My experience working with a variety of mental health issues is vast; however, I commonly work with such topics as trauma, depression, anxiety, ADHD, athletics, divorce, male sexual assault, LGBTQ concerns, and much more.
I am Kyle Wockenfuss, a licensed mental health practitioner in the state of Nebraska and I am pleased you are considering taking control of your wellness. I firmly believe we all have the capacity to have a healthy, meaningful, and satisfying life regardless of the challenges we sometimes encounter. For these reasons, among others, I became a professional counselor and educator. I have worked in a variety of placements, including college-counseling centers, inpatient services, and in private practice.

I have experience working with individuals and family members within the LGBTQ + community.
I believe, often life can feel “out of balance” and we are unsure of what to do. Sometimes we feel stuck, unable to reach a goal—or sometimes we struggle to even know what our goals are. This is where counseling can be helpful. I work with my clients to understand where they are at, and how they experience life. Together, we work to build a path toward change.

I have been involved in the LGBT community for over four decades.
I have been working with adolescents, adults and families since the mid 1980's. Substance abuse, depression, anxiety, LGBT and family issues are the areas that I have the most experience in. I believe folks come to therapy because some aspects of their lives are not working...we will explore these issues and move to get you where you want and need to be. I have many years of various types of training, but the most important is to get people back to being comfortable, happy and productive in their own world. Compassion and humor are extremely important values to find in each of our lives!!

What parts of yourself do you hide? Often, we hide complex parts of ourselves out of fear. Sometimes those fears are grounded in messages we receive from meaningful others in our lives. Other times, our fears are based on very realistic cultural appraisals. Whatever the source(s), hiding yourself and your feelings can contribute to anxiety, loneliness, depression, avoidance, relationship difficulties, unresolved traumas, secretive behaviors, and unrealized potential. Within a strong, supportive, and affirming therapeutic relationship, you can fully experience the complexity of yourself without the judgment or rejection you fear.

I have experience with people of all ages and people leaving & scared of relationships, survivors of sexual abuse, and members of the LGBTQIA + community.
Especially in difficult times, it can be hard to find sources of acceptance, affirmation, and healing. Often the people closest to us - family, classmates, and co-workers, don't accept us for who we are. Perhaps we are gifted and see the world differently, in a new relationship and scared of old mistakes, are living an alternative lifestyle, or are trying to better understand ourselves and our past. Whatever the reason, we also desire to be happy, whole, and loved - and especially to become something more than what we are. Trauma can hold us back - creating negative habits and barriers to our success.

Whether they be individuals in (and out of) the LGBTQA + population, people suffering from anxiety, and those who are experiencing relationship or sexual issues.
Being willing is a major factor to learning and growing through therapy. I provide a safe space for people to explore emotional, mental, sexual, physical, and/or spiritual concerns. Do you feel disconnected from yourself & others? Are you struggling with your identity & accepting yourself? Are you feeling anxious or fearful (who isn't during a global pandemic, really?)? Do you not want to feel that way anymore but are unsure as to how? You possess the answers. Therapy provides an opportunity to be seen, heard, and validated while you find your answers. I will help facilitate and provide guidance through this client-led process.

I have experience working with anxiety, depression, parenting, behavioral issues, LGBTQ issues, and marriage/family.
I truly believe in the effectiveness of counseling when the client and counselor can work together to identify concerns and generate effective and realistic solutions. My approach to counseling stems from the belief that you are the expert on your own life and I will work with you to find insight and create meaningful solutions that will impact the quality of your life. My goal is not to judge, but is instead to create a safe space where we can explore areas of difficulty together. Client’s I’ve worked with appreciate my ability recognize the uniqueness of each person’s story and provide an individualized approach.

I've had the opportunity to work with and learn from diverse populations, including the LGBTQ + community, and more specifically transgender and gender diverse youth and adults.
I strive to understand people in all of their complexity. My goal in therapy is to see through a client’s lens as much as possible, and then work with them to find positive changes they can make in their lives. Drawing heavily from the evidence-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy model (ACT), I help clients to be more mindful of the interface between their internal and external experiences. When we become more aware of the patterns in our thoughts, emotions, and actions, we can be intentional about releasing what is not helpful to us.

I have experience working with depression, anxiety, life transitions, PTSD, trauma, relationship concerns, LGBTQ +, and more.
Sometimes we encounter a point in life that feels overwhelming, or sometimes things are manageable but a lot to bear, and there comes a time when you need a professional to guide you through it. That's where I come in! I believe that clients are the experts of their life, meaning they take me on their journey, and I am simply there as a guide to help navigate what can be a windy path. Therapy is vulnerable, therefore I strive to create a safe environment by being my authentic self, meeting clients with kindness and grace and bringing in light humor, and I hope that you will feel comfortable to authentically be yourself, too.

I work with individuals of the LGBTQIA + community and the BIPOC community with an informed approach to social and justice issues.
I understand that mental health needs come from a wide variety of life experiences. I aim to offer a safe space where individuals can explore issues in their life through an Existential lens to help them find clarification and awareness. I work with clients to identify behaviors that they have learned as a way to adapt to their life experiences and how those behaviors impact the type of life that they desire. I aim to help clients rebuild a sense of hope within themselves that a different experience of life is possible.

My experience includes treatment of depression, anxiety, mood disorders, eating concerns, relationship issues, identity development, life transitions, LGBTQ + related concerns, grief, stress, trauma, and low self-esteem/body image.
It can be difficult to take those first steps to start counseling services, and I believe that finding someone who is a good fit for you is such an important part of the therapeutic process. My first priority is always the working relationship that I have with my clients, and my style is very warm and collaborative in nature. My hope for your therapy process is to work together to identify goals, engage in self-exploration, and make the changes that you want to see in your life. I feel that it is my job to provide a safe environment for you to grow and learn more about yourself, and to build trust to begin making those changes!

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I believe in a modern approach to mental wellness that not only focuses on traditional talk therapy but utilizes tools such as meditation, nutrition, movement and sleep to restore a person back to their optimum mental health. I take a person-centered approach that looks inward to find answers to all we need for true health and happiness. Whether you are grappling with a specific issue around which you need serious support, or you are finally trying to uncover who the heck you really are, I am here for you! I have over 20 years experience working with youth, adults, individuals and families.

I am LGBTQIA + affirming and have experience providing support through hormone therapy.
Through individual therapy, I help adolescents, young adults, and adults who are experiencing fear and worrisome thoughts. Trying to manage anxiety may feel completely hopeless, and may result in damaging relationships, inability to focus in school or at work, and overall feel out of control. Life can be chaotic and confusing but approaching and managing anxiety in an effective way can help bring about greater self-compassion, acceptance, and freedom to live the life you deserve.
