Vancouver Wellness Studio (VWS) is a unique place for whole-person healthcare in Vancouver, Washington and something I would LOVE to have in my community! I am so excited today to share my interview with Kendall Hagenson, Clinical Director at VWS.
VWS is a dynamic team of holistic health professionals who work together to provide quality, cohesive care for the mind, body, and spirit.
The VWS team is passionate about working in community and for community through individual services and community offerings.
VWS is proud to have created a healing environment where, whether you are receiving care from one or all of our practitioners, you will have the support of the whole team.
VWS believes that creativity, art, movement, and gathering as a group are all integral pieces to the wellness puzzle.
Kendall Hagensen is a Somatic or Body-Oriented Mental Health Therapist. She is also trained in EMDR, which means that she utilizes our innate mind-body connection as a tool in counselling. Kendall specializes in, and is passionate about, working with adults of all ages living with Chronic Pain and Medical Illnesses. These almost always have a psychological component, whether it be a new diagnosis or chronic condition. Using EMDR, body awareness, breath-work, movement, as well as talk therapy, Kendall works with clients to manage pain and develop a healthy relationship with their illness. Kendall’s practice expertise also includes anxiety and stress management; depression; and career issues. As someone who lives with a chronic illness herself, Kendall feels that health happens best within community, which is why she takes a holistic, integrative, and collaborative wellness approach to her personal and professional life. Kendall is also the Clinical Director at VWS.
