My Approach to Helping

Kevin J. Kohnke is a licensed professional counselor who knows what it is like to struggle with depression and anxiety, and he is eager to walk with you to address your mental health needs.

Kevin's approach is client-driven. He has a caring heart and desires for you to work on what is most important to you. Kevin has experience using cognitive behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, Internal Family Systems, and solution-focused therapy.

Kevin has walked along the side of persons with many mental health concerns including but not limited to; depression, anxiety, communication, parenting, anger issues, PTSD, Life transitions, career coaching and grief.

I prefer a relaxed setting in my sessions. You may have heard "humor is the best medicine" so I try where applicable to add humor to my sessions. I also strive to find strengths in everyone I meet.

I became licensed as a Mental Health Therapist while working as a Professor at Concordia University Nebraska. I did part time counseling while teaching. After nearly 8 years in Higher Education I returned to the serving a congregation as pastor. I became the pastor of a rural congregation in Nebraska and after five years of service at that church, in September of 2022 I retired at age 57 from pastoring and began fulltime counseling.
God has been able to use me with my vast experiences to share insights into our therapeutic sessions.

When setting goals for treatment it is important the the client participates and sets measurable and realistic goals that they agree to work toward.

In our first session we will get to know one another as we discuss your presenting problem, past mental healthy therapy and goals for your sessions.
