Kendra Benesch

I am Kendra Benesch, NCC, LCPC, a contract therapist for Lighthouse Center for Therapy & Play, LLC and co-owner of Ripples of Change Child and Family Therapy in Marriottsville, Maryland. I am a 2013 alumni of The Johns Hopkins University, an Equine Assisted Certified Therapist (EAGALA), and have special interests and training in early child development with over seven years of experience in this industry.

As a licensed professional counselor I have found that combining animal assisted interventions or expressive based practices with the traditional foundation of therapeutic intervention provides a unique and powerful outlet of expression for the children and families I am honored to work with. My future aspirations as a professional include; joining a disaster relief counseling team, completing my RPT (registered play therapy) certification, and teaching at a collegiate level.
