About me

Using a contemporary strength-based integrative approach as a basis for therapy, I fit each therapy to the client. Areas of expertise include personal crisis and trauma, academic or educational issues, social skill training, stress and anxiety management, life coaching, relationship dialogues, military-related issues, parenting, and blended families. I approach each client with empathy, support, trust, and persistence, working with each client to increase confidence and self-esteem, develop richer relationships, and achieve emotional balance and health.
Sometimes all we need is a different perspective, which is a unique ability that I offer that often allows the client to achieve a growth mindset.
I became a therapist to support clients as they navigate complex environments to encourage growth for a healthier life. I believe my strengths-based integrative approach will help clients achieve goals they aspire to achieve.
I look forward to working with you

It’s been a really long time since I have felt genuinely this happy, and that’s saying a lot because this summer…this life…hasn’t been easy, but I am so grateful that I was the one chosen to live it. Thank you for everything.

She has exceeded every expectation and continues to help me through various issues I am struggling with. I don’t think I could have made it through a very difficult time in my life without her.

I love that Dr. Kitchen listens and allows me to simply feel the emotions that I am experiencing. She communicates how to apply in the moment techniques to help minimize the stress that emotions or thoughts can produce if left out of hand. I am very holistic in my lifestyle and she respects that and incorporates it into our sessions.

Dr. Kitchen is always very helpful. Anytime I come to her she responds as quick as she can (I get we all are people with lives) I always get a response same day. She has given me many tips that have helped for any issue I bring to her and she is helping me. I may not utilize everything better help offers but she doesn't shame me for it or pressure me. She just works with me and the way I do things and doesn't judge or lecture me. She just let's me take my time and go at my pace which is honestly is the reason I'm sticking with it.
