Trauma Therapist & RCC - Kendra Mulgrew
Meet Kendra ~
After experiencing much mental and physical misery during her early years, Kendra knew there had to be a different way of existing on planet Earth. Thus began her journey of finding community through inner-exploration. After bringing herself to many rock-bottom experiences, she set an intention to do anything and everything possible to tap out of the cycle of pain and suffering she had found herself in. Step by step, breath by breath, she has come to be a witness of this blissful reality experienced always & all ways at this presence moment in space in time. She now lives to help others realize this beautiful experience of life.

About Kendra's Process
Kendra approaches health and wellness from a mind-body-spirit perspective. Although counselling is traditionally thought of as talk-based, psychoanalysis, or talk-therapy (which offer benefits), they only address top-down cognitive processes. That is, they are only addressing the mind. Much research shows the importance of the connection between the mind and the body. Therefore, it is necessary for both the mind and body to be present in the healing process. Through integration of the the body and addressing bottom-up processes, real and sustainable change is attainable.
I would recommend Kendra to anyone. She is an expert at creating a warm and accepting space; allowing you to heal and release the thoughts and energies you need. Her calm, reflective nature permit her to pick up on subtleties and guide your conversation and thoughts towards a new direction.
Kendra is powerful and dedicated in her space. She made it easy for me to settle in with her gentle, loving, and truthful wisdom. I am at a loss to find adequate words to express my deepest gratitude for Kendra. I would recommend her to anybody who is ready to journey beyond their edges. This woman is the real deal!
I was blessed enough to be able to see Kendra. She offers a beautiful space for you to process what is going on in your own mind, helps you heal, and feel the love and patience for yourself. Every time I left feeling more sure of myself. And most importantly more patient. Could always use another session.
