My name is Kaitlyn Power, and I am a licensed clinical social worker in Southern California, specializing in working with young adults. I have been practicing therapy since 2016.
As a therapist, I value the uniqueness of each individual client, and provide support and compassion to encourage clients to feel safe in expressing their current thoughts and feelings. I listen empathetically, affirming each client’s sense of worth and value, and at the same time I gently encourage them to expand their comfort zone by asking questions and empowering them to take small steps towards their realized goals.
A big of part of my work revolves around acknowledging my client’s vulnerable emotions. I will help you develop vocabulary to describe some of these emotions, including any anxieties, worries, and fears. Many of these feelings and thought patterns may stem from childhood. I use a psychodynamic and attachment based approach to therapy which means I believe that our behaviors, feelings, relationships, and emotions are related to our early experiences. I also incorporate other evidence based practices and modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Problem Solving Therapy to address some of the current issues affecting each client.
From our work together, you can expect to develop a greater understanding of yourself in relationship to others, such as family, friends, romantic partners, and coworkers. This in turn will give you the ability to advocate for yourself in all your personal relationships and create healthy boundaries.

Work with me
Searching for a therapist who is the right fit for your unique needs can be difficult, but attainable. To see if we could potentially be a compatible match before we start working together, I offer a courtesy 15-minute phone consultation. If we don’t feel like it is the right fit, I am more than willing to offer other referrals.
