ABOUT Kendra Simbeck-Portillo

With this experience, Kendra utilizes Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT). Kendra helps with setting goals, self-help, and muscle relaxation. Kendra loves to promote mental health awareness and help others overcome their difficult times. In Kendra's free time, she loves to read mystery books, watch television, work out at the gym, and spend time with her cats.

We shouldn’t treat mental health conditions any differently. Instead, we should make it clear that getting help isn’t a sign of weakness — it’s a sign of strength — and we should ensure that people can get the treatment they need. - Anonymous
