More About Kyle Dufek

Clinical Interests:

I work with a wide range of clients that include adults, adolescents, families, and couples. I have a special interest in providing culturally sensitive care, and I value being able to explore different aspects of identity that create the whole individual. Through my experience as a substance abuse counselor, I’ve learned effective ways to address co-occurring disorders. In addition, I've worked with clients struggling with the following: anxiety, depression, life adjustments, sexual identity concerns, relationship difficulties, schizophrenia, school stressors, and others.

Clinical Approach:

I use a person-centered approach as a basis of counseling; I believe that clients often already have the answers to their struggles, and through creating a space of unconditional positive regard, we can find these answers together. Additionally, I incorporate other theories that seem appropriate for clients which include: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic, Motivational Interviewing, and Gestalt. Ultimately, my approach is collaborative, I believe in facing problems as a team.


I enjoy spending time with my wife and my little pup, Theo, a miniature schnauzer. We go for long walks that, unfortunately, do not appear to tire little Theo out. I enjoy playing sports of all kinds that include: basketball, bowling, football, volleyball, and really anything that is competitive. I also spend time watching sports, movies, and anything that allows me to get a good snicker. (A plus, if I’m already eating a snickers bar)
