Kevin McDunn, Psy.D.
I earned my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology-Chicago and completed my doctoral internship at the University of Idaho Counseling and Testing Center. Over the past eight years, I have provided psychotherapy and psychological testing services across a variety of settings that have included university counseling centers, a therapeutic day school, and a behavioral health clinic affiliated with a prominent medical hospital in Chicago.
I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and mood-related concerns, relationship difficulties, grief and loss, coping with adjustment and life transitions, anger issues, and marriage and couples counseling. Assisting individuals in navigating existential concerns and stage-of-life challenges (with a focus on working with adolescents and adults) is a particular interest of mine. Other areas of interest include identity development across the lifespan, social and behavioral challenges, and trauma work. When suitable, I also enjoy offering psychological evaluations pertaining to issues including AD/HD and other attention-related concerns, learning disabilities, issues with executive functioning, and memory-related problems. I feel that the assessment process can often be beneficial in precisely identifying the underlying issues that may be compromising an individual's daily functioning.
My previous clinical training has placed a heavy emphasis on working cross-culturally with individuals, couples, and families across the lifespan. Having benefited from specialized training in the delivery of culturally informed (and culturally sensitive) therapy, I strive to be an active ally to the LGBT as well as racial minority communities. Integrating a variety of evidence-based therapies (including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based strategies, and client-centered techniques) enables me to provide the most effective and appropriate care to best meet the specific needs of my clients. I work to create a supportive, non-judgmental, safe, and empathic therapeutic environment, which I believe is conducive to openly discussing and addressing issues that are standing in the way of living a healthier and happier life. In working with my clients, I have found that utilizing a collaborative and individualized treatment approach is effective in identifying and better understanding the underlying causes of concerns and challenges they face. Through our work together, I will assist you in discovering and refining strategies to effectively manage these difficulties, successfully achieve your identified therapy goals.
