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

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kevin Knack . We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
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.

He’s a very good therapist. He listens, and he helps.

He genuinely wants what is best for me. I have tried approximately 5 therapists and he is the first one who makes it feel like I am not an obligation. As someone going through depression, this is a key differentiator for why I continue to go to Kevin.
