Licensed Psychologist Kenna Bolton Holz has joined the Health Psychology Department at Essentia Health-Duluth in Duluth, Minnesota.

As part of the Health Psychology Team, Bolton Holz will focus on the connection between her patients’ physical and mental health. “In health psychology, we focus on using psychological interventions to improve health outcomes,” she explains. “We work to develop and implement skills to manage chronic health conditions, cope with stress and achieve health goals.”

Bolton Holz earned a doctorate degree in clinical psychology from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois.

“I chose to be a clinical psychologist because it is a way to combine an understanding of people with an understanding of science,” says Bolton Holz. “People are fascinating, and I enjoy working with them to solve problems and reach their goals.”
