Professional statement

Caitlin DiDonna is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts, specializing in the treatment of young adults, adults, members of the LGBTIAP+ community, and individuals transitioning back into the community after incarceration. Caitlin works with clientele struggling with substance use, anxiety, depression, life transitions, romantic and/or platonic relationships, stress management, and trauma.

Caitlin utilizes a myriad of different modalities in their practice based on what works best for each individual client. They are a client-centered therapist who utilizes skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, and Solution-Focused therapy. Caitlin is a strong believer in clients being the experts in their own lives and focuses on supportive collaboration and feedback.

Caitlin worked for Hope House Inc in Boston, MA for 5 years as an outpatient clinician engaging in individual and group therapy for adult men with substance use disorders. Additionally, they were the lead clinician on outside contracts with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, which allowed them to work with adult men and women transitioning out of federal incarceration. They are currently accepting clients for online sessions only, and are open to both video chat and phone calls, depending on client preference.


Message to clients

My goal as a therapist is to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental space for support and feedback. You are the expert in your life and we can work through anything as a team. Life stressors come in all shapes and sizes and navigating them alone can be difficult and exhausting. Having the ability to express yourself freely and without judgment is an essential part of therapy and working toward your goals.

Therapy is your time to process and it is crucial to me that we are focused on what is important to you. Some days are harder than others to express our struggles, and that’s okay! As a therapist, I believe I am here to support, hold space, learn, guide, and provide feedback when needed. The therapist-client connection is essential to your therapy, and I always value feedback from my clients.

I identify as a non-binary biromantic asexual individual. I am a sex-positive, kink-friendly, and poly-friendly, therapist!
