Professional statement

Kenneth Ward is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a virtual private practice based in Texas but resides in Alabama. He works with individual adults, with a focus on various types of trauma that include physical and sexual assaults or abuse both childhood or adult, domestic violence, accidents, combat or job related. He understands the challenges and difficulties of adjusting to life following a tragic event. Many of his clients have found a pathway to life beyond trauma as they learn how to win at love, life and work with the tragedies they have experienced. Kenneth demonstrates empathy and compassion to clients whose world has been “turned upside down” by things beyond their control which can lead to feelings of disconnection, confusion, guilt, fear, shame, loneliness, anxiety, sadness and hopelessness.

Kenneth’s approach is founded on the framework of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence-based approach that seeks to help clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, emotions and memories often trigger avoidant response strategies that may be unworkable and can often increase distress. He works with clients to explore what is not working and find alternative response strategies that work effectively to increase their quality of life. He will help clients develop present-moment-awareness through mindfulness practices and cognitive defusion as well as facilitate increase openness to internal experiences.

Kenneth is sensitive to the unique challenges of an individual’s experience and seeks to be creative and flexible in applying therapeutic strategies to client’s current experience and context in a person -centered, non-judgmental manner. Kenneth will meet the client were they are at and facilitate identifying a pathway toward the life they really want.
