Caitlin Senger, LPC Associate

Caitlin Senger, LPC Associate

Counselor: Children, Teens, Adults

Caitlin has a passion for working with children and adolescents, using an approach that’s both creative and developmentally appropriate: Person-centered therapy pulls from play therapy, expressive arts, sand tray, talk therapy, and mindfulness interventions. Together, these interventions help her to join the child in their own world, meeting them at their own level of understanding.

Caitlin creates an environment of empathy, nonjudgement, and curiosity, which allows children and adolescents to feel safe enough to be vulnerable, honor their authentic selves, and realize their own potential for growth and resilience.

Although Caitlin primarily works with children and adolescents, she also works with adults, using traditional talk therapy. Caitlin recognizes every person’s need for a therapeutic experience that’s tailored to them as an individual. She works collaboratively to identify therapeutic goals, believing people already have the strength necessary to create lasting change in their lives.

Caitlin focuses on issues such as depression, anxiety, grief and loss, life transitions, self-esteem difficulties, stress, behavioral issues, and parent/child relationships.

Caitlin is supervised by Celina McDonald, LPC-S.

Why Therapy?

Growing up, I was the person people gravitated towards and trusted with their inner pain and turmoil. I have a natural curiosity for people’s stories and their capacity for change. But ultimately, it was my own work in therapy that led me to pursue this career path. I hoped to pay it forward and be the person I needed when I was younger.

Professional Motivation

What I love most about counseling is walking with people on their path to healing. My clients continue to inspire me, and I am humbled to be invited into their world.

Hobbies

Gardening, organizing, listening to comedy podcasts, trying new food, traveling, rewatching my favorite shows and spending time with my loved ones plus my two rescue pups.

Previous Occupations

I have spent my career helping children and adolescents on their path to healing in a variety of settings. I have worked as a research assistant studying the effects of childhood trauma on the brain. A grief counselor for a nonprofit, joining children and families on their grief journey. A case manager in an inpatient facility, helping children and adults find community resources and most recently as an adolescent therapist for teens in emotional crisis in an inpatient facility.
