Kaitlyn Gardner, LPC
- Licensed Professional Counselor
What do you need from therapy? This is where we will start. At times, we all need assistance with personal growth, relationships, grieving, healing of past abuse, trauma or codependency, building leadership skills, or overcoming expectations. I believe in meeting clients where they are and assisting in creating their specific therapeutic journey. I work with teen and adult individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem, and body image issues.
I also provide trauma-related services for infants and children with their caregivers. I am trained in trauma-based practices such as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (ages 3-18) and Child Parent Psychotherapy (ages 0-6). Through these trauma-based services, I can assist you and your child in rebuilding trust, exploring areas of support, enhancing communication skills, gaining knowledge pertaining to trauma and trauma-related responses, and learning coping skills. Depending on the service that best fits your family’s specific needs, we can work to effectively resolve trauma and related concerns in a safe and positive manner that integrates your family’s unique journey.
Reaching out to a professional counselor can be tough and confusing. I strive to create a non-judgmental and compassionate space for you to feel empowered to freely express your thoughts, successes, pain, grief, or insecurities. I, too, was a therapy client at one time, and can assure you that you will never regret spending the time and effort to work through what you need.
