About me

Hey there!

If you are reading this, congratulations! You have taken a wonderful first step towards hope, health and self care!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been in the Mental Health field in various capacities for 8 years in a variety of settings---the last 6 as a counselor licensed by the states of Arkansas, Missouri, and North Dakota. I have also recently added additional states due to COVID-19 emergency licensing to help states in demand of mental health services. This variety of experience has given me the opportunity to gain valuable skills to help others reach their goals and full potential. Some of my areas of most experience are Depression, Anxiety, Life Changes, and Relationships---though I have also worked with anger management, mood disorders, self-esteem, trauma issues, etc.

I am also an ally and affirming provider for individuals who identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community.

We all know at times that life has a way of getting us down, throwing us curveballs, or leaving us feeling broken. Whether it is issues from day-to-day life, or issues from past traumas-- it can truly weigh us down. It is my mission to take this journey alongside you, help you carry that load, and find the best way for you to surrender it in a healthy and therapeutic manner.

My ultimate goal is to help you work towards the best version of yourself and get you to a place that you can live a more full and healthy life- free of burdens.

I look forward to learning more about you soon and helping you take the steps to a better you!

Nonjudgmental and understanding, I cannot imagine going through life without her. She is someone you can trust and rely on.

Written on Jun 08, 2022 after therapy with Kendyl for 2 years and 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

I have tried traditional therapy and online therapy through two other counseling services. Never have I had such great rapport as I have found Kendyl. Whether we are talking about small daily concerns or major childhood traumas that I am horrified to share with another human being, Kendyl is always compassionate. She never makes me feel judged. The conversations that I have with Kendyl have been so helpful that I referred my friends to BetterHelp.

Kendyl is absolutely amazing, she creates a platform that allows you to express yourself freely and she guides you in the right direction to find clarity on a large scope! In a short period she inspired me to look out for myself and do what's best for me. She is a great counselor.

She is very helpful. My life has gotten easier, but I still can’t imagine not having her to talk to every day. Even if I don’t check in, she checks in with me, anyway to see how things are going.

Kendyl is very easy to talk to and I dont feel pressured to move in any direction I am not ready for. She knows I am struggling currently and has checked in on me during my withdrawn phase and it helped me find the courage to keep working on me. She is now part of my support team and I am excited to continue to work with her.

Kendyl is one of a kind. She's goofy when the time calls for it, but when it's time to buckle down and be serious about topics, she can switch gears and handle what needs it. She's pretty great!

Written on Oct 25, 2019 after therapy with Kendyl for 2 weeks on issues concerning self esteem

When Kendyl and I chat, I feel understood and respected which, in turn, boosts my self-confidence. At the same time, she challenges me to explain to her what drives some of my thoughts, and these challenges often lead to insights. I highly recommend Kendyl as a counselor.

Work with me!
