I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota. My graduate school training was from Winona State University in Winona, MN. I worked in a private practice mental health agency there in Winona for three years, in addition to serving in a residential treatment facility assisting adults in recovery from mental health crises back to independent living. I am currently meeting with out-patient clients in a new counseling agency in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
I have worked with people from all walks of life facing difficult and unexpected challenges, causing a variety of mental health issues. I work with a Person-Centered approach and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, along with Strength-Based modalities. I like to identify strengths in people and help them grow. The therapeutic relationship between client and counselor offers a strong foundation to assist clients in recovering balance in life and the freedom to move ahead on a more peaceful journey. I know life can be rough at times, but with help, it can also be better!
Some may be desiring a Christian-based therapy, and that is also an option we can incorporate.
Additional areas of focus: Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, ADHD, Aging and Geriatric Issues, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Intellectual Disability, Obsessions, Compulsions, and OCD, Social Anxiety and Phobia
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing

My conversation with Kevin was so beneficial. He was so kind and listened well. He asked good questions that got me thinking and encouraged me greatly. He follows up with messages just the right amount and is fast to respond. I was starving for someone older than me that had wisdom to share and I found that in Kevin. I highly recommend him.

Kevin has supported me for over a year. He is reliable, encouraging and provides a safe space. He has given me the tools to overcome my obstacles, whether they are extrinsic or instrinric challenges.

Kevin was very compassionate and exceptional by helping me put things in a better perspective, enabling me evaluate things more clearly. We discussed self blame and guilt. I was finally freed from the thought traps that kept me stuck. Together we found ways to move forward in kindness, gentleness and acceptance towards myself and those around me. He really was a God send.
