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

Headshot of Kendra Casey from waist up smiling in a business casual top.

Kendra works with all ages and genders to address eating disorders, disordered eating, and trauma. Kendra believes you can address these challenges by exploring your relationship with your body and your behaviours, thoughts, and emotions. Together, you and Kendra can identify patterns that you can change to create a more balanced life.

Kendra is here to listen to your story. Kendra uses various evidence-based practices to help you make connections and identify patterns in your life. She believes that it’s not simply nature versus nurture, but the combination of nature and nurture that make us who we are. This perspective can help you understand the anxiety and depression cycles that may be woven in your story.

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.

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
