Dr. Kennedy's Approach
Helping you realize your personal definition of "success" is his forte.
Making himself unnecessary the next time life throws you a curveball? That's his passion.
Dr. Kennedy has been working as Clinical Psychologist since 1995 .
Since 1995 he's worked with murderers, football players, rape survivors, prisoners, doctors, abused children, pilots, gymnasts, shoplifters, MMA fighters, inmates, soldiers, dancers, hairdressers, CEOs, police officers, doctors, battered wives, and companies large and small.
There is almost no aspect of security, violence, victimization, sports, performance, efficiency, or safety with which he is unfamiliar.
He'll comfort, consult, clinically assess you, or kick your butt into gear-- whichever is applicable.
My goal with every client is to do myself out of a job as quickly and effectively as I can by teaching people to become their own psychologists. I use cognitive behavioral and eastern psychological tools such as mindfulness training in order to help people grow, heal, improve their functioning and reduce their suffering.
Often treatment starts with helping people be able to tolerate unpleasant thoughts and emotions despite the natural inclination to get away from them. Then clients free themselves to look at the beliefs and assumptions that go along with those feelings.
They learn to test those beliefs and determine how useful those beliefs are.
Clients empower themselves to change the beliefs that cause them harm, curb the behaviors that are no longer adaptive, and react differently to the beliefs that are difficult to change.
