About Me

Hi! I'm Monte. I've been a counselor since 2000, and I've worked with teens throughout the last 21 years as well as during college.

Not only that, but I have experience helping folks integrate their faith into their therapy. However, I am okay with not discussing religion or spirituality if you so desire.

What adults consider "teen angst" you probably feel to be a roller coaster of emotions and perplexing social situations that you must navigate daily. "Why do guys act like that?" you may say. Or "why do girls act like that?" you may say. It's also a time of confusion. Who am I? What do I believe? I'm here to help. I enjoy helping teens navigate through the hurdles of life.

I usually joke around from time to time in therapy as a way of putting a person at ease. Likewise, I also am "real" with people. What you see is what you get with me. My biggest desire (aside from helping you navigate your teen years) is to make you feel completely comfortable with me when we meet online.

Furthermore, I will occasionally share parts of my "story" (when appropriate) to help you know that you're not alone in your struggles.

Rev. Kuykendall is easy to talk to, and has a great sense of humor! For me, his humor makes me feel at ease and helps me not to be too hard on myself when I'm struggling. He's also very sensitive and understanding to my issues, and provides me with practical tools to work through them.

Monte is a great guy, you can tell that he really cares about your well being. Easy to get along with and is will to do research for you and find new things/ ways to help you. He does like to joke around a bit to lighten the mood but also knows when to be serious and listen to you.

Rev. Is very down to earth and easy to connect with. He does a great job of connecting with my husband who was a bit resistant to couples counseling. Rev. Is able to see both sides and hold sessions which we both leave feeling good about. He has a great sense of humor and keeps us smiling throughout our chats!

Counseling has been really helpful thanks to Monte. He really helps me work on issues that I’ve been dealing with for a long time and he is funny so it doesn’t make things too serious for me and more importantly he applauds my progress and encourages me to go easy on myself. I would 100% recommend him to anyone.
