Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Hi, I'm Kendyl (she/her) and I am passionate about supporting people who are struggling and want to feel better.

Practicing Since: 2010
I especially enjoy working with folks who are motivated to identify and release old patterns that are no longer serving them well. Together, we will leverage insight and self-compassion to find healthier, more sustainable ways to reach your goals. It can be hard to set aside time and resources for self-care, but you are worth it! Whenever you are ready to reach out, I would love to meet you.
Pregnancy is a time of great excitement and possibility, but it is also physically and emotionally demanding and can be stressful or frightening, particularly for those with a history of trauma. I am passionate about helping individuals* experience all stages of pregnancy from a place of choice and empowerment. (*Not all who are pregnant identify as women; I recognize and affirm all identities.)
The experience of infertility may be the hardest thing an individual or couple has ever faced. I have a deep understanding of the toll it can take on a person's energy, mood, relationships, sense of worth, finances, and more. I can help you reclaim a sense of balance and strength so that you can continue working hard toward your dream of building your family.
I have 20+ years of experience living, working and volunteering within the queer community. I am familiar with many of the unique challenges faced by LGBTQ+ individuals and their families, and I also understand that your LGBTQ+ identity may have nothing at all to do with why you are seeking therapy. Either way, you and your relationships will be seen, valued and respected without exception.
I am deeply sensitive to the unrelenting challenges faced by those who have been assigned a gender that conflicts with their lived experience. I consider it a privilege to support clients in bridging this conflict to whatever extent they choose, from explorations of identity and experiences through social and medical transitions.
Past trauma has a way of sneaking up on us, sometimes in ways we expect and sometimes seemingly out of nowhere. It can be disorienting and frightening both to us and our loved ones. You do not have to be held hostage by your past experiences. I can help you regain a sense of safety and empowerment that will have a positive impact on all areas of your life.
