Caitlin is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology at the University of Texas at Arlington. She received her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lamar University. Caitlin has lived all over North Texas, but currently resides in Chicago. She recently moved there and is enjoying exploring the city! Caitlin is fully licensed in the state of Texas and provides telehealth sessions.

Before Caitlin became a therapist, she worked in the public school system as a teacher from 2013-2022. She gained endless amounts of experience working with children, families, administrators, and the community. She decided to return to graduate school and work towards her Master’s degree in Counseling in 2018. She juggled graduate school and work for quite some time, which is not an easy task!

Caitlin began her counseling career at the Children’s Advocacy Center for North Texas where she provided therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. She later moved to a different therapist role at Bricolage Behavioral Health where she provided individual, family, and group therapy to those in an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and partial hospitalization program (PHP) setting. She has also spent time as an Assessor at UHS as well as being a therapist at Room For Change. These experiences have led to advanced skills in the area of individual, couples, family and group therapy.

Currently, Caitlin sees adolescents and adults. Caitlin is a trained EMDR therapist and utilizes evidence based interventions to include trauma focused CBT, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Her areas of focus include PTSD, anxiety disorders, depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts, self esteem, grief and loss, and general life transitions. Caitlin is a culturally competent therapist and works with clients of diverse backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, LGTBQ+ and socioeconomic status.

So what type of therapist is Caitlin? She is tough, but compassionate. She is funny, can be witty, but simultaneously very kind and caring. She works from a strengths perspective to empower clients as they move through their journey to be a better version of themselves. Caitlin believes choosing hope and change can feel overwhelming, and one of her goals as a clinician is to provide her clients with the guidance and tools to make those a reality.

In Caitlin’s free time, she enjoys going to new restaurants, exploring her new city, and doing yoga. Caitlin and her husband love taking their Great Dane to different dog parks around Chicago. She comes back to visit family and friends in Dallas often.
