remote Psychologists and Therapists

Caitlin Iwafuchi, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT 128726)  

Thanks so much for stopping by to learn more about me! I am a client-centered therapist and my main focus isproviding a space for clients to discuss and explore their inner worlds and cultivate their strengths, skills, and independence. Folks are all wonderfully unique and, when showing up for therapy, everyone’s needs, goals, and starting place are different, which is understandable and okay. Some folks show up with identified goals, some want to maintain their current mental health, and some seek a space to talk out the different experiences that life can bring to our doorsteps sometimes.

The connecting factor we all have in common is that we are all human and all continuing to learn along our life journey. Within the therapeutic process, it is important that clients feel safe to share what they feel comfortable sharing at that given moment as well as feel heard and validated. You may not feel ready or
comfortable to share all the things you want to talk about right away, and that’s perfectly acceptable and
okay. When I meet with clients, it is my goal to provide unconditional positive regard, warmth, empathy,
and respect to develop and maintain a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space where the work can
be done. As the client, you bring your expertise and knowledge of yourself and your life to the table and I
believe my role is to serve as a support and a guide toward your goals. Through the work, I strive to
provide insight, nonjudgemental feedback, support, and empathy to develop a space where the inner self
can be explored, strengths can be developed, new skills can be learned and practiced, and different life
events or experiences can be navigated.

Throughout my career, I have also worked hard to integrate different styles of interventions, including
expressive arts, therapeutic play, mindfulness, and CBT directives, into my work to provide individualized
support around your identified goals. I have worked with a wide range of clients, from elementary-level
children in a school setting to older adults in a residential care setting, and I am most passionate about
working with teenagers and young adults. During my years of training, I have worked with clients in
a variety of areas, including anxiety, stress/burnout, trauma, grief and loss, social/relational conflict,
transition/change, and depression. I am also familiar with the different stressors and challenges that can
come up during the different life phases. I enjoy practicing my cooking skills, listening to podcasts, and engaging in creative projects when I’m not working.
