How I can help you


What my clients say

Caitlin has helped me get to new depths inside myself. The places I knew I was capable of, but couldn’t find the way to. She shined her light so bright, showing me the way to find mine.
Caitlin has opened my life in places years of therapy could NEVER provide. From the first time I chatted with her, I knew she was a gal who would push me to a level I’ve never experienced.
I have felt more heard and validated through Caitlin’s guidance than ever before in my life. She has connected the dots between my repetitive behaviors that span a lifetime—drawing my attention to parallels that I was blind to.
Investing in working with Caitlin was one of the most rewarding choices I’ve made for myself in the last several years. Caitlin is insightful and gets to the heart of issues quickly. She helps you see the thoughts, beliefs and behavior patterns that are holding you back.
I am so grateful I found Caitlin! She is an angel in my life. She has a way of delivering wisdoms and reminders that are crystal clear and straight shots to the heart.

  • Every new level you reach will come with it it’s own set of limiting beliefs. You will be inexperienced with this new aspect of yourself. You will want to reach back to the old familiar, what you have experience with. To have a breakthrough within this space and expose the limiting beliefs that accompany this new place you will need to:
Identify who you want to be within this new level. What does this version of yourself look like?
Pro Tip: When I do this line of questioning within myself I always list out specific correlating thoughts and behaviors. 
Next, ask yourself what stands in the way between who you are right now within this new level and who you actually want to be.
Make a list.
And go deep.
Make sure you're digging back into your childhood because that's always where the limiting beliefs have originated from.
Now you have begun the work of exposing your limiting beliefs.
  • Our belief in our thoughts about who we are creates our self concept. For years and years I had a terrible self concept because I didn’t know that not every thought I thought about myself was true. I just believed every thought. And they weren’t great ones — you’ll never make it, you’re not worthy like other people, you’re not capable, etc. 
You may be waiting to start thinking better thoughts about yourself in order to change your self concept. It actually doesn’t quite work like that. How it works is you will continue to think the same old crappy thoughts that you always have. But the first step is you have to stop believing them. How you do this is through creating internal space. When you have internal space (which gets cultivated via meditation, journaling, exercise and other mind calming activities) you have room inside of yourself to pause when a negative thought comes up. You have the time to ask yourself, could this possibly just be what’s been on auto play for years? Is this only true because I have placed my belief in it for so long and then acted behaviorally on that belief and thus created the external evidence that I’m currently witnessing to support that belief? 
Once you begin to engage in this process of committing to question the validity of your current thoughts, only then can you begin to think new, positive thoughts about yourself. 
If you don’t believe that it’s possible that your current thoughts aren’t true, there will be no room for you to even entertain the idea of an alternative thought being true about who you are. 
Question your thoughts. And just know that the only thing that makes something true is your belief in it.
  • When I coach my clients I tend to not use trite sayings like love yourself, be your authentic self or know your worth. Alternatively, I talk about the expressions of behavior that would indicate self love, authenticity, self worth, etc. 
Delivering crystal clear insights on the pragmatic application of ‘self love’ and the like is what I’m all about.
So let me give you some examples (big + small):
An expression of behavior of self love could be as small as brushing your teeth and washing your face before you go to bed when you’re super tired and you’d rather not. 
An expression of self love could be as grand as being willing to experience the short term pain in order to experience long term sustainable peace and happiness. 
An example of this could look like giving up a void filler (which gives short term pleasure). A void filler could be pursuing a relationship with someone that you know is ultimately not in alignment with what you want, but you don’t want to feel the pain of being alone. Or, a void filler could be drinking too much wine after work or smoking pot (short term pleasure) to avoid the pain of having to sit with your feelings.
I wanted to share a little snippet of what you may experience when coaching with me. 
I’m all about the practical and the spiritual. 
Practical = application / action
Spiritual = understanding your blocks and patterns / mindset
