My name is Caitlin Silveira and I recently joined the staff at the Tribal Health Clinic as a mental health counselor. I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Iowa, and have been a practicing therapist for 8 years. My background is in community mental health, and I have done most of my work with individuals who have experienced trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Additionally, I have experience working with people with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, dual-diagnosis issues, and schizophrenia. My clinical background is in cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as process-oriented and trauma focused treatment. I believe in meeting people where they are at and walking alongside the people that I work with on their journey to greater mental health and wellness. Previous to employment on the Meskwaki Settlement, I was working managing a community outreach team in the greater Boston area. I have a passion for community mental health and am excited to join the team at the health clinic.
