Kyle is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with a Master of Arts degree in Community Counseling from Argosy University. He completed his undergraduate work at Judson University with a degree in Human Services.
Working in multiple settings has allowed Kyle to develop his skills set and gain experience in working with a diverse range of individuals. Kyle helps clients who are struggling with a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, behavioral problems, opposition, trauma-related concerns, and substance abuse, among others. Additionally, he works with clients who are seeking guidance in personal growth, overcoming family conflict, adjusting to circumstances surrounding adoption, and coming to terms with grief and loss. Kyle also has extensive experience working with adolescents and families who are struggling to find common ground due to various challenges within the home or other environments. Before joining Centennial Counseling Center, Kyle worked in community agencies, hospitals, and group homes, frequently in collaboration with psychiatrists, schools, police stations, and social service agencies.
Providing counsel from the perspective of the client, Kyle focuses on developing the therapeutic relationship to create positive change. He challenges clients to develop their narrative by exploring their past to identify values, truth, and purpose. These core concepts are then implemented in the creation of goals and woven into the present as clients begin to write a new story that allows them to live in accordance with who they are and who they want to become. In addition to narrative therapy, Kyle also incorporates principles and techniques from various counseling theories in order to best meet clients’ individual needs and allow them to achieve their goals.
Kyle works in our St. Charles office.
