Kendra approaches therapy with the goal of client-centered treatment. An eclectic approach allows Kendra to address the needs of patients individually and truly meet clients where they’re starting. Kendra takes the time to actively listen and reflect client’s experiences in order to discern the evidence based therapeutic interventions and resources appropriate and helpful to work toward achieving their identified goals.
Through a combination of CBT, DBT, solution focused, and supportive therapy techniques, Kendra takes a trauma-focused approach to Integration. Kendra provides psychoeducation around Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy to help normalize and validate the experiences of her clients, allowing them to feel heard and understood in a way other supports may not be able to. Perspective taking and energetic exploration allows Kendra to help her patients heal and work towards improved functioning in their lives.
Kendra engages in a psychodynamic approach to help clients become aware of and understand unconscious conflict. Kendra encourages mindfulness and increased self-awareness through breathwork, positive visualization, body scans, and non-judgmental awareness to build internal skills that work to address coping and regulation both during and outside of infusion sessions.
