The therapeutic process helps clients better understand their thoughts and feelings thus promoting self-knowledge, alleviation of pain, higher self esteem , enhanced relationships, control over life changes, and increased quality of life.
I believe that therapy is a journey of exploration, self-discovery, insight and healing taken in the presence of a trusted therapist who offers nurturance, safety and acceptance. My name is Dr. Chantal Kendall. I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist. In my practice I work with adults, adolescents, children and their families. My therapeutic approach is psychodynamic and humanistic while incorporating cognitive behavioral techniques as needed. With each client a unique collaborative relationship is developed to identify specific treatment expectations, needs, and goals.

Hello and welcome! I'm Sandra. As a first-generation Chinese immigrant, building confidence around self-expression took decades of career changes, relationship endings, and unlearning old beliefs. I was privileged to work with veterans in a pharmacy setting and experience runway modeling, all of which are humbling experiences that made me a more assertive communicator. Becoming a therapist forced me to confront the imposter in me that I must hold myself with compassion to build meaningful connections. If you are willing to share your story, I am ready to listen!

I strive to create a connection that allows clients to be themselves and feel safe to work through any obstacles in their path. Utilizing a strengths-based approach, I work with clients to build confidence and skills to navigate life stressors and to create a life they can’t wait to wake up to.

I am a clinical psychologist with 25+ years of experience helping individuals work through anxiety, depression, and more general life issues related to personal growth, self-esteem, and relationships. For those struggling with panic, excessive worrying, social anxiety, or intrusive, unwanted, fearful thoughts, I offer strategies that have been found to be highly effective in managing emotional distress. This also includes finding ways to turn towards and sit with uncomfortable emotions as attempts to resist these emotions often leads to more suffering.

I am dedicated to helping clients gain more insight, balance, and happiness in their lives. Together we can uncover underlying reasons for symptomatic behaviors and emotions and address those to learn healthier, more productive and beneficial ways to deal with challenging situations. As a transpersonal therapist, my goal is to help clients gain greater self-knowledge and richer inner lives. Identifying areas of concern and learning ways to heal and triumph adversity can be challenging; however, I believe that together we can produce meaning from them and become resilient.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
