their identities which might include sexuality, gender, race, religion, physical and mental ability, and roles in society. I am cognizant that our identities shape our personal and lived experiences in the world, and this continually impacts how and what we need to heal. I approach therapy from a non-religious standpoint, but have a deep interest in how religion impacts people, including ways that it can act as a source of trauma, while also acknowledging that it can be a source of support.

I enjoy working with all my clients, however, I have specific training working with troubled youth. The world is hard to navigate as adults and can be even harder as a young adult, teen, or adolescent. In my experience depression and anxiety are secondary to the trauma caused by unresolved issues. These issues affect both children and adults. This can often express in opposition to rules, defiance, self harming, alcohol and drug use. I can help. I understand what its like to feel misunderstood in a world filled with overwhelming decisions.
