Hi, I’m Caitlin. I write about trauma recovery, relationships, boundaries, and love. You may be wondering why my website is called “Born Again Minimalist” when I talk about trauma recovery, relationships, boundaries, and love — and that makes you an astute observer.

It’s called that because this blog started as a minimalism blog when I got rid of half my stuff to move into a 500 square foot apartment in 2012. I still post about minimalism from time to time, but after I left an abusive marriage, I started blogging more about self care, positive self image, and healthy boundaries.

Minimalism has become the way I say no to everything that does not serve me, even when that something (or someone) is extremely hard to say no to.

It would be my absolute honor to help you find the strength to say no to what doesn’t serve you so that you feel empowered to give a hearty “fuck yeah” to what sets your soul on fire.

Navigating the site

At the top of the page you’ll see links to the following:

Blog: Read my blog posts here. I try to use categories and tags to organize things, but I am not perfect. Flip through the archives if you like – the earlier years focus mainly on decluttering and minimalism, while more recent things are more trauma recovery goodness.

Book: Read all about “The Gaslighting of the Millennial Generation” and order a hard copy, e-book, or audiobook. You can also receive a signed copy of the book if you sign up for certain patron levels on my Patreon.

Contact: Reach out to me if you have a question or would like to submit a guest post.

Featured: A list of articles I’ve been featured or quoted in.

Workshops: Book me to speak, or find out where I’ll be speaking next.


A huge hug and my endless thanks go out to Patreon supporters who believe in my writing. Support tiers start at just $1 per month with exclusive access to Patron-only posts!
