Dr. Kevin Stefanek

LPC

About Me

I am a professional counselor licensed in Minnesota with over 10 years of experience as a therapist and performance enhancement/sport psychology consultant. I have worked with clients on a broad array of issues, including anxiety, depression, performance related challenges (for example, in sport, job, or school), relationship difficulties, life and career transitions, substance abuse, and parenting struggles.

My therapeutic style is attentive, curious, and patient. That style also includes treating all people with respect and cultural sensitivity. My therapeutic approach is a combination of motivational interviewing, humanistic, cognitive behavioral, and acceptance and commitment therapies. I see myself as a guide or coach who uses empirically supported treatments to help clients discover their own answers and solutions based on their lived experiences.

You are the expert on you and I can help guide you through the process of developing the skills you need to live the life you want. You have taken a courageous step toward improving your health and well-being. I would be pleased to take further steps with you along your journey.

He has been so kind and considerate with me. It’s been hard with a lot going on to reconnect and talk my feelings through with him. The understanding and thoughtfulness he puts forth, is outstanding. Looking forward to my next appointment with him

I am extremely grateful for Dr. Stefanik.

I couldn’t have been assigned a better doctor to get me moving forward on becoming a better version of myself.

The shifts even after this short of time have been phenomenal.

Dr Kevin, I wanted to thank you so much for making my first therapy sessions so easy and accessible and more importantly giving me a set of tools to help me deal with the various challenges I've encountered. I've been able to incorporate many of the learnings into my everyday life and it's helped me to improve my stress levels, better my relationship with my girlfriend and fall asleep faster! Many thanks and I hope to speak to you again soon. I hope you have a great break.

My first positive experience with a therapist. He is compassionate, thoughtful, and intelligent. I’m grateful for Dr. Stefanek. I feel more in control of my mental health now than at any other point in my adult life.

Written by E.D. on May 09, 2022 after therapy with Kevin for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Dr. Stefanek brings much more to the table than I expected from a psychology app. Dr. S is able to not only understand situations from multiple angles, but he’s also able to advise on situations from multiple perspectives. With this type of expertise, we are able to whittle down to the best possible and PRACTICAL solutions. I’m very grateful to call him my doctor.

Dr. Stefanek is supremely patient, listens very well, offers empirically based frameworks for understanding my own thoughts and choices, and offers actionable advice. He is also very down to Earth, which I value very much in a therapist.

Kevin was a fantastic person to share my issues with. He was very good at listening to me and made sure not to explain his own viewpoint as an “absolute truth”. When I can come back to BetterHelp I’ll make sure to get connected with him again.
