When Kendall welcomes you into a session, you’ll find a safe space where you’ll be supported, as well a space for confrontation and more direct interventions, depending on your need and comfort level. When appropriate, you’ll enjoy a sense of levity and humor to help what may feel unbearable to feel a bit more bearable—possibly even fun.
Kendall takes an experiential approach to therapy, providing her clients opportunities to explore new ways of being with themselves and relating to others. This can take the form of guided visualizations, movement or expressive arts interventions, or having a conversation with an opportunity to reflect.
Her clients can overcome a variety of issues, like anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and the loss of meaning or purpose. She often utilizes body- and movement-based interventions to support clients in self-regulation and exploration. She also utilizes active and reflective listening, and offers simple, practical tools for clients to use in their day-to-day life. She draws from person-centered modalities, body-based psychotherapy training, as well as DBT, existential, and feminist theories and practices.
With a Master’s degree in dance/movement therapy and counseling, Kendall has worked in acute mental health settings, and with children with developmental delays and disabilities.
