“I believe in creating a safe space for individuals to feel validated and express their true authentic self. Walking with individuals through their journey, it is an honor to have gained their trust.”

Kendra graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a Master’s in Social Work and is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. She has worked in the school setting in the areas of Early Childhood, Elementary, Secondary, and setting 3 Emotional Behavior programs and is trained as a Restorative Justice Circles facilitator. Prior to the school setting, Kendra worked as a social worker in an adoption agency, primarily in international adoption. She has also served on the Human Rights Commission for Brooklyn Park. Throughout her work, Kendra maintains a social justice and culturally responsive approach to meet individuals and families where they are at.

Kendra utilizes mindfulness, strengths based perspective, trauma informed practices, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for individuals to more fully understand the layers of  their identity as they move through life and process and work through any unmet needs and trauma towards setting healthy, attainable goals. Kendra’s experience includes working with concerns relating to trauma and PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, adoption and identity, and life transitions.

Outside of work, Kendra enjoys spending time with her son and puppy Ghost and attending her son’s soccer games. She also enjoys running, reading, kayaking, hiking, and traveling.
