Kitty Martin


15 years of experience

Hello! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I have 15 years experience working in mental health. I have experience with all populations, teens, kids, personality disorders, severe mental illness, and challenging martial issues. I aspire to create a safe environment for my clients and families and invite you to go on a journey of discovery and healing. Together we will explore your life's most challenging matters and heal the wounds that impact your life. I enjoy working through spiritual issues and can apply biblical and other spiritual principles to your treatment at your request. I am comfortable working with clients from all worldviews, faiths, and orientations. I love my clients and enjoy growing along with them! Looking forward to helping you find your light!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together we'll do a brief introduction, go over some of my practice documents and then hit the ground running! You'll have an opportunity to share what is bringing you to counseling and together we will begin creating some goals for our time together.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I often use a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Emotion-Focused therapy in my practice. I am informed in internal family systems and often do inner child healing with my clients. Together we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With these treatment approaches we'll look at how your thoughts affect your emotions and life experience. During treatment, I'll help you learn how to push back against those thoughts to change your feelings for the better. We can apply spiritual principles to your process if you'd like.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I really enjoy working with individuals, couples, and kids/teens experiencing mental illness and/or personality disorders. I have 10 years experience working in inpatient mental health and I'm very familiar with the system and how it can impact one's growth and healing. It's often difficult to find a therapist willing to work with teens and kids. I have 3 children and have done extensive inner childhood healing of my own. I feel very confident with all ages and life paths. I also have both personal and professional experience with ADHD, infidelity, divorce, religious trauma, childhood sexual abuse (survivor), Complex PTSD, trauma healing and recovery, generational trauma, and gentle parenting and discipline. I aspire to hold a very safe and nurturing space where you can freely explore the depths of your consciousness, but I also offer my clients real and lasting healing through the use and practice of several different therapeutic interventions. I believe that true healing is possible and that you can be set free from whatever is holding you back!
