Caitlin Peña is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern, under the Supervision of Dr. Linda Marten, PhD. She graduated with her Master in Biblical Counseling at Dallas Theological Seminary and completed her B.A. in Sociology at California Baptist University. Caitlin is passionate about working with women who have experienced various forms of trauma and is trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy to treat PTSD.
Before working as a LPC-Intern, Caitlin helped women who were recently diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer as the care coordinator through a program called Show Me Healthy Women. She also has training in Applied Behavior Analysis while working in early childhood intervention with children on the spectrum.
