Kendra is here to support you with anxiety, depression, trauma, and disordered eating.

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. 

Right for you if:

You are looking for a therapist who specializes in disordered eating.
You are looking for someone to talk to about relationship concerns or challenges.
You are looking for help managing anxiety.
You are looking for support overcoming trauma or sexual assault.

Q&A

What does good mental health look like to you?
Good mental health is like tending to a garden. I like this analogy because every individual garden has different needs - some have cactuses others have orchids. Gardens are sometimes thriving and sometimes they are overrun with weeds. Therapy can help to maintain the flowers that are already there or start to dig up weeds that are stopping new growth from taking root.
What would you say to a friend struggling with a mental health issue?
Shall we process or problem-solve this?
What is a motto or idea that gives you reassurance when you’re having a difficult time?
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou
