Your healing partner, Dr. Kenzslowe, is a doctoral level practitioner who creates a personal treatment plan for each patient which may utilize some or all the following treatment modalities:

In addition to Trauma, PTSD, Depression, and anxiety PHBH also assists patients with weight management, nutrition, sleep hygiene, assertive communication, and SMART goals to assist with total life satisfaction and overall peace and joy.

PHBH promotes total life healing. We appreciate that you are the “expert of you”- we will partner with you to assist you in understanding yourself at a deeper level so that your future self will be thankful, hopeful, and able to enjoy your human experience. While we are not a faith based agency, we will incorporate your faith and beliefs into your treatment as much or as little as you prefer.

We value culture and diversity- so much so that we understand that every individual is different – gender, age, race, cultural background, income level, region of the US, or country of origin, profession, parental status, only child vs large family, educational background, veteran status, introvert vs extrovert and many additional attributes are taken into consideration. We do not treat the diagnosis- we treat the person.

At Purple Heart Behavioral Health, LLC your mental health care is provided by a psychologist who is a doctoral level practitioner.

How Do Psychologists Differ from other Therapists?

A clinical psychologist has had specialized training in graduate school over the course of several years and earned a doctorate degree. A psychologist must complete a one year internship in a mental health setting and most often will complete an additional year of training post doctorate. Psychologists are a select group with rigorous training requirements, including having done original research and using evidence-based techniques. Psychologists have the most stringent ethics code of the mental health professions and are not allowed to ask for testimonials or endorsements nor to make guarantees of future outcomes for our patients. These rules are meant to protect your confidentiality and talk about realistic outcomes.

At Purple Heart Behavioral Health, LLC we work with conservative ethics to protect our patients from harm. Our goal is to provide you the tools to gain your joy and peace with total life healing in the safest way possible.
