[ REDMOND MEDICAL  |  accepting new clients]

Dr. Kaitlin Forestieri is a provider at our Redmond Medical Center clinic who provides psychiatry services in-person and via telehealth. She earned her PsyD from Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, in clinical psychology. As a postdoctoral fellow, she provides psychotherapy and therapeutic assessment (psychodiagnostic, personality, neurocognitive) under the supervision of a licensed psychologist.

Utilizing a trauma-informed lens, Dr. Forestieri centers her therapeutic work around partnering with her clients to formulate a collaborative understanding of their concerns and goals for therapy. Additionally, Dr. Forestieri is heavily informed by psychodynamic theory and cognitive-behavioral techniques (CPT, CBT), allowing her work to be integrative and tailored to each client’s needs. Dr. Forestieri commonly works with individuals who have experienced trauma during their lifetime (complex or single incident), those who struggle with relationships, issues related to identity/sense of self, depression, and anxiety. Dr. Forestieri also welcomes clients who are active-duty military, veterans, and military family members.

Dr. Forestieri’s assessment work has focused on diagnostic clarification for complex concerns including dementia/major neurocognitive disorders, PTSD/complex PTSD, dissociation, and personality disorders. She believes that all assessments should be conducted in a recovery-oriented way with personalized recommendations provided with any findings.

Dr. Forestieri is originally from Delaware—where she also completed her undergraduate degree, attended graduate school in South Florida, and completed her pre-doctoral internship at the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System prior to moving to the greater Seattle area. Through living in various parts of the country, Dr. Forestieri has had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of clients in ethnicity, gender/sexuality, socioeconomic status, religion, and life experiences. Dr. Forestieri welcomes clients from all backgrounds to join her for therapeutic work, believing “I may be the expert in the therapeutic techniques, but you are the expert in you! Together, we can find the answers you have been looking for to get you feeling better.”
