I Support the Latinx Community By Helping Break Down Barriers to Mental Health Services
Learn About Me and How I Can Help
Caitrina Fragoso, LPC
Hello, my name is Caitrina (Cat) Fragoso and I’m a psychotherapist at Latinx Talk Therapy. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I like to include validation, psychoeducation, and pop culture references in my sessions. My clinical approach is eclectic, which means that I include multiple approaches based on the individualized needs and experiences of my clients.
As a Latina, I understand the importance of upholding traditions and cultural values while also managing the pressure to acculturate to the US cultural norms. I believe that through therapy we can begin to heal the societal pressures, childhood traumas, and generational traumas.
You Don’t Have to Face Your Struggles Alone, I Am Here to Help
In my past professional experiences I have worked with individuals of all ages, I also have experience working with families and have facilitated therapy groups. I have experience working with individuals experiencing anxiety and clients who have a history of trauma. I have worked with the veteran population and have focused many continuing education credits on the veteran and Latinx community.
I encourage my clients to maintain regular self-care. My biggest forms of self-care are hiking with my two German Shepherds and spending time with my family. Your form of self-care may look different than mine because finding what works for you is what matters.
Get to Know A Little Bit More About Me
I was born and raised on the north side of Chicago. My father emigrated from D.F., Mexico and my maternal grandparents are from Puerto Rico and Chile. Due to the discrimination faced as children, my parents chose not to teach my siblings and I Spanish. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Saint Xavier University in 2017. I was the first person in my family to receive a Master’s Degree. I completed my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my family or doing arts and crafts, hiking with my two German Shepherds, or reading with Abuelita’s hot chocolate.
I have experience working with individuals that have a history of trauma, severe mental illness, disorders on the anxiety spectrum, and disorders on the compulsive spectrum. My specialties are veterans, trauma, and anxiety.
