I believe the human spirit is incredibly resilient and we all have the innate capacity to heal--I don't view mental health struggles as a sign of defect or "disorder," but rather a signal of unmet basic needs for love, attention, acceptance, and compassion.

Erin Kennedy Practice Description
I take a non-pathologizing approach when working with my clients--that is, our goal in therapy is not to figure out what is "wrong" with you, but to understand what happened to you and how that influences who you are today. Just like humans are multifaceted, our therapeutic work will be holistic, pulling from several therapeutic orientations including psychodynamic, somatic, person-centered, and gestalt. Our work together will help you learn to live from a place of authenticity through cultivating your self-reflective curiosity, self-compassion, and self-acceptance. I strive to meet every client where they're currently at and always aim to show up authentically myself--even though we are doing deep and important work together, it's important to not take ourselves too seriously (and we may even laugh along the way!). When I'm not in client sessions, you can find me learning more about psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, going on a run with my mini-Australian Shepherd pup, or listening to some pop-punk music (MGK, Taking Back Sunday, & Brand New are among my faves).
