Professional statement

Caitlin Vinter is a therapist specializing in women's mental health, wellness, and empowerment. She sees women for anxiety, maternal mental health concerns, mild to moderate depression, life transitions, quarter-life crises, work or academic stress, and difficulties with family, peer, or romantic relationships. Her clientele is mostly young women, ages 18 - 35 years old, including college and graduate students and young professionals.

Caitlin pulls from various therapeutic approaches to help her clients overcome life stressors and achieve their goals. She helps clients recognize and shift automatic negative thoughts and unhelpful core beliefs through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; identify core values through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy; and develop psychological flexibility through mindfulness and value-based goal setting.

Caitlin gained her experience at an outpatient clinic, residential substance use facility, a community drop in center for individuals with chronic illness, and supportive housing agency. She offers both in-person and remote therapy sessions for Massachusetts-based clients.

Clients experiencing any of the following may be a good fit for therapy with Caitlin:
  • mild depression
  • anxiety
  • peer or romantic relationship challenges
  • life transitions
  • work or academic stress
  • sense of self
  • identity
  • loneliness
  • family issues
Because of the limits of Caitlin's private practice, clients with the following specific issues may be better served by a different therapist:
  • high risk for suicide/ serious self-harm
  • history of psychiatric inpatient hospitalization, partial hospitalization
  • history of suicidal thoughts, attempts, or self harm
  • severe eating disorders
  • active substance use
  • anyone requiring more than weekly contact and who needs greater access to their providers

Message to clients

I am passionate about helping my clients work through their struggles as they uncover and achieve their preferred path in life. Being truthful and vulnerable is no easy feat, so I do my best to make my clients feel welcomed, respected, and accepted in our work together.
