Kendra A

My name is Kendra Artis and I am a Resident in Counseling from Chesapeake, Virginia.  I have over 18 years of experience working with specialized populations to include adults with mental health issues, adults with intellectual disabilities, and children with behavioral and mental health issues.  I earned a Master of Arts in Urban Education and Community Counseling from Norfolk State University in 2012.

I am passionate about helping individuals with navigating the difficulties of mental health, communication, and adjustment demands.  I can assist individuals in increasing skills that may lead to an overall improvement in their level of functioning. I specialize in working with individuals or groups in building self-esteem, developing effective coping skills, stress and anger management, interpersonal skills, problem-solving, family discord, and effective communication skills. I strive to create an environment that allows for personal growth and exploration.  I believe that true Optimum health requires the mind, body, and spirit to be in balance.

Some of my favorite theoretical approaches to counseling include Existential Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, Motivational Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy.  I like to use an eclectic approach to therapy to meet the needs of the individual.
