RRT with Kendra Simpkins

Kendra Simpkins is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and owns Sarasota Rapid Resolution Therapy. She works with Dr. Jon Connelly, the founder of Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT). RRT is an innovative short-term therapy that clears emotional disturbances such as PTSD, sexual trauma, guilt and grief.

Kendra regularly travels nationwide to train other mental health professionals in RRT. She believes in the holistic approach to mind and body healing and offers trauma-informed yoga, as well as Access Consciousness Bars to clear the physiological effects of trauma. You can reach Kendra at 941-504-3040. Kendra Simpkins employed a technique that, without even talking about the trauma in detail, trains the brain to process a memory differently so it can no longer produce the same emotional reaction.

“Earlier this year, Kendra Simpkins, a military veteran turned clinical social worker, received a call at her Sarasota practice from a frantic mother whose son suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of combat situations during multiple deployments. Over the first three of 12 scheduled weeks of “exposure therapy” at the VA — a method designed to desensitize a patient to past trauma by “reliving” the stressful experience — the mother said she had seen her son grow progressively worse, to the degree that she now feared for his safety.”
