Guiding someone through their unique mental health challenges is what led me to help people in the mental health field. I started my career helping children and families in child protective services before moving on to working outpatient cases at a local behavioral health clinic. I’ve treated people for all levels of trauma, anxiety, and depression, and having experienced high levels of anxiety as a child, I understand how a good rapport with your therapist is key to getting better. You’ll find me easy to talk to and non-judgemental. I put all of my efforts into ensuring that you feel comfortable talking with me. I can’t wait to show you how ERP tools can help you throughout the rest of your life.

If you've had OCD for quite a while, you might feel like you haven't been heard. You deserve to be seen and heard. I’m here to listen to you.

What our members say about
April Kitchens


Jun 30, 2022

Great first session, felt seen and hopeful of my upcoming journey! She was very kind, helpful and down to earth!

Even though the therapist is good and I’ve made progress, at some stage she disappeared without apparent reason, and I got my therapy paused until today. My appointments were cancelled without notice, and never rescheduled again. When costumer service was contacted about the situation, no reason or solution was given to me, and later they even stopped replying to my emails. I’m willing to take down this review if my therapy resumes with the current or with a new therapist. I also started looking for a new therapist at the IOCDF website.
