Kendra Defrank


Kendra is an energetic and passionate therapist who specializes in the treatment of eating disorders. She believes in full recovery and utilizes a variety of techniques to help her clients heal. Kendra used to work as a therapist in the Eating Disorder Program at Linden Oaks Hospital and became well known for her effectiveness with body image and self-esteem work. She also has expertise in the resolution of depression, anxiety, and trauma.

Kendra is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). EMDR helps clients heal from trauma, which is really any experience that impacts someone negatively. Sometimes underlying traumas are the catalyst for the development of eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. If this is the case, it is important to heal these traumas in order to fully recover from the other presenting problems.

Kendra works in our New Lenox office as well as in our Naperville location. When Kendra is not doing therapy, she enjoys traveling, cooking, and spending time with her three children.
