Many people grow up in dysfunction and therefore they relate in inappropriate ways. Clients that I have helped the most typically relate to these dysfunctional ways: They guess at what normal is. They judge themselves without mercy. They have difficulty relaxing and enjoying life. They have difficulty with intimate relationships. They over-react to changes over which they have no control. They constantly seek approval and affirmation. They feel that they are different from other people. They avoid conflict or aggravate it; rarely do they deal with it. They fear failure, but sabotage their success.

I have a particular passion and talent for working with young adults/teenagers, specifically regarding behavioral issues, suicidal ideation and self-injury behaviors. I use a casual approach to build rapport to empower all clients to find their voice and manifest their goals. I also specialize in working with problematic sexual behaviors/ addictions, clients who identify in the LBGTQIA+ community, and clients with complex traumas and relational/intimacy deficits. I believe you will find my natural warmth both inclusive and approachable while affirming each individual's personal and cultural needs.

Therapy is writing your own story as we embrace the ‘self as inherently fluid’ and that all individuals are capable of crafting new and empowering stories that include a new sense of self. This is a healing journey, and I'm here to connect with you to explore together the trauma, grief, and other challenging life experiences that prevent you from healing, growing and living the fulfilling life you are seeking.

My approach to treatment includes a combination of both Cognitive-Behavioral and Narrative theories. These two approaches aim to look at how thoughts and ideas influence emotions and effect behaviors and decisions. In addition, this approach attempts to separate the problem from the individual and often uses homework assignments, journaling, and mindfulness exercises as therapeutic interventions. I believe that the counseling experience is a sacred one. You, as the client, have the power to make healthy and helpful choices in your life. It is my role to assist you in this journey.

Do you find that small, unforeseeable incidents trigger intense emotions you’re unable to cope with? It may feel like your life is a struggle. You do your best to cope with it all, but you cannot seem to find a balance. What’s more, you’ve experienced a traumatic experience in your life, and you’re not sure how to move forward. As an LGBTQI+ individual, it feels as though you don’t fit anywhere in the world. Living life with a negative outlook can be difficult, and it feels as though every thought spirals into a worse one. Know that you’re not alone.

Passionate about working with individuals who want to explore and connect with a more authentic sense of self as a basis for defining their lives, work lives and roles in the larger community. I offer a blend of personal and career counseling to provide a holistic approach to career and life planning. My typical client is interested in finding direction and fulfillment, but is overwhelmed or discouraged. Focusing on personal issues or mental health concerns can reduce barriers to moving forward. We can work on defining purpose and direction, handling stress and tackling career exploration and job search.

Life and living only exist in the present moment. Our untrained mind often causes us suffering when it dwells on past experiences, or future fears, clouding this moment where living actually occures. Depression, anxiety, our beliefs about our selves and others, all stem from these unnecessary thoughts and their related emotions. Our mind must come to realize that it is the cause of its own unhappiness. Then whatever we experience in life is no longer overwhelming. I have an appreciation and grounding in western oriented psychodynamics enriched with an eastern psychological and Spiritual perspective. Please visit my website: kennethandert.com

At Carewell we focus on creating healthy relationships, including the one you have with yourself. Let us help you through this challenging time. If you have anxiety issues we will develop coping strategies — especially important during COVID 19. Navigating a divorce, blended family issues, those enduring narcissistic abuse, are all particularly vulnerable during this time when we are having so much togetherness. Adults find support at Carewell via Telehealth and people with support do better.

My goal is to provide a space for you to learn about yourself, grow as a person, and develop and work toward goals that feel relevant and doable. We can work on developing healthy coping strategies for current stressors, or increasing understanding around past experiences. I enjoy working with people toward discovering values, unearthing inner strengths, practicing healthy boundaries, and developing self-compassion. I will ask for your honest feedback throughout the therapy process so that I can adjust my approach as needed.

Impossible is temporary. As a relational psychologist specializing in issues like trauma and addictions, I have learned this time and time again. The combination of a supportive relationship, motivation to change well-worn patterns, and clear, concrete guidance can lead to changes far beyond what people believe is possible. Sometimes it seems "impossible" to live a deeper, more connected existence. We may carry scars of rejection and betrayal that keep us from being our truest selves. We heal in the context of genuine, warm, accepting relationships that also encourage us to take risks. I so enjoy building these relationships.

There is hope! Things can be better... I like to begin with an idea of how things might be improve in a client's life, if the identified problems were addressed. Together, we will find paths to healing. My pragmatic, nurturing approach seems to help clients who are struggling with feelings of being overwhelmed or just plain stuck. I believe that my clients deserve to be heard and participate actively in their therapeutic process to facilitate great change.

Please, grab your favorite chair or a cozy blanket, and let’s ponder that... Maybe you’re frayed and exhausted because you’ve worked against the odds all your life, and you needed to stay strong - the glue to keep everything running smoothly or everyone happy. Now the irritability is boiling over, and the emptiness feels achy. “Moving on” or “getting over it” doesn't work for you. Thinking you’re bad or something wrong with you keeps creeping into your thoughts, and it feels defeating. You’re finally tired of that same old story and ready to tell a fresh and rewarding one.

As a parent, there is nothing more frustrating than watching your child struggle. You want them to enjoy their adolescence and strive towards their potential… yet they appear stressed out, gloomy or just apathetic about everything. You might lecture or give them advice, but that seems to create a larger wedge between you. Or even sets them off. You’re caught in a cycle of tension and aggression with the person you love the most. And all you want is to see them smile again. I can help you.

My apologies, however, my waitlist is currently closed. I will edit this profile when that changes. I especially enjoy working with individuals who have experienced "outsider status" and are on a journey to create a sense of belonging in their own way and style. Many of my patients are creatives who experience hindrances in connecting with their creative energies and seek ways to more fully nourish and honor these aspects of Self.
