My Approach to Helping

As a counselor, I specialize in grief and trauma, depression, anxiety, and holistic health and wellness. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Therapy for individuals and couples interested in working through attachment and bonding challenges, Gottman 1 and 2 couples counseling, and mindfulness practices.

I have over 9 years of experience in the wellness industry and enjoy working with individuals who are ready to make changes and explore their lives holistically with a commitment to work and improve. My therapeutic focus is on strengths, acceptance, commitment, and ownership that will aid in improving your quality of life and achieving lasting results.

Specific issues I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have specific skills working with couples, trauma, and mood disorders.

Services I Provide

Services also known as modes or types of mental health care sessions can be given in a variety of formats, including: 

  • Individual Therapy & Counseling: This therapy involves only the patient and the therapist. Sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy is a process through which a client works one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring and confidential environment.
  • Marital/Couples Counseling: This type of therapy helps a couple that is struggling with aspects of their relationship. This type of therapy can also be used o help spouses and partners understand why their loved one has a mental disorder, what changes in communication and behaviors can help, and what they can do to cope.
  • Premarital Counseling: A type of therapy that helps couples take the next step in their relationship, resolve issues in their relationship before they commit to marriage, or set relationship goals.
  • Relationship Counseling: Focuses on improving the relationship between individuals by helping them resolve interpersonal issues. The relationship may fall under the marital, couple or family groups or may be in-laws, friends, co-workers or other acquaintances. 
  • Telehealth: Also known as teletherapy, generally, refers to individual psychotherapy or talk therapy delivered through technology like video conferencing.

Types of Therapy

Psychotherapy, also referred to as talk therapy, psycho-social therapy, counseling, or, simply, therapy, is the primary method for treating mental health problems by talking with a mental health provider. The goal is the help an individual better understand their mental health and teach strategies and tools that manage unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.

While there are many approaches to psychotherapy, there is no single approach that works for everyone. A  therapist may use a blended approach, sampling techniques from several different types of psychotherapy. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives depends on his or her own unique needs.

Below are some of the types of psychotherapy Kendra utilizes.

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Attachment-Based Family Therapy (ABFT)
  • Art Therapy
  • Collaborative Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
  • Family Attachment Narrative Therapy
  • Gottman Method
  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
  • Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
