Kervins started off his career working with families in the Family Clinic at the University of Florida. During his time there, he worked with families to help them develop meaningful connections to each other. Kervins worked with young women at Pace Center for Girls Alachua (PACE) who had experienced severe trauma, including foster home placement, substance abuse (client or family member), domestic violence, incarceration of a family member, neglect, physical/emotional/sexual abuse, grief, emotional health concerns, low income, and more. Kervins also worked with clients at UF Health Florida Recovery Center (FRC), an inpatient and outpatient treatment facility that helps clients struggling with addiction. Kervins learned how to integrate the well-established and proven 12-Step program into his counseling sessions. Kervins also worked at the Vacc Clinic at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, working with college students and couples from the community.
Kervins believes that counseling is another journey that someone takes in life. He hopes to come along with his clients on their journey and to work in a collaborative manner to help them develop their definition of a meaningful life. In their work together, Kervins and his clients will identify patterns that are holding them back from having the life they want and will work on developing the skills and wisdom necessary to help them achieve their meaningful lives.
Kervins hopes to achieve these goals through providing a safe, non-judgmental and open environment. Kervins works with each individual and couple differently to develop a personal treatment plan to address the needs of the clients. Kervins uses a variety of interventions, including emotions, cognitive behavioral techniques, motivational interviewing, Gottman method and behavior modification. Kervins works with every individual and couple from a person centered, systemic and culturally sensitive approach.
