Kaitlin Armon, LPC


Crystal Lake Office


I have experience working with clients ranging in ages from adolescence through the lifespan. Settings and types of counseling experience include individual therapy, group therapy; behavioral health intensive inpatient and partial hospitalization programs. I have worked at Gateway, Rosecrance, and Eating Recovery Center/Insight Behavioral Health in areas of addiction, eating disorders, issues with mood, anxiety and dual diagnosis.


I am experienced in eating disorders, anxiety, depression, marital and relationship issues, life transitions and addiction. Most often, I use Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral therapy (DBT) in my therapy with clients. I work with adults, young adults, and adolescence (16 and older). I also provide Christian counseling to clients desiring to incorporate their Christian faith in the healing process.


How I Help

After many years of counseling clients,  I have learned that the most important part of therapy is that clients have a secure, trusting and supportive relationship with their therapist. Considering this, I strive to not only help clients reach their goals, but also to help clients feel seen, heard and understood throughout their counseling journey. I also love to join with clients, teaching them different types of coping skills to help them appreciate the power of a healthier thought process, how to validate and process their feelings and experience, identifying and working through triggering situations. I want clients to walk away from therapy feeling like they have grown and are learning how to thrive in their lives. 

I have had a variety of life experiences including, playing a college sport, traveling, spending time in India, navigating various medical issues as well as, more recently, becoming a mom. These experiences have given me a greater understanding of different cultures, more empathy for clients struggling with chronic pain and ongoing health issues, and the first-hand experience in the challenges and demands of being a parent.


More About Me

My husband Thomas and I have a daughter, Lydia, who is currently a very high energy toddler. I enjoy exercising, biking, and spending time outside in nature. Spending quality time with friends and family, board games, journaling, prayer, and having alone time are all things that bring me joy and fill my cup. I have personally invested time into counseling myself and understand firsthand the power and change that therapy can foster, it has changed my life.
