Kendra Griffin is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Stafford, VA who works with young adults and adults. She specializes in helping those whose emotions overwhelm them, whether it’s feelings of shame, anxiety, worry, guilt, or sadness. Often, these emotions are tied up with relationship conflicts like those with family members and are caused by trauma. Kendra is passionate about working with diverse clients from all cultural backgrounds.
Kendra supports clients to grow their ability to regulate their emotions, finding ways to meet their needs in healthy ways centered around well-being. She practices cognitive-behavioral therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), teaching clients how to promote positive self-talk instead of resorting to cognitive distortions or self-criticism. She also practices Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, which has been proven to be effective at helping people overcome traumatic memories.
Kendra earned a Master’s degree in Social Work and has nearly 10 years of experience as a therapist. Her style is empathetic, respectful, and positive. She endeavors to show clients that they’re naturally resilient and can cope with difficult feelings that arise throughout their lives.
