Kevin McKenzie

Counselor, LCSW, LMHP

Really, truly getting to know who a person is and what their needs are is a crucial party of my job. One of the things I do is give clients things to work on over the course of the week. Our therapy sessions are a great place to think and strategize - but counseling sessions are most effective if the strategies we develop are carried out in the real world. When we act as as a team change can happen quicker and have longer-lasting effects. In the end my goal is to put myself out of the job by helping clients get to where they want to be in their lives. When clients don't need to see me anymore, I've done my job. My approach to therapy is to be a normal guy who also has the tools necessary to help teenagers, adults and families. I'm straightforward and blunt. I say it like I see it. In addition to my work at the Center, I help run the Excel program for youth - meeting with students in two Sarpy County schools, locations where we can really get a sense of what's really going on.
