Kenneth Miyake

Accepting Clients

I have been a clinical therapist/addiction counselor for over 22 years working in inpatient, outpatient, and private practice since 2018

Licensed Professional Counselor in Lombard, IL

About My Clients

My ideal client would be someone who comes into therapy struggling with life's problems, including mental health issues, addiction, relationship problems, self-esteem, guilt and shame, and spiritual emptiness. These clients seek to function in their lives and find some measure of meaning and purpose in order to obtain peace, serenity, and satisfaction. I serve adolescents, men and women, couples, and adults.

My Background and Approach

I am a master's level therapist with the credentials of MS LPC NCC CADC and specialize in addiction, relationship issues, mindfulness/meditation/spirituality, codependency, life coping skills, depression, anxiety, men's issues, boundaries, attachment, personality disorders, CBT, and I have been a practicing Mahayana Buddhist for the past 14 years, graduating from the Vajrayana Buddhist Center's General Program, Foundation Program, and Teacher Training Program in Oak Park. I was a branch teacher in Naperville for two years.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My approach has always been what Carl Rogers called the power of the "therapeutic relationship," which includes : unconditional positive regard, compassion, genuineness, empathy, and congruency. I help clients to empower themselves, by encouraging them to find their own solutions, which always lie within them. Empathy is built by establishing a trusting relationship and letting the client know that I fully accept them for who they are. The therapeutic relationship encourages self-exploration, catharsis, and postive risk taking, which foster personal growth. I would let let the client know that I am there for them and they can tell me anything without judgement.
