Hey there! My name is Brooke Caouette and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Masters in Social Work from Azusa Pacific University and studied psychology as an undergraduate at Seattle Pacific University. I have worked alongside individuals and families as a program therapist within an intensive outpatient program, an adoptions social worker, a school social worker, and within an inpatient psychiatric unit. This work is nothing short of an adventure and through it all I have learned the tremendous value of healing relationships and holding space for others.
I found my way into the field of mental health after growing up in a dysfunctional household riddled with addiction, abuse, and incarceration. My childhood experiences drive my passion to help others find healing, safety, and a healthy life. I have spent many hours on the therapy couch myself, working through my childhood and young adult experiences. I know firsthand how intimidating and anxiety provoking therapy can be! But it has the potential to be life changing and is the best gift you can give yourself, your family, and your relationships.
I love this work and enjoy the process of forming therapeutic relationships with clients as they share their stories. My first priority is creating a safe and approachable therapy environment- my style is collaborative, empathetic, and casual. I work from a trauma informed, culturally sensitive, and affirming perspective. I have experience working with anxiety, trauma, depression, gender dysphoria, sexuality, bipolar disorders, ADHD, family dysfunction, relational issues, and life transitions. I work alongside client’s to identify what they are experiencing, how it is impacting their functioning, and how to move forward.
Outside of the therapy office, I am a Mama of three and a wife to my high school sweetheart. Together we love to camp in our big blue conversion van, surf, hike, swim, and spend our days at the beach. In those rare moments when I get to be alone I can be found trail running, making delicious food, or immersing myself in a great book.
I am so glad you are considering therapy for yourself, it would be my privilege to be along for the ride!
