K*METAMORPHOSIS COUNSELING SERVICES

Kendra Davis, Clinical Substance Abuse Trainer, is a 1999 & 2009 graduate ofWinston-SalemStateUniversity, where she earned both a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology (1999) & a Master of Science Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling (2009). She is an Internationally Certified, Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor who is licensed by both the International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium and the NC Substance Abuse Professional Practice Board (NCSAPPB) as a Certified Clinical Supervisor (CCS), and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS). She has obtained professional certification as a Certified Criminal Justice Addiction Professional & Clinical Supervisor (NCSAPPB) and Certified Sex Offender Treatment Specialist by the National Association of Forensic Counselors.

In October of 2009, the Winston-Salem Chronicle featured an article reflecting on the life changing work of Kendra Davis at the ForsythCorrectionalCenter, where she was responsible for the development & implementation of a rehabilitation / re-entry program for inmates and recently released offenders who desire to break the cycle of crime and punishment.  

While counseling individuals with substance abuse disorders, sex offenders and those who are currently incarcerated are her area of expertise, she has also worked in other positions in the community throughout her career that reflect her character as a “true humanitarian”.

In 2010, Kendra established K*METAMORPHOSIS, a counseling organization whose vision, mission and philosophy was birthed out of the desire to fill a much needed treatment gap in the community. The organization’s mission is to utilize a holistic approach to restore fallen humanity. This organization was built on the belief, that individuals like that of a caterpillar, who at one time did not look like very much, limited by his/her surroundings, but after having gone through a process called “metamorphosis”, their life changed drastically! With that in mind this organization believes that individuals are capable of changing from the inside out and will successfully transitioning from one phase in their life to another. This organization is committed to empower individuals with the necessary tools, to recover with dignity and respect. 

Kendra’s motto: “Your past failures will not dictate your future, or hold you hostage unless you allow it!”
