Caitlin is a Master Reiki practitioner and Herbalist based in Philadelphia, PA. Her practice is largely informed by positive psychology, in which she gained a certificate in 2015. Positive psychology is the scientific study of what enables individuals and communities to thrive. Caitlin has been passionately interested in science since she was a child, constantly exploring the building blocks of her world, and using them to create anew. This led to a bachelors degree in applied science, and the organic pursuit of a career in Chemistry. She has worked as a chemist for 12 years, in sectors ranging from environmental, to pharmaceutical, to consumer products, and most recently vitamins and supplements. Although she enjoys lab work, she was called to seek out a career that would more adequately feed her strong sense of purpose. As if by fate, she found her way to positive psychology and Reiki through a friend's recommendation. This was the start of her transformation. She connected strongly to the lessons in each class, which made her feel connected to her higher self and the Universe. She felt fully aligned in her new purpose to help others heal mentally, psychically, emotionally, and spiritually. Wanting to bridge Reiki, positive psychology and chemistry together, she then enrolled in an herbalist program. She has studied Clinical Herbalism at the David Winston’s Center for Herbal Studies, and Homestead Herbalism with Susan Hess. Caitlin is thrilled to integrate herbal medicine into her practice and share her knowledge with clients and community.
