Hope and Community in this New World

A person holding the word "hope"

The Emily Program is built on hope.

Hope whispers in a client’s first phone call, its hum beneath any fear or shame. It sets a client on a path of healing, a journey accompanied by others who then help hold that hope. It anchors all of us in a shared commitment to eating disorder treatment and recovery.

And hope keeps us together in uncertain, challenging times.

TEP: Tell us about yourself!

Caitlin:  I started working at the Cleveland Center for Eating Disorders in 2012 as an Eating Disorder Technician in the Adult Standard Program (ASPM). We (the CCED) became a part of The Emily Program in 2014 and I continued working within the program where I completed my internship from 2015-2016 as a counselor trainee. I became the program assistant in early 2017 after graduating with my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.  I’m excited to be transitioning roles later this year with the addition of a new ASPM program here at Cleveland outpatient, where I will be the program coordinator.  You can most often find me running groups and facilitating therapeutic meals with clients within the current ASAM program.

Outside of work, I’m learning how difficult it is to be a homeowner.  However, I am becoming increasingly good at fixing and decorating with a few YouTube videos and several trips to the hardware store!  I have a cat, Dahlia, and an ever-growing collection of house plants at home.  Aside from that, I started a monthly book club about a year ago that is still going strong, I spend a lot of time dog sitting, and I love live music and going to shows.  I would not have the job I have or live in the city I live in if I didn’t want to be closer to the venues I grew up going to as a teenager and continue to go to today.
