Meet Caylin

Mental Health Professional, LMHCA

...To equip me as a professional therapist, I received my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology as well as a Certificate of Completion in Narrative Focused Trauma Care Level 1 through the Allender Center at The Seattle School. Prior to my clinical training, I was in full-time pastoral ministry with my husband for 15 years where I also participated in over 100 hours of biblical counseling training.

My ministry experience afforded me the privilege of serving and being shaped by a diversity of people, both young and old, as has my role as a mother. My husband and I have 5 children and one daughter-in-law, ranging in age from young adulthood through the elementary years. The combination of all these experiences in addition to my own family of origin stories proves what is true of all people: life is full of both joy and pain, hope and despair, death and resurrection.

In honor of our God-designed need to be fully known, I, as your therapist am committed to cultivating safety, vulnerability, and emotional intimacy. In time, through our unique and collaborative relationship, my hope is to explore and make meaning of the pain that has inevitably surfaced through relational ruptures in your life. Centered on the belief that our earliest relationships profoundly impact all areas of life, including the significant relationships of today, our time together will include consideration of how your unique story has shaped you.

My approach to counseling is informed by attachment, interpersonal neurobiology, and story. In our time together we will explore your current and past relational patterns to gain insight into the origins of your emotions, thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. It is my hope that the awareness you gain will inform new ways of being that bring wholeness, agency, and greater joy to your life. Be encouraged that the struggles and pain experienced today can serve as signals to explore yesteryear, while beckoning us toward healing and freedom for tomorrow.
