Kendra is here to help you manage anxiety, build resilience, and challenge limiting beliefs. She specializes in anxiety, depression, stress management, and self-esteem. Kendra also supports people who struggle with trauma or eating disorders to create greater self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-acceptance. She is passionate about helping you achieve the best version of yourself.
Kendra brings her caring, collaborative, and non-judgmental approach to empower you to take action. Kendra believes that it’s not simply nature versus nurture, but the combination of nature and nurture that make us who we are. She can help you explore past structures and trauma, and how they affect the way you think and behave today. In doing so, you can break down the socio-cultural challenges that impact your life.
Kendra often includes feminist theory in her therapy. She advocates for gender equity and seeks to break down constraining gender norms that are a systemic issue in our society. She strives to decolonize her practices by weaving intersectionality into each session. Kendra works with all ages and genders and is ready to listen to your story.
