Camas native opens psychotherapy practice

An open house will be held Saturday at Vancouver Wellness Studio

A Camas High School graduate has returned to the area and opened a health care practice.

On Sept. 1 Kendall (Morris) Hagensen, a somatic psychotherapist, opened a holistic, collaborative health care center in downtown Vancouver.

A grand opening celebration for Vancouver Wellness Studio will be held Saturday, Oct. 1, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The day will include free offerings in the studio, a catered open house, a performance by Vancouver School of Arts and Academics dancers, a belly dancing demonstration, a raffle, and a chance to meet practitioners.

Services offered at VWS include mental health counseling for all ages — individuals, couples, families and groups; wellness coaching; naturopathic medicine and acupuncture; chiropractic care for all ages, including prenatal, babies and kids; massage therapy, craniosacral therapy and energy bodywork; and holistic personal training focusing on corrective exercise.

VWS also offers a variety of community movement classes, wellness workshops, and continuing education for health care professionals.

Hagensen graduated from CHS in 2005, and from Western Washington University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology with a minor in dance. In 2014 she completed a master’s degree in somatic counseling psychology with a specialization in dance/movement therapy from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.

Hagensen moved back to Clark County in 2014.

VWC is located at 800 Franklin St., Ste. 200.
