Audra Kennedy

17 years of experience

I believe in the importance of treating the whole person: body, mind, spirit. My approach is empowering you to make your own decisions, to help you set your own goals and to walk with you on your journey to health. I specialize in women's issues: self image, hormonal changes, sexual issues including desire issues, pain and trauma. Other issues addressed both male and female: relationships, anxiety, depression, grief & loss. I want to partner with you on your journey to mental health and wellness.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

After getting acquainted with each other, I will partner with you to set goals, educate you about the specifics of what may be happening in your body and/or brain and walk with you on the journey to be the person you want to be. The number of sessions varies from person to person and I prefer to see you every week or every other week until we get to a maintenance phase where we taper to once a month and then every few months depending on your needs.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is the foundation for successful treatment no matter the type of therapy.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is a widely respected and evidence-based therapeutic approach that focuses on changing negative thought patterns and behaviors to improve mental health.


EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, is a psychotherapy approach designed to help individuals process and heal from traumatic experiences, distressing memories, and other emotional disturbances. EMDR involves bilateral stimulation, which can be in the form of side-to-side eye movements, taps, or auditory tones (for telehealth the client will see my screen with a light that will move left to right, right to left). This bilateral stimulation is thought to mimic the natural process of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, during which the brain processes and integrates information.
