JP Kendrick, LMSW

Licensed Master Social Worker

We are all unique, complex beings with unique, complex lives.  Many of us find ourselves struggling and we may feel stuck.  We may not understand what is happening or, more importantly, what to do to make things better – to feel better.  We may feel lost, hopeless, frightened, anxious, depressed, or angry and have no idea where to begin.  Therapy may provide the answers and solutions you seek, just as it does for countless people, every single day.

 

I collaborate and partner with my clients to create a judgement free and sacred space that enables them to be safely curious about their worlds; both the one in which they exist and the one that exists in them.  Exploring and learning to understand the ways in which these worlds intersect can be a key to unlocking doors of insight and healing or begin to bring an end to unnecessary suffering.  My approach is one that focuses on meeting each individual where they are and moving forward with them on a path of healing.  There is a way forward for you. Let us discuss how we may work together to find your path, clear the way, and set you in motion in a new direction.

Background 

 

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker and obtained my Master’s in Clinical Social Work, Summa cum laude,  from Baylor University.  I am currently being trained as a NARM (Neuro Affective Relational Model) Therapist and have worked in the residential and outpatient settings and have 15 years of experience working with people in addiction recovery.  I treat adults from age 18 up and my approach is trauma-informed.  I specialize in complex and acute trauma, addiction(s), personality disorders, depression, anxiety, life stage issues, professional upheaval, and interpersonal issues.  I am LGBTQ++ friendly and able to communicate effectively and adaptively with most people.

 

My approach is psychodynamically oriented and focuses on developing insight and employing agency in the work.  I view the work through a lens of empowerment and utilize a person-centered approach in order to help individuals determine and address their needs and wants for themselves.  I also incorporate CBT, DBT, narrative therapy, IFS, mentalization, and MI into my work with individual adults.

 

I have been a professional working musician for almost 30 years and have been a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist.  I enjoy this creative outlet and enjoy connecting with others who have artistic passion as well.  Additionally, I worked for almost a decade as a corporate RPO recruiter serving clients like Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, and Nissan North America.

 

Contact me for a free, brief consultation and we can discuss your needs and wants for yourself and determine if we would work well together.

 

Rates: $175 for 50 minute session

The above rate is the full fee this therapist charges for a standard 50 minute session. However, we do not want cost to be prohibitive of people getting the help they need. All of our therapists provide a portion of their services for a reduced fee to help those who can benefit from psychotherapy but might not be able to afford their full fee.
