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

My Approach

I strive for a balance of therapeutic connection and concrete skill-building, but the amount of each is flexible depending on client needs and preferences. I draw heavily from a cognitive-behavioral model, with elements of narrative therapy, person-centered therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and other evidence-based techniques. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. My highest priority is helping you to reach the things that matter most to you, whatever they may be. For some, that may be a tangible goal or completed task; for others it's increased feelings of safety, clarity, or empowerment. I pride myself on being flexible and responsive to meet my client's unique needs.

My Background

I completed my Master of Social Work degree in 2004 with a concentration in Sexual Health Promotion and Advocacy. I obtained my clinical license in 2007 and continued the work I was already doing with a highly diverse client base in St. Louis, Missouri. I have extensive experience working with people living with or affected by HIV and AIDS. I also have years of experience helping teens and adults in all stages of family-building including infertility, making decisions about abortion or adoption, and early parenting. I offer an affirming environment for ALL people regardless of body size and ability, racial identity, gender identity, relationship status, and sexual behavior.
