Caitlyn Bottom, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
LIC NO. 126057


I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) at Foresight Carlsbad. I received my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from The University of San Diego. I have experience working in Outpatient and Residential Mental Health Settings, working with children, families, parents, and young adults. I am passionate about assisting individuals and families with developing the necessary skills and knowledge to make positive progress towards their current and future life goals, while navigating the challenges of change and uncertainty along the way. I believe that therapy should be provided from a client centered, trauma informed and empathetic perspective; focusing on connecting clients with their strengths and needs through exploration of thoughts, feelings, actions, and relationships with themselves and others. I provide a safe therapeutic space for clients of all gender identities and sexual orientations. My specialty areas include working with children and adolescents, as well as anxiety, depression, coping skills, interpersonal relationships, LGBTQ and foster youth. I have experience using interventions from Cognitive behavioral therapy, Trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and strength-based approaches.
