Today, Kevin Kurtz, Clinical Director at Shepherds Hill Academy, invites us to have a seat in his office as we get a behind-the-scenes look at SHA. Kevin is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Christian Counselor, a Certified Anger Management Specialist, and an ordained minister. As Clinical Director, Kevin works with a variety of people and across a number of departments, but his primary role is overseeing the Therapeutic Department.
The faculty and staff at Shepherds Hill Academy truly consider it a blessing to have someone like Kevin as our Clinical Director. Kevin works to manage and assist the other four therapists on the SHA staff and completes many administrative duties for the Therapeutic Department. While Kevin’s role as Clinical Director involves many managerial responsibilities, he also gets a chance to interact with the students at SHA by leading group therapy sessions for the boys each week.
Kevin not only serves the students and therapists at SHA, but also other SHA staff members in his additional role as Chaplain. As the Chaplain at SHA, Kevin makes himself available to staff members and provides a listening ear and pastoral counseling to help them with any difficulties they may face both on and off the job. Kevin also organizes weekly chapel services for the students at SHA. If you want to learn more about Kevin, check out this article and visit our Therapeutic Team staff page.
