Caitlin is a licensed professional counselor supervisor (LPC-S) and national board certified counselor (NCC) in the state of Oklahoma. Her goal as a provider is to create a safe and inclusive space for female identifying individuals, especially those in the LGBTQIA+ community. She has been working with Advanced Therapy Associates since March of 2019 and started private practice in December 2019. Caitlin became certified to supervise LPC candidates in 2022.
She graduated from Luther College with a bachelors in Sociology in 2013. Caitlin then decided to attend graduate school, and received a masters of science in clinical counseling psychology from Mid America Christian University. She resides in Oklahoma with her husband, son, and corgi mutt Gatsby.
Caitlin's foundational approach to counseling centers on establishing rapport and collaborative relationships with clients, often aligning with person centered and narrative therapy approaches. She specializes in anxiety disorders and trauma from narcissistic abuse.

Individual therapy is a process through which clients work one-on-one with the counselor. This is done in a safe, caring, and confidential environment to explore your feelings, beliefs, and behaviors. In these 45 to 60 minute sessions (depending upon insurance coverage) clients will work through challenging of influential memories, identify aspects of life that they would like to change, set personal goals, and work toward desired change. Caitlin approaches therapy using TF-CBT, Narrative Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy approaches.
Couples counseling is a process through which a couple works with the counselor to identify specific areas of conflict and/or aspects of their relationship they would like to change. This is done through the Gottman Method. Couples counseling will not be done if intimate partner abuse and/or violence is occurring. Caitlin has completed Gottman level two and can now assist couples with trauma and affairs. In these sessions couples will address any immediate and pressing problems, develop strategies for protecting and enhancing the long-term health and happiness of the relationship, and set goals for the relationship. Please be aware that many insurance policies do not cover couples counseling.
Caitlin's personal philosophy is to counsel individuals from a person centered approach. This is an emphasis on the individual to become their most authentic self; focusing on their concerns and goals. From here there will be implementation of cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy to help work through conflicts and achieve collaborative goals.
