ABOUT CAITLIN

I’m Caitlin, a Holistic Life Coach, empowering men and women around the world to naturally heal their anxiety, turn their professional dreams into reality, and design vibrant and meaningful lives.

I’ve spent over a decade training and trailblazing around the globe - from Ivy-league universities to deep in the Himalayan mountains - seeking and refining the answer to 1 question: what are the keys to deep and lasting happiness?

What sent me on this glorious mission? Well, for over 15 years, I struggled with extreme anxiety and depression. I did well in school and in my career, but I walked through the world with a deep sense of unworthiness and the belief that I was always a burden to those around me. Consequently, I shied away from bringing my dreams to life, and from developing meaningful relationships.

Psychologists told me I had a ‘chemical imbalance’ and put me on a long list of medications. Sometimes they helped numb the pain, but I can’t remember ever feeling truly happy during those times. 

Desperate for relief, I signed up for Masters in Social Work at Columbia University, where I began practicing various forms of psychotherapy. I found tremendous solace through Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, a systematic approach to changing dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts.

With a healthier set of beliefs on my side, I slowly unearthed the confidence to pursue one of my greatest passions: solving global poverty. I got a fellowship to move to India to start a tech-based public health project. I loved what I was doing, and threw myself headfirst into my work. Within 3 years, I had hired 50 people, we were serving 5 million low-income households, we’d raised a buttload of capital, and we were one of the fastest growing companies in the country.

But alas, I was so focused on saving the world, I forgot to take care of myself. I was overworked, under-slept, and my anxiety came roaring back. This time, it shut down my body too. I had panics attacks nearly every day, my hair started falling out, and I developed a terrible hormonal condition.

I loved helping people, but my work felt more and more hollow with every day I refused to help myself. 

Lucky to have been in India, I turned to the centuries of spiritual and natural healing traditions within the country. I spent the next 3 years immersed in the world of yoga, oils, herbs, reiki, meditation and Ayurveda.

My healing process was nothing short of miraculous. Yes, I cured my symptoms completely, and threw away my medication for good. But that was just the beginning. I learned how to love myself from the inside out, how to honor my values, and how to handle difficult situations with ease and peace. I reconnected with my inner child, and reactivated the source my abundant joyfulness and play. 

With this strong mental, emotional, and spiritual foundation, I launched and scaled another successful social business. But this time, I balanced work with a rich and fulfilling personal life. I became a deep sea diver, a latin dance performer, and a fervent gardener and cook. I attracted and created a home with the love of my life, built exciting and profound friendships, and maintained a vibrant physical health. 

Naturally, the people who had seen me suffer for so long were astounded by my turnaround. They began sending their friends and family to me for advice, and before I knew it, I had a full-blown Holistic Life Coaching practice. 

In my work with clients, I integrate the three pillars of sustainable happiness: positive mentality, physical wellness, and a life of meaning and connection. Whether I’m helping clients overcome anxiety, turn their professional dreams into reality, or simply get ‘unstuck,’ we always take this holistic, 3-pronged approach - guaranteeing a lasting, powerful, and comprehensive transformation.
