Kevin moved to Seattle in 2002 to study at the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. He received both a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology and a certificate in Domestic Violence Advocacy in 2007. Kevin also has a BA in Mass Communications from Taylor University in Upland, IN.
He started his professional career in mental health at a psychiatric hospital and spent over a decade working with youth, adolescent and adult patients. He was an instructor for Non-violent Crisis Intervention in both the hospital and community settings during this time. For the final three years, he served as the Supervisor for the two alternative schools the hospital ran, while also acting as a liaison to Lake Washington School District as a mental health professional. In 2013, he taught as an adjunct professor in City University’s graduate program for counseling psychology.
He transitioned out of the mental health field to help raise his two young sons in 2012. After a brief stint as a full-time stay-at-home dad, he received a certification from the National Association of Sports Medicine (2014) and began personal training in the private sector. In 2015, he contracted with EXOS Sports Performance and expanded his personal training to corporate gyms at both the Nintendo headquarters in Redmond, WA and Google campuses in Kirkland and Seattle.
Kevin once again pivoted during 2020 when the pandemic closed most of the gyms and facilities across the globe. He began his own coaching business, focusing on a holistic, integrative approach to helping busy professionals find balance in work and life. With Kevin’s extensive background in psychology in both clinical and community settings, as well as education in personal training, he provides a balanced approach that empowers clients to examine their present circumstances, acknowledge and accept the past, while firmly moving towards a healthier future.
