Lindsay Kenna is a Masters Level Registered Social Worker (RSW) and Certified Sexologist. She specializes in individual, relationship and sex therapy and brings an exceptional ability to offer direct and sincere feedback and guidance balanced by her genuinely compassionate nature. Her clinical interests include increasing intimacy and desire, enhancing pleasure, resolving relationship issues, overcoming infidelity, improving communication and trust, non-monogamous relationships, BDSM and kink, and sexuality across the lifespan. Committed to helping clients reclaim their sexuality, he works with people of all sexual orientations and cultural backgrounds to discover their optimal sexual wellness.
Lindsay is a three-time graduate from the University of Waterloo, where she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in the Sexuality, Marriage and Family program, an Honours Bachelor of Social Work Degree and a Master’s of Social Work Degree. She also holds a certificate in the Intensive Sex Therapy Training program from the University of Guelph. Lindsay is a member in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Services Workers (OCSWSSW), the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) and she is a Certified Sexologist with the American College of Sexologists (ACS).
She’s committed to working with clients in finding ways to balance their emotional, mental, and physical well-being with today’s busy lifestyles. She believes that a good therapeutic relationship is essential for the counselling process to be successful. Tailoring each treatment to her unique client’s needs and adhering to evidence-based practice, Lindsay’s clinical style combines genuine warmth and guidance toward effective and lasting solutions.
A lifelong learner, she often pulls from the works of John and Julie Gottman, Imago Therapy and Esther Perel in her client work to help them identify and breakdown unhelpful communication patterns, rebuild intimacy, and create the sex lives and relationships they want.
Lindsay uses many tools in helping individuals better their mental health. One tool is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy—an evidence-based approach effective in helping clients to challenge negative thought patterns and behaviours. Another tool Lindsay uses is Clinical Hypnotherapy. She incorporates this technique to help clients conquer anxiety, manage stress, improve sleep and break bad habits, as well as in addressing sexuality concerns like erectile dysfunction, rapid ejaculation, performance anxiety, and vaginismus.
In her spare time, Lindsay enjoys time with her dog Scout getting outside—kayaking, swimming, and camping. She feels most at peace by water, whether that’s sitting on a dock, laying on the beach, or floating in waves. She’s also a believer in the power of great daily self-care where she does strength-training, yoga, catching up on mindless TV shows, reading, and connecting with friends.
