Hi! I am Dr. Siyuan Kennedy, also known as Karen.
Life is a journey, and you are not alone. It is my honor and blessing to walk with you in your current season of life.
In the past 10 years, I have worked at various settings in the United States, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in state of Mississippi. I have a doctoral degree in professional counseling, and I believe that counseling can facilitate people to develop new insights or skills. It is my joy to help others to achieve their goals and to maximize their potential.
I have worked with clients of all ages, including children, adolescents, young adults and elders. I can speak English, Cantonese, and Mandarin fluently. I can speak some Japanese as well. When I work with my clients, I see us as a team working together towards a mutual therapeutic goal. It is important to value each individual with kindness and respect.
Your life matters on this earth. I believe that you have purpose and there is greatness inside you. My goal is to help people live a life of fulfillment, joy, hope, and meaning.
Look forward to working with you!
Have a blessed day!

She’s very thoughtful and gentle with her responses. I had her 2 years ago as a therapist and I stopped my sessions because she was so helpful, but as time passed , I felt the need to come back and I only wanted her. It feels like home and I appreciate her thoughtfulness.

Dr. Kennedy is a good therapist. She listens and offers detailed solutions to trouble coping. She has helped me to know that setting boundaries is a good thing. We have to take care of ourselves to take care of others.

I have shown such great progress from the moment I chose to work with Dr. Kennedy to now. It has not been that long but I feel and see a great difference! She does really well with breaking down what we need to work on based on what I need help with, and if I don't fully understand something, she gracefully explains it to where we are always on the same page! She is also very patient and kind! I absolutely love working with Dr. Kennedy!
