Dr. Kennard

Dr. Ainsley Kennard, Fort Lauderdale Psychologist

Dr. Kennard is a Florida licensed psychologist. After earning her Master’s degree in mental health counseling, she went on to achieve a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. She received specialized academic training from Nova Southeastern University on the clinical application of psychodynamic technique. Her postdoctoral fellowship was completed at Norwich University under the supervision of expert psychologists and certified psychoanalysts.


Through careful scholarship, her practice has been challenged and refined. Her extensive experience base is deeply rooted in the intellectual history of psychoanalysis, but is, at the same time, modern and multifaceted, emphasizing contemporary object relations and intersubjective theories.


Her private practice is located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. She provides individual therapy to adults who want to more authentically connect to themselves or others, come alive in their own skin, and alleviate symptoms in the process.
