Reframe your symptoms. Rediscover your strengths. Reimagine your future.
Kaitlyn (Machairas) Wilson
Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
Owner/Founder of Reframed Counseling
Have you or someone you love experienced trauma or stress and are struggling with feelings, thoughts, or behaviors that seem unhealthy, unhappy, or unsafe? Have you questioned or thought maybe something is wrong with them or you?
As a child I was kicked out of school for running away. No one asked what led me to this behavior. As a social worker I saw children suspended from daycare and schools. I witnessed adoptions fail due children who survived abuse and trauma becoming "unmanageable." I saw teens placed in alternative schools have increased behaviors and young adults drop of of college or struggle to find their passion and purpose. I worked with adults who yearned for a family struggle with negative relationships or inability to make an effort and parents who wanted to change the cycle of abuse struggle and fail. These individuals did not have support and often times have long lists of diagnoses and failed therapy attempts. Services who specialize in understanding and treating trauma are limited.
I have dedicated my career to changing this narrative and now
open the doors to Reframed Counseling.
At Reframed I understand there is nothing wrong with you or your family. Rather something you experienced or are experiencing is impacting your behaviors and emotions in a way which feels too overwhelming to change without support.
With this practice I hope to build a community which reframes struggles into strengths and helps others successfully set and achieve goals.
Reframed Counseling provides healig focused therapy for anyone suffering from symptoms of trauma and stress such as depression, social isolation, family or peer conflicts, defiance, isolation, anxiety, PTSD, self-harm, suicidal ideation, aggression, sexual identity challenges, mood and attention difficulties, lack of motivation and other related symptoms.
However, it is my hope Reframed goes beyond typical therapy in ensuring everyone I work with feels empowered, better understanding their diagnosis, their symptoms and leaves with the skills and confidence to lead the life they desire.
An experienced therapist, supervisor, manager, director and trainer across outpatient, community based, wraparound, residential treatment, and detention settings I have several years of experience supervising and providing evidence based therapy around trauma, stress and adversity to diverse individuals, families, and the providers who care for them. I am trained in several trauma informed modalities and treatment techniques to support results oriented and customized treatment plans.
As a faculty member and resource developer for agencies specializing in complex trauma, I have the experience and knowledge to provide relatable education around trauma, stress, and adversity to support successful treatment.
I feel honored to be considered a part of your support system to help you reimagine your future.
