About Me

I am a License Professional Counselor with over 20 years of experience working in helping professions. I have a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. I’ve had an opportunity to work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, bipolar disorder and psychotic disorders to name a few.

Generally speaking, my theoretical approach will be Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. This doesn’t mean I don’t incorporate other therapeutic approaches. You’re an individual therefore I don’t attempt to force a particular framework.

I am an active listener who enjoys supporting clients with self-discovery and development of personal goals. It’s amazing how beneficial it can be to speak with someone unbiased, nonjudgmental and eager to be supportive. I’ve had a client tell me they wish they could carry me in their back pocket. This was in relation to the thought provoking questions and encouragement I provide to those I work with. It’s amazing being a part of a process where people learn, grow and develop based on their standards and ideas of success. You know your life better than anyone else. Sometimes as humans, we need assistance in realizing this. I look forward to being a part of that process if given the opportunity.

Take care in the meantime.

Kenya is my second therapist on BetterHelp. She is so responsive and gives great “homework” that you are easily able to apply to your life. I appreciate her. I should connect with her more often but that’s something I’m working on. Regardless, she’s great.

I have had such positive and empowering support from Kenya. I was ready to quit my job due to the situation I was facing where I work. Kenya made me feel validated and heard...and most of all she helped me realize I was stronger than I had realized. I'm on the path back to my core beliefs, my core strengths and my core ethics. I work in the field of mental health - Kenya is a brilliant and shining example of what true therapist is! I am so blessed that I have the opportunity to collaborate with her. She rocks!!

I feel extremely supported by my new counselor Kenya and I really feel like she understands me and I feel a comfort after our sessions. I do wish sessions could be longer but other than that and with living in the time of COVID-19 I couldn’t think of a better way to support my mental health than with a platform like this.
