“CLI has provided the most valuable executive coaching I have received in my career to date. Not only did I feel heard, but I benefitted from the assessment we used and gained valuable insight about my personal impact on my direct reports. This allowed me to adjust my approach and realize huge gains in my department’s performance this year.”


“Dr. Cain is engaging, empathetic and action oriented. She is an extraordinary listener who can provide excellent suggestions, tips and advice tailored to your individual situation. Really enjoy working with her. She motivates well.”


“Very effective therapist.”


“Dr Cain has been very helpful with showing me how to manage my anxiety as well as stress. She listens and is very empathetic. She’s very helpful with helping me create a solid plan for my life events, and give’s me assignments to work on. Without her I don’t know how I would manage all of the things that I have going on.”


“Dr. Cain is the first therapist in a long time that has dove directly into what my needs are. She is STELLAR. Listens gives active feedback and circles back around to previous concerns. By far my favorite therapist I’ve had ever.”


“Dr. Cain was a perfect fit. She listened, understood what I needed, confirmed my stated needs and gave me the tools I needed to move forward. She is efficient, resourceful and incredibly kind and supportive.”

“Dr. Cain has helped me so much. Before starting therapy with her, I felt stuck, anxious and unsure of how to move forward in my life. Dr. Cain helped me realize that my past trauma did not define me, and she challenged my untrue thoughts about myself stemming from my past trauma. Working with her also helped me change some unhealthy behaviors I was using to help me cope. Now, at the end of therapy, I can truly say I feel much better. I know now that I am not my trauma. I am not stuck anymore but moving forward in my life. and learning to love myself more and more each day. I highly recommend Dr. Cain.”
