Kaitlyn is a compassionate therapist who believes the most important step in the healing journey is through a strong therapeutic relationship. She is dedicated to creating a warm and secure environment that promotes trust and unconditional acceptance, knowing that you are worthy of love just by being human. She approaches therapy through a psychodynamic lens, aiming to gain insight to a person’s current problems by exploring past experiences. She also uses an integrative approach to meet the specific needs of each client, believing there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy! Prior to joining Ellie, Kaitlyn spent time at a non-profit in-patient substance use facility, serving those in the community who experienced co-occurring addiction and mental health issues. She has also served in the Minnesota Army National Guard for 10 years and has experience working with the military and law enforcement.
Outside of work, Kaitlyn enjoys spending time with her family, tending to her houseplants, trying new foods around the community, and writing poetry.
