Kendra Pinkelman, MA, LMHC

Clinical Therapist


It is not an uncommon complaint in current times to feel disconnected from others, overwhelmed in daily life and a general feeling of isolation. I work with clients to alleviate these feelings, improve upon their self care, and identify the thoughts and beliefs that may be an obstacle to their growth.  I help them reconnect with themselves, the Earth and community around them by using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Ecotherapy (MBE). I use trauma focused therapy techniques to process associated problems when they are present.
 
Being a mother, I understand the symptoms that start during pregnancy or after childbirth that can make family stress worse. The first step to coping with these changes is to recognize how normal and common they are. I do this by using humor, warmth, and general education on parenting topics. The strength of the therapeutic relationship is one of the more important aspects of therapy and as such, is a primary focus for me.

 
I have been working in mental health agencies since 2013 and completed my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health at the University of Tennessee. I am an outdoor enthusiast and gardener. I believe in healthy eating and consistent exercise and am a proud mother of two young girls. I pride myself on being a very open minded individual and love welcoming many cultures and people from different spiritual backgrounds into my sessions.
