Kaitlyn Harper, LIMHP
I come to Catholic Charities with significant experience working with adolescents and young adults with a variety of mental health concerns. I confidently work with families and young children experiencing concerns related to impulsive behaviors, emotional dysregulation, low self-esteem, and problems related to defiance. I am certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and enjoy helping families build healthy, trusting relationships between parents and their children through establishing appropriate boundaries and consistency.
I also love working with teenagers and young adults experiencing depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, or struggling with a life stressor/challenge and desire an increased sense of control in their life. Clients are provided a neutral space to explore what is important to them and create meaningful goals to improve their ability to navigate life challenges, manage mood, and increase overall self-esteem. I like to bring humor and a sense of relatability into sessions when I can! I believe building a trusting relationship with each individual takes time and understanding of how stressors are experienced from their perspective. Achieving the change that is desired takes vulnerability, trust, and collaboration to reach your goals together. I strive to provide a safe space for each of my clients to do so.
