Kendra Hypolite

MSW, lSW

Psychotherapist

Kendra brings a feminist, trauma informed, social justice perspective to her clinical work. She aims to ensure that all her clients feel respected and are given autonomy throughout their therapeutic process. She approaches her work with a sense of cultural humility which means acknowledging that clients are in control of their own narrative. She is committed to building therapeutic relationships that are supportive and affirming for queer and trans* folks.

 

Kendra specializes in working with people of color, folks of West Indian/Caribbean heritage, women, veterans, and students. She hopes that the space that she helps create for her clients is one where they can safely process their experiences, achieve personal growth, and find tools to help them move throughout the world.
