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, and began her career in a multitude of social service positions. Caitlin then decided to attend graduate school, and received a masters of science in clinical counseling psychology from Mid America Christian University.
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 those with trauma from narcissistic abuse. Caitlin has passed level two training in the Gottman Method and can assist couples with: PTSD, trauma, and affairs.
Caitlin does not provide children's or men's psychotherapy. Clients must be at least 16 years of age. Accepted insurances include:
Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield (all kinds), Cigna, First Health, Friday Health Plans, Healthcare Highways, HealthChoice, Health Smart Benefit Solutions, Kempton Group, Multiplan, Oscar, United Healthcare/UMR/Optum, Oklahoma Soonercare, OEPIC, and those doing self pay ($150).
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) we will work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of life that you would like to change, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
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 domestic violence is occurring. Caitlin has completed Gottman level two and can now assist couples with trauma and affairs. In these sessions we 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 and self pay may be a better option.
Caitlin's personal philosophy is to counsel individuals from a person centered approach. What this means is an emphasis on the individual become their most authentic self- focusing on their concerns and goals. From here Caitlin is able to implement techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy to help work through conflicts and achieve collaborative goals.
