Kendall has experience working with at-risk youth, young adults, children and their families. She also enjoys working with adults. She has experience working with grief/loss, trauma, the LGBTQ community, self-harm, suicidal ideation, ADHD, behavioral issues, anxiety and depression. She is an integrative therapist who utilizes a
psychodynamic and humanistic theoretical orientation.
Kendall is trained in TF-CBT and EMDR - two of the most researched therapies for resolving unpleasant, painful and/or traumatic life experiences. Kendall also takes a psychodynamic approach which focuses on recognizing, acknowledging, understanding, expressing, and overcoming negative and contradictory feelings and repressed emotions. This includes understanding how repressed earlier emotions affect current decision-making, behavior, and relationships. Clients learn to analyze and resolve their current issues and change their behavior in current relationships through this deep exploration and analysis of earlier experiences and emotions.
Kendall provides individual and family therapy to adolescents and adults.
