Hi! I’m Jackie, Clinical Mental Health Counseling intern from USM, and building warm, genuine relationships is my passion. Navigating all that life throws at us can be overwhelming, and you don’t have to do it alone. Together, we’ll create a safe environment to process and explore your experiences with curiosity and compassion. From a place of empathy, I utilize mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral based approaches to help clients navigate the ups and downs.
I’m offering flexible and convenient virtual sessions via Zoom. Join me in holding space to honor whatever is going on for you at the moment Pets are always welcome in my telehealth sessions, and sometimes my two year old puppy can even be convinced to make an appearance, if requested! We’ll make this time yours — to explore, to relate, to heal, and to grow.
- 18-30 year olds (please note I am unable to service clients under the age of 18 at this time)

Hi, I’m Caitlyn… I am a graduate student at University of Southern Maine working to become a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. I come to the counseling profession after nearly a decade of working as a professional baker. Providing support to others and helping people better their lives is a deeply rooted passion of mine that called me to the counseling profession. I am trained to work with individuals, couples, families, and children.
I believe your story has power and deserves to be heard, respected and championed. I am here to be your ally in life’s challenging moments. I will show up for you with a listening ear, compassionate heart, open mind, and safe environment. Our work together begins with a strong, trusting and empathic therapeutic relationship. From there, I will be with you every step of the way as you navigate the beautiful and complex journey of your personal growth and self-empowerment.
I will work with you from a person-centered, emotion-focused approach, while also considering the systems that make up your life and story. We will work together to tailor-make a therapeutic experience that works for you. In my opinion, the goal of therapy is not to pathologize you but rather to demythologize your struggles. It is my goal to help destigmatize mental health care and give back to society through my work as your counselor.
People seek counseling when they need help overcoming life’s challenges. If you have arrived at this page, you probably understand this feeling well. Whether you are depressed, anxious, facing a crisis or looking for a sense of meaning and fulfillment that has eluded you, positive change is possible. Within each of us is the power and wisdom to heal. But, sometimes we need help to achieve this.
Whether your challenges are rooted in past trauma, major life changes or environmental hurdles, I work with you to identify the source of your issues and explore strategies and tools to help. As a counselor, I connect deeply with clients and work alongside them to explore and understand their own struggles, values and priorities. Our work often involves:
- Telling your story
- Identifying obstacles and stressors
- Enhancing self-awareness
- Managing change and transformation
- Building courage and resilience
Unlocking your own power and inner wisdom is entirely within your grasp. By establishing an empathic and honest relationship built on trust and mutual respect, we work together to help you access your inner strength and create positive change in your life.
