Kendra is a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and a Licensed Counselling Therapy Candidate with the College of Counselling Therapists of New Brunswick (CCTNB) with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. Kendra is committed to creating a safe space for clients to discover and explore the patterns and dynamics that get in the way of moving toward desired change. Kendra has specific training to work with couples and families as well as individuals with a broad range of concerns, including: anxiety, managing anger, difficult life transitions, spiritual/faith concerns, grief, loss, emotional overwhelm, stress, relational difficulties and self-worth.
Kendra brings a passion for understanding her clients and a posture of curiosity and inquiry to her work. Among other things, she integrates an emotion focused (EFT) approach to narrative therapy (NT), family systems theory, Gottman Method Couples Therapy (having completed level 1 and 2 training with the Gottman Institute) and self-compassion in order to help clients understand the ways in which the difficulties that show up can start to tell a restrictive and unhelpful story about who they are. Kendra supports her clients to re-write that story and challenge the narratives and patterns that are no longer useful.
Kendra is available for couples, family, and individual counselling for those ages 16 years and up in person or by video.
