Kendra Hovey, MSW, Intern

(she, her, hers)

Currently in her final year of the Master's of Social Work program at The Ohio State University, Kendra brings extensive experience in the non-profit sector working with people and communities impacted by the justice system. She is passionate about reframing therapy. Dispelling the myth that it is about what is “wrong,” Kendra believes therapy is about stepping into strengths and into clarity. She is particularly interested in depth psychology, somatic practices, and individual and cultural trauma. She practices with an awareness that trauma responses and coping mechanisms are not pathologies, rather they are the self’s powerful protective response to a threat. She works with clients to better manage coping mechanisms that have become unhelpful and to develop new and helpful coping strategies. Kendra holds an advanced degree in Art Education from The Ohio State University and a BA in Philosophy from Occidental College.

Kendra is currently seeing clients at the self-pay intern discount rate of $60 a session. More information can be found here.
