How it works

I work with patients individually over Zoom or in person in Portland, Oregon.
I also offer virtual group classes to teach the information in a positive supportive environment which can be more affordable. Some people prefer just working with me individually, others just take the classes. A combination of both can be the most efficient and thorough way to learn the information.

Individual Appointments

Work together on how the model and tools apply to you specifically.

Step 1: Explore

 We discuss your specific history and how this model applies to you.

Step 2: Learn

I teach you the science and tools to make changes. To be efficient with our time, I share other ways to learn and apply the tools:

  • Watch supplementary videos
  • Read books and online resources
  • Join my virtual 8-week class

Step 3: Apply

You use the tools on your own in between appointments, we fine tune them and add more when we meet. My goal is to teach you the tools to ultimately heal yourself. I guide you on this path to a point where you have a full understanding of how the functioning of your nervous system creates physical symptoms and the tools you need to address this effectively throughout your life.

Individual appointments $250/hour

The appointments are generally every 2 weeks.
For someone who has an extensive knowledge of this model, has tried many things but are still ‘stuck’, sometimes only a few visits are needed to round out the missing pieces.
For others who are new to this work, it usually takes longer.

I am currently not accepting new patients. The group class is a good way to learn the information. Please email contact@resilience-healthcare.com to join the waiting list.

Virtual Group Classes

Meet virtually with others for an overview of the science and the tools to heal.

Group classes can be used stand alone or as a supplement to individual appointments. They can be a more affordable option to learn the tools. You’ll experience a validating and supportive environment with a positive focus toward healing.

8-week virtual class series on Zoom

  • Learn the new science of neuroplastic symptoms
  • Explore the tools to get better
  • Support from others with a similar experience
  • Hear others’ recovery stories
  • Attend the class only or together with individual appointments
  • You may join either class regardless of your symptoms if the timing works better for you. They both incorporate the same neuroscience education and tools to improve.

This is for all types of chronic symptoms including non-structurally caused chronic pain, long COVID, chronic fatigue, GI symptoms, anxiety and much more (see conditions treated below).

Dates of General Class: Mondays 1pm PST July 1-August 26 (No class July 29)

Outline of the Classes:

Week 1: introduction to the science. Exploring how it applies to you
Week 2: Self compassion and core beliefs
Week 3: Emotions and expressive writing 
Week 4: Nervous system calming tools: breathing, meditation, sleep
Week 5: Personality traits and boundary setting
Week 6: Neural reprocessing therapy
Week 7: Movement
Week 8: Moving your life forward

Structure of the Classes:

  • Video to watch prior to each class about the week’s subject
  • Class time with Q&As, experiences and exercises together
  • Activities to do between each class

Cost: $295/series. Please contact me if the cost is prohibitive.

“Multiple tests, specialists and interventions provided temporary relief but nothing that was dependable or would last. When I was finally referred to Dr. Kennedy, I was hopeful but not convinced she would have “answers.” What I learned from her has changed my life. What I learned was that the chronic pain I was experiencing was a mis-firing of pain messages from my brain, triggered by fear and decades old programming not to trust my body, not to trust life. It wasn’t an overnight fix. It’s taken time to incorporate new messages into my body, new skills into my daily life, it was slow and there were set-backs, but overtime my life has expanded, the pain has eased, and at almost eight decades, my life has become fuller and more satisfying than I knew was possible”.  -H.S.

Payment

Self pay only at this time. I do not accept insurance.

Superbill provided in Oregon or Washington for your insurance if reimbursement is possible

HSA (Health Savings Account) or FSA (Flexible Spending Account) accepted.

Please contact me to discuss options if paying for the services is prohibitive. There are many ways to learn this information that I am happy to share with you. I do not want finances to get in the way of healing.

…and more

This new science can help most people with chronic problems with normal tests when the doctors can’t find “anything wrong”, abnormal testing doesn’t completely explain your symptoms, or you continue to suffer despite the typical treatment.

It is critical to distinguish between a structural reason for your symptoms versus the neural signals stuck in place. We first explore the cause of your symptoms and determine if this is the right model for you.

Take the online self-assessment.

This quiz from the PPD Association can help see if your symptoms apply, but only a doctor can provide a diagnosis: 

“Dr. Kennedy is warm, kind, understanding and her approach works.”
