Caitlin Lafferty, LCSW (she/her)


I’m Caitlin.

I am a strong believer that we are who we are because of our relationships, environment and experiences. I enjoy helping people make connections and gain insight into themselves to overcome life’s challenges.

The clients I work with often start in a place where they feel stuck, misunderstood, or alone in solving their problems. I help them by breaking things down into small, manageable steps that ultimately empowers them to make change through self-love and intentional action.

I work with teens, women and couples struggling with life transitions, relationship/family issues, anxiety, depression, and stress management by using evidenced based models with a conversational approach. This includes couples who want to heal, women who are looking for change and teens who are learning the skills they need to transition to the next stage. I have a realistic and solution-focused perspective that is paired with humor and creativity that celebrates your unique nature. I know that therapy requires bravery and vulnerability, so I am intentional about creating a space where you feel heard, validated and worthy.

I believe you already have the strengths within you to overcome your struggles. I want to help you put those to use. I am hopeful that you can create a healthy and fulfilling life and I am thankful to be a part of your journey.

See you soon!
