Kena Watson is not currently accepting new clients.

Adjusting to young adulthood can present many with new challenges; "Adulting" represents freedom at best; and overwhelming at worst. My role as a therapist is to walk with you along this pebbled path, and provide a safe space to build resiliency so you can move towards what you truly value. As a Licensed Master's level Psychologist (LPA), I specialize in therapy for anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-esteem and body-image concerns.I also provide support to those with loved ones with an eating disorder, adjustment to college and/or life transitions, and support for enhancing communication/interpersonal skills.

Helping those in my community struggling with racial identity and acculturative stress, as well as helping couples improve their relationships, reconnect and improve communication are also important focuses of my practice.

I use a strengths-based, solution-focused approach through a multicultural framework while incorporating Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I am passionate about promoting the Health at Every Size perspective towards self-acceptance and body appreciation for all body sizes.

Kena Watson's Groups

Vision board wellness events

This wellness event is geared towards helping you to bridge the gap between the "what" and "how" of your personal vision. Engage in connecting with your values while creating a vision board. Not only will your creative juices be allowed to flow, you will also be able to take part of a discussion about barriers to living according to your values and how to stay accountable throughout your journey. Ideal for small private groups of individuals and student organizations. Special modifications for organizational/companies as a team building exercise and for couples retreats wishing to create a joint vision board.
