Kendra Woody Simmons

LPC

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Addictions Counselor in South Carolina with over 15 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, adolescent issues, and addictions. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have experience working with veterans, active duty military servicemen and women.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and solution focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

She is a wonderful therapist. I enjoy that she checks up on me. I enjoy talking to her she listens to me and helps me understand what I'm feeling.

Kendra is a guiding light in the dark wilderness of my relationship with a narcissistic demon. I am healing but as you can see from my choice of words, I have a ways to go….

Ms. Simmons has been very helpful to me over a very short period of time and I look forward to working with her more! I love how she periodically checks in on me even if we don’t have an appointment to make sure I’m having a good day. It’s the little things like that that make me feel as though I can trust her!

So far I've been loving my sessions with Kendra (she rocks). I love that I can be myself and talk freely about the stress of being a wife, mother, and student. She's really helping me see that even while having all of those titles its okay to not know at times, and it's okay to take time for ME. Thanks for helping me express/breakdown my past issues Kendra.

Kendra has been very encouraging and supportive in our sessions, and she makes it very easy to open up about my feelings and thoughts that I've been bottling in or feel like I have no one else to talk to about. She's provided exercises that help my issues, and even softly challenges me to keep pushing forward. I feel less stressed, and I feel positive about future talks. So far, so good!
