Novo is the Latin word for "renew, refresh and revive." Every person has the potential to change their lives for the better, to heal and restore themselves using the resources that already exist within them. That's where I come in. My name is Caitlin Derouen MC, NCC, LPC and I am owner and counselor at Novo Counseling and Wellness. My goal is to teach you to access your internal resources to unlock your body's natural ability to heal itself. Through our work together, you will learn to "renew, refresh and revive" your mind and body and achieve your full potential. Let me guide you in learning how to live a valuable life, free from the pain and burden of your past.
Our focus is to help individuals heal themselves from their trauma, free themselves from the fear and distress of chronic anxiety, lift the burden of depression, find value in each day, build motivation and feel their best!
Every step of your journey is important. No matter where you are in your mental health journey, our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Arizona and a National Certified Counselor through the National Board for Certified Counselors. I am a certified Basic Accelerated Resolution Therapy Practitioner and an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained therapist.
I specialize in treating acute and complex trauma, anxiety, depression and more. I LOVE to learn, and I bring my love of knowledge into my therapy sessions with you. I see it as my duty to share with you the knowledge that you need to be able to heal yourself from the inside out. I have a wealth of knowledge regarding trauma-informed, cognitive and body based interventions to bring you an approach to wellness your whole self will benefit from. A person is not just their thoughts and feelings, we look at the comprehensive picture of who you are to decide what path suits you and your goals for treatment.
