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.
