Ashland, Wisconsin – NorthLakes Community Clinic is pleased to announce that Caitlin Dufour, LMSW, SAC-IT, has joined the Behavioral Health Team at our Downtown Ashland Clinic. DuFour will be providing care to children and adults alike.
DuFour earned her bachelor’s degree from St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota, majoring in psychology, including a year abroad in Paris, France. She earned her masters from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
DuFour has had experience working in a variety of fields and scenarios including as a mental health case manager, in a corrections environment, as a crisis therapist and within a Veterans Affairs Hospital. Most recently she worked for Gogebic County Community Mental Health as a home-based therapist and a children’s targeted case manager.
When asked what propelled her to Behavioral Health she said: “I was interested in obtaining a dual degree in psychology and neuroscience and studying the brain. I then changed course, and began looking into policy work, and the intersection between mental health and the criminal justice system. This eventually led me to an interest in working with youth, and preventative care, to support youth who are at risk of eventually entering the adult criminal justice system.”
She went on to say, “I just really like people! I find them very interesting and enjoy the opportunity to support them in reaching their own life goals and achieving the type of life that they want for themselves.”
When she is not helping and enjoying people she spends time with her family and her dogs, taking them for long walks and enjoying everything that the outdoors has to offer. She balances this out with doing a lot of baking.
DuFour is accepting new patients. To become one, contact our Ashland Downtown Clinic at: (715) 685-2200
