Kendra T. Brown, Ph.D. is a licensed Psychologist in Stuart, Florida where she has enjoyed a thriving private practice for over twenty years. Her therapy is primarily solution oriented, working collaboratively with her clients, constructing strategies and techniques to help them achieve their goals. She is the author of: Eavesdropping: As Real Women Talk About the Gifts and Challenges of Aging (published by Rainbow Books in 2012 and currently in its second printing, available on Amazon.com). This book was born out of Brown’s passion for empowering women of all ages. The lively discussions in Eavesdropping were re-creations of a group project she started in 2009, which continued for three years. Before earning her Ph.D. from the University of Memphis, she was a teacher in special education and the field director of human resources for a large company. Dr. Brown has lectured, taught and written in the fields of psychology, sports enhancement, human resources, and hypnosis. She continues to market her book through public speaking, appearances at libraries and book clubs, as a sponsor for local NPR, and through a monthly newsletter on her website: www.kendrabrownphd.com .
