Kaiti’s passion for helping others began with an interest in working with adolescents. She followed
this passion in college to help others with a focus on education and psychology. Kaiti carried this forward by attending University of Nebraska at Omaha counseling program. She graduated in 2018 and started putting her passion into action working with parents, families, and schools to relieve problems related to children’s behaviors including defiance, emotional dysregulation, poor social skills, low self-esteem, and verbal and physical aggression.
I work to help families by creating a healthy, trusting relationship between parent and child. This happens through helping parents find appropriate boundaries and consistency. I enjoy working closely to understand the unique challenges each family faces. This helps me to find solutions that are individualized and realistic for that family. I love when a family reports feeling confident in their ability to get through stressful behaviors and enjoy harmonious family functioning.
I am a clinical social worker and a licensed mental health therapist. I completed my graduate studies at the University Of Denver Graduate School Of Social Work in 2014. I spent much of my time in my social work studies working with diverse clientele in community settings. I spent several years working with individuals in a healthcare setting, some of which included individuals experiencing traumatic events, and those in hospice care. I also have experience in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, family crisis, and grief.
I enjoy working with clients of all ages, however I am especially passionate about women’s health. Specifically, women experiencing pregnancy, post-partum depression, and perinatal loss. I believe in using a holistic approach, focusing on physical, mental, spiritual and social health needs. I operate from a strengths based approach, utilizing elements of CBT and attachment informed treatment.
In today’s world the pressures of work, family life, and social relationships can feel overwhelming and difficult to navigate. Often people feel pressure to “have it all together” and “be okay”. These social pressures can make it hard to reach out for help when we need it. Therapy can help you move towards making the changes you want to see in your life. I am a strong advocate for self-care and it is important to take care of yourself so you can be the best version of you. I feel it is importance to recognize each individual’s unique experiences, and develop goals based on you being the expert of your own life. My goal is to create a space where clients feel safe and that they can be open without fearing judgment.
Recognizing a need for help and reaching out is the first step toward positive changes and a healthier you. My goal is to help people to reach an improved level of mental health and well-being. Self-Care is important as it is impossible to be an effective caregiver to others if you are not taking care of yourself. I utilize a strengths-based approach, meeting people where they are in their journey and working toward a common goal.
I have experience working with a variety of ages, but my area of passion involves working with children and adolescents. My areas of experience include trauma, depression, anxiety, ADHD, RAD, Autism, and SPMI’s among others. I have worked as a Crisis Therapist as well as providing ongoing counseling in an office and intensive in-home setting.
At times, life can become overwhelming and confusing at any stage of life. Individuals have differing abilities managing the circumstances faced during times of crisis or in times of calm. It is my goal to guide individuals to gain and grow the tools to navigate the world today.
