Kevin Seske, LCPC, NCC

My approach to therapy is collaborative, empowering, nonjudgmental, trauma informed, and goal-focused. I see therapy as a method to find the individual’s strengths to help overcome any hardships they may be struggling with in their life.

I integrate treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, Narrative Therapy, Existential Therapy, and mindfulness techniques. In addition, I incorporate Sports Psychology in sessions where appropriate as I believe physical activity can empower us and teach us life skills that boost self-esteem, promote team building, and aid in relaxation. These methods are proven to show reduction in anxiety and depression.

I specialize in treating PTSD among young adults, adults, and/or immigrant populations. I am also skilled in treating mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression, grief, emotional abuse, and life transitions. I have been told by clients and colleagues that I have a calming presence, am a good listener, and always stay positive.

My previous experience as a counselor has included providing trauma-informed care for undocumented minors who arrived at the US border seeking refuge from their home countries; including children who were experiencing Adjustment Disorder, PTSD, and sometimes Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Additionally, I served in a federally qualified health center on the Soutwest side of Chicago, in their clinical setting and school-based health center. I worked with patients of all ages and needs, but primarily with youth struggling with trauma, disabilities, abuse, and living with chronic illnesses.

When I’m not at work, I love running, traveling, spending time with my family and friends, and, most of all, enjoying time with my wife and our dog. I am passionate about the integration of physical and emotional health, animal rescue, and health care as a human right. I am a movie nerd and love, above all, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy. It’s possible I will also use Batman quotes in sessions; you have been warned.
