Caitlin Raab, BA
Mental Health Counseling Intern
Welcome, I am so glad that you are here! I offer a gentle and warm environment for sharing and rebuilding in times of uncertainty. Life can be overwhelming, and I am here to listen without judgment and provide a safe space to experience emotions, reflect, learn, and plan. I would love to assist you on your journey toward a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
Area of Focus
Chronic Illness – Long-term health conditions bring many challenges, including hopelessness, anger, isolation, loss of identity, anxiety, and depression. Managing the physical and mental symptoms can be extremely difficult, but there is hope! Mind-body therapies can help to reduce tension and improve coping skills.
Anxiety Management – Anxiety can present in many ways, staying for a short time, or lingering for years. In both cases, it can be uncomfortable and exhausting to manage, causing disruptions in day-to-day living. Going to therapy can feel like another thing to add to the worry list! I want you to know that it does not have to be this way, and taking small, manageable steps can mean big leaps toward wellness in the end.
Parent/Postpartum Support – Parenting is not an easy task for anyone. One day it may feel as if you have it all figured out and the next you do not know where to begin. Therapy can help you to understand that you are not alone and learn about ways to manage the challenges that come with being a parent.
I offer individual and group counseling sessions with a focus on introspection, mindfulness, and relaxation strategies. I am a trauma-informed practitioner working through the lens of strengths-based and solution-focused principles.
I am currently a graduate student at St. Bonaventure University. I am working as an intern under the supervision of Meg Tobin, LMHC.
My ideal client is motivated to better understand themselves and has the desire to work on developing healthy coping and/or communication skills. My ideal client also understands that the “work” continues outside of the therapy session and that real change requires making real changes!
My perfect day would be spent with loved ones soaking up the sunshine by the ocean. I am an animal lover and have spent my whole life surrounded by pets; dogs, cats, fish, guinea pigs, ducks, you name it! My passion for mental health began in high school when I took my first psychology class and has grown from there. Like many people, my life has been a series of ups and downs, and my best-laid plans were often met with roadblocks. Learning to navigate those unexpected setbacks and rewrite my story has not only made me more resilient but has also instilled in me deep empathy for those who walk difficult paths.
