Not Accepting New Clients at This Time!

Kennesha Rodgers (she/her/hers) is a graduate student at Eastern University in the Clinical Counseling, Trauma program. She spent several years working as a social worker before transitioning to personal development coaching and Project Management. Kennesha likes working with clients of diverse backgrounds and experiences and has a particular interest in those working through issues of self-empowerment, trauma, and grief.

Kennesha considers herself fortunate to have had access to wonderful therapy and coaching and understands firsthand how healing work can lead to hope, freedom, and possibility. This is why she has a passion for making therapy and personal development accessible to under-resourced communities. She believes that everyone should have access to healing and loves being a supportive presence for others on their journey.

Kennesha takes an integrated, trauma-informed approach to therapy. She loves to explore her client’s stories and believes that therapy should involve the whole person: mind, body, and emotions. Kennesha sees herself as a partner with her clients, working together for their empowerment and supporting them as they access their own inner wisdom. Trauma does not get the final say. With curiosity, honesty, hope and safety, new beautiful stories can be written.

Kennesha is so happy to have found a home at the Phoenix Trauma Center and looks forward to continuing her development as a therapist as she immerses herself in EMDR, psychodrama, narrative therapy, and other experiential modalities. She holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park. She is a certified Enneagram Coach and loves to integrate this tool for self-understanding into her professional, coaching, and therapeutic work. Kennesha is excited to return to the helping field as a therapist – a lifelong dream finally becoming reality.

Kennesha’s typical fee is $85 for individual therapy (53 min); she can work on a flexible sliding scale if needed.
