Meet Kaitlin

Kaitlin Lubahn, MA, LMFT works with people of all ages who are seeking to overcome mental health obstacles. In addition, she uses play therapy techniques when working with kids.

RELATABLE

Having dealt with anxiety herself, she relates to individuals with mental health challenges. Through her own journey she has learned which coping skills help her the best. Similarly, she is able to teach to others about coping skills so they can stay afloat through the ups and downs of their situations.

Another way that Kaitlin relates is that she has been on the other side. As a teenager, Kaitlin also went through therapy and therefore understands how it feels to open up to another person about feelings and emotions. It isn’t always an easy thing to do. For this reason, she is well aware of the importance of feeling as comfortable as possible. She also works to form connections with them so that they are able to talk through the difficult things they face.

OPTIMISM AND COMPASSION

As a provider, she cares for everyone that she works with. She loves getting to know each person for who they are and witnessing them grow as people. The opportunity to walk beside them while they explore themselves and how to overcome their challenges is something that Kaitlin really enjoys. She has always had a passion for helping others and has been a caretaker all her life.

Likewise, she strives to help people find their strengths and identify positives. She is an optimist at heart and knows that she is often a bright spot for people who experience darkness. It is easy to get bogged down by daily problems and she firmly believes that having an optimistic outlook can help. With each individual she works with, she enjoys finding something to be grateful for so they can focus on that when they need a positive.

HONEST COMMUNICATION

Kaitlin is open and honest in her communication with others. She appreciates when they communicate in the same way and ask questions. Her first priority is always the individual she is working with and how she can help them.

Keeping an open-mind and welcoming collaboration helps her to guide others as they reach their goals. For instance, she uses problem-solving skills to help break down their challenges. As a result, problems appear smaller, and less intimidating to tackle. She loves watching others utilize their new coping skills and make progress throughout the therapeutic relationship.
