At Baylor’s Mind Body Medicine Research Laboratory, Dr. Kendrick provided hypnotherapy intervention and oversaw the biochemistry arm of an NIH-funded randomized clinical trial examining the effect of hypnosis for hot flashes in postmenopausal women. Her varied clinical training allowed her to work with adolescents and adults at Texas Youth Commission, the Baylor Counseling Center, Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center Inpatient Rehabilitation (now Scott & White Center for Rehabilitative Medicine at Hillcrest), and the VA North Texas Health Care System. In therapeutic treatment of psychological symptoms, Dr. Kendrick seeks to treat each individual from a holistic perspective that considers biological, psychological, and social / environmental factors that influence well-being.
