  • STEPS: From Anxiety to Resilience
  • Riding Out the Waves: Anxiety summer camps
  • Taming Worry – children’s group

Kendall is a Registered Social Worker with the Saskatchewan Association of Social Workers (SASW) and holds a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from the University of Regina.

Before moving to Saskatoon, Kendall grew up in rural Saskatchewan where she lived with her parents and younger brother. Kendall pays homage to her small-town living as a reflection of the values she places on the community, collaboration, and maintaining strong connections.

Kendall has a special love for supporting at-risk children and youth, which she explains began during her work at the Haven Kids’ House (Formally the Saskatoon Crisis Nursery). Kendall values the provision of both trauma-informed and strengths-based perspectives in practice, which she demonstrates in her role as a Community Program Coordinator.

Kendall is passionate about providing psychoeducational and holistic arts-based methods to the demographics that she serves. She believes these methods of intervention can help build resilience, self-esteem, mindfulness, self-awareness, healthy coping strategies, and social skills.

When she isn’t out in the community supporting children and youth, Kendall can be found cuddling with her dog Wrigley, baking, crafting, and sharing her love for all things Harry Potter.
